The Doorstep is an innovative international news podcast that invites listeners to recognize that all global news is local in a borderless internet. Hosted by award-winning professor of journalism Tatiana Serafin, with author and international relations scholar, Nikolas Gvosdev, The Doorstep seeks to challenge insular thinking and broaden listener perspectives. Each week, Serafin and Gvosdev will tackle new topics and regions discussing why they matter to a rising young electorate changing the shape of the United States today.
