When I tell people I make podcasts for The Conversation and that we interview academics, they often ask me what kind of topics do you cover? I reply that to thanks the breadth and depth of research taking place in universities around the world our range is extraordinary. And that’s certainly the case in our podcasts from 2023.

In our flagship global show The Conversation Weekly, we’ve run stories about breakthroughs in malaria vaccines, to the extinction of Neanderthals, to domicide in Syria. And in September, we ran Inside the Oslo Accords, a three-part series with academics James Rodgers and Amnon Arran marking 30 years since the Oslo peace process. Their conversations with some of the leading figures from Israel-Palestine peace negotiations in the 1990s are a must-listen for anyone trying to understand the faltering history of peace in the Middle East. Below you’ll find links to highlights and spin-off articles from shows.
