Bourbon & Basketball: The Security Council visits Kentucky

UN-scripted: PassBlue’s podcast takes you inside the United Nations — beyond the carefully written policy speeches to where the real work is being done: the unscripted debates on the most pressing issues of our time. Named “One of the Best Podcasts of the Year” by Esquire Magazine in 2019.

Because the UN is located in New York City, the ambassadors don’t often get to see the rest of the US, let alone experience “Southern hospitality.” No more.

As Security Council President this month, US Ambassador Kelly Knight Craft is taking the council “home for the holidays” to her home state of Kentucky.

PassBlue Editor Dulcie Leimbach travelled to the horse capital of the world to see what’s in store for the ambassadors, and learn more about Knight Craft’s hometown and family history.

PassBlue Contributor Irwin Arieff also joins us to discuss Knight Craft’s record since taking the UN post in September.
