WASHINGTON, DC. - One of NPR’s most under-appreciated qualities might be that unlike most large US news organizations, it still boasts a robust network of international correspondents. Even if the typical morning or afternoon broadcast is filled mostly with the latest twist in domestic politics, NPR still tends to squeeze in a foreign dispatch.

But NPR's 17 foreign-based correspondents will now be stretching out their reporting with the network’s newest podcast, Rough Translation, which debuts next Monday with a story about race relations in Brazil by Gregory Warner. Warner just completed a four-year run as NPR’s East Africa correspondent, and will also serve as the show’s host.
