From agriculture to planes, Washington state holds its own when it comes to international trade. 

For many people, places like Canada, China and Japan easily come to mind when we think about trading partners. But Mexico also does a lot of business with our state.

That's what The Seattle Times City Hall reporter Dan Beekman learned when he spoke with Seattle's Consul of Mexico Roberto Dondisch. They talked for The Seattle Times weekly politics podcast called The Overcast.

Beekman and Dondisch also talked about what a consul does, Mexico's stance on climate change and the effect of rhetoric from the Trump administration. 

To hear their whole conversation, listen to this week's episode of The Overcast. You can find The Overcast on iTunes, Tunein, Sticher and SoundCloud.
