EP 18 - A chat with Valeria Mongelli, author of "On Board Sea-Watch 3: Scenes from a Rescue Operation"
01/02/2022Between the 17 and 18 October 2021 the humanitarian ship Sea-Watch 3 rescued 412 people from seven different vessels that had come into difficulty in the Central Mediterranean, within striking distance of the Libyan coast. Rob, a veteran activist, was driving one of the rescue boats. From threats by the Libyan Coast Guard to the practicalities of hosting hundreds of people on a small ship exposed to the elements, he and the rest of the crew faced many challenges in their mission to help migrants reach a safe port in Europe. This is an account of five days out in the open water, saving human lives.
EP 17 - A chat with Davide Mancini, author of "How wildfires and climate change are threatening Sicily's future"
21/12/2021With two thirds of Sicily at risk of desertification, even the highest peaks of the Mediterranean’s largest island are undergoing irreversible changes. The inhabitants of the Madonie mountains are now facing unprecedented fires that, while often manmade, are exacerbated by heatwaves like ‘Lucifer’ which took place over the summer. Residents and workers in the area - once the source of ice for the world-famous Sicilian gelato - now find themselves struggling against climate change, with little assistance from politicians.
A chat with Quentin Ariès, author of “Faking it: the man who tried to game the media system”
02/12/2021“Faking it: the man who tried to game the media system” is the story of Ludovic Zanker, who appears to be one of the most well-connected men in Europe. For over a decade he’s been presenting himself as a political consultant, ready to provide advice to high-profile figures about international affairs. Media outlets have interviewed him as an expert on topics as diverse as the Russia sanctions and the Afghanistan crisis to Brexit and Europe’s vaccination strategy believing him to be a figure at heart of diplomatic negotiations. The problem is, his entire persona is a fabrication. But to what extent has Zanker been able to trick the world? And what does his scam say about us?
