The Migrant Crisis Podcast
About This Show
A show about migration, conflict, climate change and the occasional Simpsons joke. Journalists Mike Meehall Wood, Sophie Pornschlegel, and Frey Lindsay bring in-depth coverage of the various crises, including the causes of migration, the different routes that are taken by migrants, and the responses at European and national level to migration flows. We provide an alternative to the shrieking sensationalist headlines, and bring you the voices of the people involved, from NGO workers and politicians to activists most importantly, refugees themselves.
