Episode 23 - We were hoping to have a better life, but now we are in Nauru.
Welcome to the Migrant Crisis Podcast, the show that explores migration, war, and culture and frames it all through political analysis and Simpsons jokes.
On this Episode:
- We take our first look at the horrors of the Nauru detention facilities, and the continuing trainwreck that is Australia's asylum policy.
- Mike speaks with Abdalaziz Alhamza, an activist and co-founder of Raqqa is being Slaughtered Silently, on their tireless work to report on life in Daesh's stronghold.
- And Frey speaks with Mir, a founder of Boys of Bangladesh, on living as a gay man in Dhaka, and losing friends to Islamist violence. There are many reasons why people seek asylum, it's not just war.
