Today we’re thrilled to announce a new partnership with the International Rescue Committee (IRC) to produce a weekly podcast, titled Displaced. Publishing each Tuesday beginning April 10, examining the impact of humanitarian crises around the globe, the effects on people’s lives and livelihoods, and innovative solutions to provide meaningful aid.
Displaced is hosted by Ravi Gurumurthy, IRC’s Chief Innovation Officer, and Grant Gordon, IRC’s Director of Innovation Strategy, and is produced in partnership with the Vox Media Podcast Network. The premiere episode of Displaced, on April 10, will feature an interview with former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.
”Displaced comes at crucial time: the global refugee crisis is growing exponentially, the horrors of civil war persist in Syria, and news of human rights abuses around the world is routinely overshadowed by headlines about political chaos in the U.S.,” said Nishat Kurwa, executive producer, Vox Media Podcast Network. “Displaced centers these issues, inviting audiences into thoughtful, illuminating conversations between leading human rights defenders and experts from the IRC.”
