Check out this example of a podcast I recently made on the role of aid in South Sudan together with Dutch development expert Johan te Velde.

Running time 20 minutes

 

What the podcast is about:

This is the first episode of a new pilot podcast to generate discussion on the work of aid agencies – NGOs – who are struggling to make the world a better place.

It focuses on South Sudan and asks if donor countries need to rethink what they are doing there.

Critics say aid has become part of the problem as it stops the country’s leaders taking responsibility for the chaos they are causing in the world’s newest country.

South Sudan is on the brink of collapse, millions have fled fighting and millions more are internally displaced.

How do NGOs operate in this climate? The podcast features Jok Madut Jok the director of the independent Sudd Institute in South Sudan, Peter Oomen an independent development consultant from the Netherlands and Professor Thea Hilhorst from the Institute for Social Studies Erasmus University.

The podcast is produced by podcast producer Andy Clark from Podcasting4u.com and South Sudan specialist Johan te Velde from Double Loop It was produced to coincide with the Knowledge Platform for Security and Rule of Law Conference Elephants in the Room in the Hague on September 7th, 2017.
