On empathy - with Catalina Gomez, a Colombian journalist in Ukraine

October 25, 2023
What do we get if we turn away from the abstract “geopolitical” or “military” analysis of this war and talk about the human side of it?

What do we see if we look at this war primarily as a story of human suffering and courage?

  • This episode's guest is Catalina Gomez, a Colombian journalist working in Ukraine for France 24.

In this episode, we talk about the empathy and compassion that spans oceans and vast distances. We also talk about Ukrainian writer Victoria Amelina, who was killed by a Russian missile strike in Kramatorsk which Catalina managed to survive.
