The Week That Was at Global Voices Podcast: Unsung Heroes

The Week That Was podcast takes a look at some of the stories that we’ve published recently on Global Voices.

This week, we take you to Bosnia and Herzegovina, Japan and Myanmar. We also speak with Global Voices Brazil editor Taisa Sganzerla about a heinous rape case that has Brazil and other parts of the world in uproar and with Global Voices contributor Leila Nachawati Rego about her new novel that pays homage to the anonymous people who are living, loving and resisting for Syria.

Many thanks to all our authors, translators and editors who helped make this possible. This episode features stories by Filip StojanovskiNevin ThompsonMong Palatino, Fernanda Canofre and Taisa Sganzerla, and Firuzeh Shokooh Valle.
