‘No’ to Peace in Colombia: Into the Deep Podcast

Into the Deep is a new Global Voices podcast that digs deep into one issue that isn’t getting the media coverage it deserves.

In this week's episode, we hear from Global Voices contributors Robert Valencia and Andrés Lombana-Bermudez as well as peace advocate Diego Osorio about why Colombians voted “No” in a referendum to confirm a peace agreement between Colombia's government and the militant group FARC that would have finally put an end to more than 50 years of war.

In this episode, we featured Creative Commons-licensed music from the Free Music Archive, including songs by Blue Dot Sessions called Ray Gun – FasterFasterBrighter (CC BY-NC 4.0) and Denzel Sprak (CC BY-NC 4.0), and We Are; by A Ninja Slob Drew Me (CC BY-NC 4.0).
