The podcast Are You Listening? takes a look at some of the stories that have recently come out of the Global Voices newsroom. In this episode, we’ll hear about the tragic ways in which Venezuela is changing; the injustice that residents of Indian-administered Kashmir face; the fierce pride Nigerians have for their jollof rice recipe; the apparent criminalization of certain Facebook friendships in Thailand; and the institutionalized racism that exists within Brazil's justice system.

Also, a shout-out to Global Voices contributors Luis Carlos Diaz , Nwachukwu Egbunike , Mong Palatino , Mariana Parra, and Raphael Tsavkko Garcia  and our partner VideoVolunteers  for the stories we featured in this podcast.
