In the third episode of the podcast we look at the refugee crises. The bulk of the episode is taken up by a 54-minute conversation between The Blind Spot co-founder Hatty and Harriet Paintin, who has volunteered in Lesbos and Istanbul, working with refugees. She gives an essential insight into what it’s like on Lesbos for the refugees, as well as describing the awful press behaviour, the smugglers, and the broader political situation.
Additionally Rhys reads his article, Don’t Stand By, which urges Britain and Europe to do far more for refugees, particularly vulnerable children. There’s also an update on the topic of Episode 1, the junior doctors’ strike.
