  • The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) enjoys vast deposits of precious minerals and metals. Diamonds are found in the south and center of the country and the land holds 80% of the world’s Coltan, needed in all our mobile phones. It should be one of the richest countries on Earth, but it is not. This Podcast explores why, from the very beginning.

    A new podcast will be released each Monday every two weeks, the website is https://www.thehistoryofthecongo.com

    Starting in prehistoric times, we talk through the topography and the Bantu migrations. We meet the famous empires of Central Africa. Firstly we meet the The Kingdom of the Kongo which posted diplomats throughout Europe and whose Kings corresponded with the superpowers of the day, and with the Vatican. This Kingdom was able to ally with International forces and militarily confront the initial European expansions. We are introduced to the Luba peoples who developed the Bulopwe system of government which spread through central Africa and sat as the bedrock for the adjacent Lunda Empire.
    We see these Kingdoms, and other peoples meeting with the European powers and explorers as Europe wanted to complete its map of Central Africa. Here the peoples and the country were wrapped up in the eddies of 19th and 20th century international politics.
    The Congolese voice in these is under-represented and the Congo was the catalyst for the colonial expansion of the late 19th Century and, at the behest of a new Superpower, the USA, became the personal property of one man. The borders were created through opportunistic expansion, geo-political negotiation and a Belgo-Arab war in central Africa. The DRC borders were never drawn up with reference to the people, the legacy of which still sits with us today.
    Under a Belgian King, the horrors the people were subjected to were the catalyst for a vast human rights movement spreading throughout Britain and America. Celebrities such as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Mark Twain helped force the Belgian King to cede the country to the Belgian State. The people living there experienced a unique development and supported the allies in World War 1.
    In World War 2 the Congo provided the Uranium for the Manhattan project and became an arena for spies in which the Allies and the Nazis vied for sole use of this in the as yet finished Atomic Bomb. All this against the backdrop of conflicted loyalties between some of the Belgian elite who sympathized with the Nazi cause and were willing, all too easily, to accept the Nazi Victory over the free world.
    After the allied victory the Congolese had shared the conflict with their European rulers, had seen their value, and a new confidence was born. Congolese music and culture flourished, and the colony achieved new highs in living standards. But in the winds of change decolonization spread rapidly throughout Africa. The Belgians struggled with the pace of change and panicking at unrest and conflicts in the rest if the continent effectively gave 6 months’ notice of exit after 52 years. The Congolese were independent without the history of rule of the country as a whole.
    Tribal loyalties challenged unity and the country was embroiled in the Cold War with its democratically elected leader, Patrice Lumumba, murdered in a murky agreement concocted in the global geopolitics and the desires of one region which had an eye on independence.
    This ushered in Mobutu, one of infamous dictators of post colonial Africa, who implemented a Kleptocratic form of governance which led to a fragile state. As the cold war ended and the support of the USA subsided the DRC unraveled and was weakened to external pressures. In the 1990’s the repercussions of the Rwandan genocide spread through the region and was a catalyst for the Central African War, fought largely in the Congo by rebel groups and neighboring states, in which 5 million people died.
    Regions of the country unwittingly hosted refuges and the fighting but a new President emerged after his predecessor and father was gunned down. He managed to gain the trust of the international community to help slow the hemorrhaging of the countries wealth to its neighbors.
    The country now stands as a cultural powerhouse through music and fashion, and the people watch as their government negotiates foreign aid from the West and development opportunities with the new superpower – China. With a young and rapidly growing population, a new sense of confidence, and still recovering from continuing conflict in the East the DRC stands looking at an uncertain future.
    The world has been involved in the countries past and will be in the future. But to understand this, and to start to make a difference, we must look at the road that got the DRC where it is today.
    Starting New Year 2021 this podcast will travel through this journey. Episodes will be released each fortnight starting January, after an initial burst of releases to provide the bedrock.
    Join us as we go follow a unique and hidden story.
    Welcome to the History of the Congo.

  • The Greatest Sin explores how foreign interference, lies, and malice has shaped Iran's history over the past century. 

  • Para servir y proteger! El podcast dedicado a las fuerzas policiales de todos los países.
    Los guardianes azules representan nuestra razón de vivir para proteger a quienes protegen. Somos el escudo que defiende el mundo y traza una línea clara entre el caos y el orden.

  • This is a brand new podcast from the Heritage Council and Partners, which aims to engage practitioners, stakeholders, civic leaders and community groups in a ‘collective discussion’ on the key issues facing our town centres today and to explore innovative and collaborative solutions at a local, regional, national and international level.

     

    A Podcast for the CTCHC Programme is much-needed in Ireland as the recent Covid-19 pandemic has had an enormous impact on our town centres and has created a ‘cultural shift’ in patterns and trends in relation to how we live and consume. In addition, the CTCHC Programme research has clearly demonstrated that many of our town centres were struggling before the pandemic. At the same time, the pandemic has also presented significant opportunities for small towns to attract people who can now work from home using Wi-fi – hence, reducing their daily commute and enhancing their overall quality of life.

Hear from special operations personnel like Navy SEALs, Army Green Berets, Army Rangers, Marine Raiders, Air Force Special Operators, pilots, medics, communicators, and more! Join our hosts, USSOCOM Senior Enlisted Leader Greg Smith and Green Beret Sgt. Major Matt Parrish, as they speak with special operations guests, past and present, about their experiences.

    SOFcast is the U.S. Special Operations Command official podcast where we harness the power of storytelling to connect you directly to thought-provoking and unique perspectives from our force. The Special Operations Command Enterprise consists of special operations personnel and enablers from across all of the military services and this podcast is a rare opportunity to hear their stories directly from those that lived them!

    USSOCOM comprises some of the best leaders in the world and SOFcast highlights and connects these leaders’ stories and lessons learned to our worldwide audience. SOFcast gives the Special Operations community a place to share authentic stories and adventures to make us better, safer, and more effective. Sharing our unique perspectives and experiences creates a distinct opportunity to shape current and future SOF through conversations. We believe that leadership is critically important at all levels, throughout every element of SOF and that leadership can be honed through hearing and understanding the trials and triumphs of others.

    BONUS EPISODES - every few episodes our hosts will welcome a guest for a special “Shots from the Field” episode. These episodes feature real questions from SOF members about real issues within our force. Our panelists have 15 minutes per topic to give real in-depth answers that go beyond the Command talking points. These episodes are filled with back-and-forth debate and argument from the “devil’s advocate” side in order to get to the heart of some really controversial and relevant current issues. If you have a topic you’d like to hear discussed, please leave a comment!

    This is the official special operations podcast. These are our stories. New episodes released every two weeks.

  • “Voci dalla Farnesina”, il nuovo canale podcast del MAECI in collaborazione con l’ANSA


    Viene inaugurato oggi "Voci dalla Farnesina", il nuovo canale podcast del Ministero degli Affari Esteri e della Cooperazione Internazionale in collaborazione con l’Agenzia ANSA.

    Ogni episodio racconterà, con le voci di coloro che lavorano al Ministro degli Esteri e nella vasta rete di Ambasciate, Consolati e Istituti di Cultura, l’operato della Farnesina in Italia e nel mondo, consentendo così uno sguardo “dietro le quinte” sull’attività della Farnesina: politica estera, cooperazione allo sviluppo, assistenza ai connazionali in difficoltà, emissione di visti turistici e d’affari, ma anche commercio internazionale, promozione del Made in Italy e molto altro.

    Quali sono gli strumenti economici che la Farnesina mette in campo per i connazionali all’estero in difficoltà per effetto della pandemia?
    Cosa fa il Ministero degli Esteri per promuovere la lingua e la cultura italiane all’estero attraverso la propria rete diplomatica e degli Istituti di Cultura?
    In che modo la cooperazione italiana allo sviluppo sta rispondendo alla crisi globale causata dalla pandemia per favorire il raggiungimento degli Obiettivi di Sviluppo Sostenibile (SDGs)?
    Cosa fanno i Consolati italiani per assistere i nostri connazionali in stato di fermo o arresto all’estero?

    Questi saranno alcuni dei temi che ogni settimana saranno affrontati all’interno delle puntate podcast.
    Si comincia oggi con la puntata “zero”: un dialogo tra il Segretario Generale del Ministero degli Esteri, Amb. Elisabetta Belloni, e il Direttore dell’Agenzia ANSA, Luigi Contu, per raccontare obiettivi e contenuti di questo nuovo progetto editoriale, che cerca di rispondere alla domanda “cosa vuol dire diplomazia” e quale impatto l’attività del Ministero degli Esteri abbia sulla vita delle persone e sulla tutela e promozione degli interessi dell’Italia nel mondo.

  • Welcome to “Spilling Chai” with Anushay & Friends. You may know Anushay Hossain as the Bangladeshi-American cable news commentator who debates toxic masculinity with Tucker Carlson on Fox News or maybe you’ve read her articles on CNN about toxic white supremacy.

    While Anushay may be a pro at giving her opinion and analysis on the headlines, something you don’t get to hear her do is ask the questions and talk about something other than the news.

    This podcast, “Spilling Chai” is about conversations. Anushay wants to feel inspired, and radio is such a great medium to have really in-depth conversations and to take the time to have them.

    In this show, Anushay is going to be talking to brilliant writers, passionate activists, and amazing artists and she wants you to join us!

    “Spilling Chai” is also a PSA on behalf of all Brown people that in most of Asia and the Middle East, chai is not a latte. Instead, it’s the best kind of tea and on this podcast, we are all about spilling it.

    So pour your cup and pull up a seat!
