June 19th: Blowback



Welcome to the Migrant Crisis Podcast, our second election and terrorism episode in a row.

This time round, Northern Ireland correspondent Mike Meehall Wood explains to us the Democratic Unionist Party and why the English Tories have made an alliance with them.

After that we speak to Muddassar Ahmed, an interfaith organiser and communications expert, about how terrorism shapes and damages the lives of Britain’s substantial Muslim community.

*Please note, these conversations were recorded before the attack at Finsbury Park mosque and before the full horrific extent of the Grenfell fire was clear to us.

The Migrant Crisis Podcast

The Migrant Crisis Podcast seeks to cover the ongoing situation involving migration in Europe and beyond. We give a global outlook on events, provide expert analysis of policy decisions (and explain why they matter) and attempt to wade through the media narratives around migration to get the root of the issues. We are unashamedly pro-migrant and pro-refugee, and we always seek to let migrants share their experiences in their own words. We are based in Berlin and London, but our network of contacts is spread wide over the world, from Sydney to Syria and Sao Paulo.
