Something different on the podcast this week! I recent sat down with a number of officials at the United Nations as part of Talk Radio Day 2014. This is an annual event hosted by the United Nations Foundation in which talk radio hosts from around the country broadcast from the UN for the day. I spoke with about a dozen officials, both from the United Nations secretariat and from member states. Each of the interviews focuses on topical issues related to the work of my very interesting guests.
Here's the first batch of interviews. Look out for part two in the near future.
John Ashe, President of the General Assembly
Courtenay Rattray, Jamaica's Ambassador to the UN
Le Hoai Trung, Vietnam's Ambassador to the UN
Kurt Chesko, UN Mine Action Service
Andrew Hudson, UN Development Program
Chris Whatley, United Nations Association of the USA
