This year, we began using Conversation Six’s podcast platform to speak with experts and advocates on timely, critical topics that just couldn’t wait– whether it was real-time updates from the ground in Sudan, understanding the scope and impact of the Pegasus Project hacks, or taking a look at the Danish government’s intimidation campaign against Syrian refugees.
