Message From Host Jamie McGoldrick
Host Jamie McGoldrick lays out his goals for the podcast ahead of its launch date on January 24th. Jamie spent decades working in the humanitarian field, and while there’s been progress, he believes there needs to be change. Jamie’s looking for answers to the difficult questions facing the humanitarian world. Why are some of these crises now terminal? Why is it left to humanitarians to address chronic political failure? And is the humanitarian sector waking up to realize this new order and the increased pressures it has for humanitarian workers? He’ll explore these questions by speaking with humanitarians on the front lines of some of the world’s most challenging crises. These include humanitarian leaders - both national and international - decision makers, and policy advisers at both field and HQ level.
