Around the World

I will soon celebrate one year at the helm of the Talk Radio News Service bureau at the United Nations.

Over the past year my job has lead me around the world to observe some historic events, such as the Euromaidan protests in Ukraine and Crimea, the refugee crisis stemming from the Syrian civil war, as well as to sit in on U.N. climate and housing negotiations in Poland and Colombia.

Select dispatches can be read/viewed below:

More recently, I launched a daily foreign news podcast—"The World in 2:00"—designed for syndication across the Talk Radio News Service network and the enjoyment of casual news listeners on iTunes and other audio platforms. 

Imagine a BBC World Service bulletin for an American audience, with a dose of pub night trivia thrown in for good measure.
