Stories with a Heartbeat is a new podcast produced by North Carolina Public Radio WUNC about the human condition in conflict. Stories with a Heartbeat is available on NPR.org, WUNC.org, iTunes, Google Play, and your podcast platform of choice. This podcast weaves together interviews, sound, music and poetic reflection into an engaging 15-minutes that will make you think. This is not the news hour, this is not a poetry show, this is what happens when you hold a radio mic in one hand, and a poet's pen in the other. This is Stories with a Heartbeat.
While listening to stories across the globe, Stories with a Heartbeat also actively works to shine light on the human condition in conflict by directly supporting medical relief organizations through advocay, awareness, and marketing efforts. We believe the doctor-patient relationship provides a uniquely powerful opportunity to explore the spectrum of the human condition in conflict. These stories, rooted in the agency of individuals, provide a point of connection in a world full of disconnects, and represent an opportunity to build bridges of understanding across lines of difference. This work is led by Mike Mallah and Will McInerney.
