A podcast with a simple vision—scratching below the simple narratives of war

About The Voices of War Podcast

‘The Voices Of War’ is guided by a simple vision—to scratch below the simple narratives of war.

To do this, I speak with refugees, soldiers, negotiators, academics, development workers, and anyone else whose life has been shaped by war, be they a survivor, a perpetrator, a mediator, a student, or a healer of it.

Ultimately, I want to make it lucid that neither war nor peace is a foregone conclusion. Both are a product of upstream causes that make one or the other more likely. Understanding and embracing this fact is critical when trying to find moral and ethical solutions to our many local, regional, and global challenges.

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ War through a different lens

Maz has created a though provoking look at war. The cross section of guests each bring their own unique insights into war. The guests are balanced from victims to bystanders to active participants. Maz has a calm questioning technique which puts the guest at ease and seemingly wanting to say more about their experience and take on war. A refuge from Bosnia's civil war, Maz brings a knowledge of war to the interviews that brings out the best and helps you, the listener, gain a different perspective. War is not glory.

Great host with interesting guests, covering topics that are so often hidden from the public domain. Sobering insights that should make us ashamed for viewing the cost of life so cheaply.
