In the news media, war gets more headlines than peace, conflict more airtime than reconciliation. And in our polarized world, reporting on conflict in a way that frames conflicts as us vs. them, good vs. evil often serves to dig us in deeper. On Making Peace Visible, we speak with journalists and peacebuilders who help us understand the human side of conflicts and peace efforts around the world. From international negotiations in Colombia to gang violence disruptors in Chicago, to women advocating for their rights in the midst of the Syrian civil war, these are the storytellers who are changing the narrative.

Making Peace Visible is hosted by Boston-based documentary filmmaker Jamil Simon.

Excellent Podcast - And Crucial

Media literacy is a fundamental issue these days, at the very core of our ability to address, well, anything else! This podcast does a great job of encouraging and expanding media literacy, exposing listeners to worlds ignored by the news media, an effective way of counteracting the "if it bleeds-it leads" mentality we've been subjected to for decades.

Should be required listening!

What a vital concept and brilliant delivery here. I can’t think of a more timely and poignant subject for a podcast. I’ve listened to three episodes thus far and I’m excited to hear every one of them. I plan to listen up and pass it on. Many thanks to the producers of this gem.
