this is an oral historyof public service in the hardest times

In each episode we interview a practitioner who has worked with extremely marginalised people for many years — in most cases amidst serious violence or political instability.

Guests have included human rights defenders, aid workers, diplomats, clinicians, and community organisers. The majority are from the global South.

We talk through career trajectories; successes and failures; experiences linked to race, class and gender; and self-care amidst extreme stress.

My name is Ian D. Quick — I’m a consultant who’s worked on organisational development & learning for the last twenty years, with most of this in highly fragile places. You can find more on that here.
