An oral history of working for social good in hard times, and tough places.


This is a podcast about how we move forward when things fall apart, in armed conflict and political crisis.

In each episode I interview a practitioner doing interesting, impactful work. We talk career trajectories, successes and failures, and lessons learned along the way.

The goal is pretty simple: to share practical ideas and inspiration. Guests so far include aid workers, human rights defenders, emergency clinicians, and more to come.

My name is Ian D. Quick — I’m a consultant who’s worked on stabilisation & recovery for the last fifteen years. I’m energised by fresh perspectives and diverse thinking, and want to make sure they get the audience they deserve.
