More news and views from Ukraine will reach the English-speaking world every week thanks to the efforts of a Western professor.
In association with Hromadske Radio in Kyiv, Ukraine, Western professor Marta Dyczok recently launched Ukraine Calling, a weekly English-language podcast on Ukraine’s current affairs. The half-hour weekly show reviews the week’s top stories and looks to the week ahead with a goal of explaining the issues through interviews with decision-makers, opinion-makers and ordinary people.
On the most recent episode, Dyczok spoke with Canadian International Trade Minister Chrystia Freeland, Ukraine Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, Ukraine Ambassador to Canada Andriy Shevchenko and Kyiv Mohyla Business School professor Mykhailo Wynnyckyi.
Dyczok, cross-appointed to Political Science and History, specializes in international politics and history, with a focus on East Central Europe and Eurasia, and specifically Ukraine. Her research interests are on the politics of history, mass media, migration, post-communism and the Second World War.
Created by a handful of journalists led by Andriy Kulykov, Hromadske Radio, one of the first independent platforms in Ukraine, broadcasts over the air as well as via web-radio. Hromadske Radio was featured in Dyczok’s latest book, Broadcasting through Information Wars with Hromadske Radio.
