RCI | English : The Nagorno-Karabakh Knot

  • Publisher: RCI | English
  • Total Episodes: 5

Welcome to the Nagorno-Karabakh Knot podcast series by Radio Canada International. This podcast series examines the roots of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, its impact on the Armenian and Azerbaijani societies as well as the larger region, and ways of resolving it. As part of this series, Radio Canada International spoke with Canadian, Armenian, Azerbaijani, Russian and Turkish experts and journalists to get insights into the longest running and bloodiest conflict to emerge from the ruins of the former Soviet Union. While thanks to another Russian-brokered ceasefire the latest bout of fighting has stopped for now, the conflict is far from over and the prospect of peace between Armenians and Azerbaijanis appears as uncertain as ever. This latest war has created new facts on the ground for Armenians and Azerbaijanis, new victors and vanquished, and has opened new wounds while the old ones have yet to heal. There are also new players with boots on the ground – Russia and Turkey. However, their strategic rivalry in the region adds new strands to the fiendishly complex knot of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

  • Publisher: Tablet Magazine
  • Total Episodes: 9

Before CNN and Fox News, before shock jocks and powerful pundits, there was Father Charles Coughlin, an ambitious priest who invented political talk radio as we know it, brought down one president and crowned another, and was himself at one point considered the most powerful man in America. He was also a rabid anti-Semite who wrote fan mail to Mussolini and cheered on Hitler, and who used his enormous platform to rail against the cunning international bankers who robbed decent, Christian Americans of their hard-earned dollars. This limited-run podcast, hosted by Detroit journalist Andrew Lapin and produced by Tablet Studios, weaves together archival materials and dramatic recreations as well as interviews with radio hosts, historians, and others to tell the story of Father Coughlin’s rise from humble beginnings in a sleepy Canadian town to the pinnacle of influence, a cautionary tale, very much still relevant today, of how an unscrupulous bigot can manipulate mass media to spread hate and gather much too much political power.
