Being Nick Kristof

Welcome to the Humanosphere podcast, our weekly look at the world of global health and development. Tom and I begin with a discussion on the headlines – from the UN asking us to eat more bugs to the refusal of most American retailers to sign a pact improving worker safety overseas.

Our featured guest this week is Nick Kristof, a Northwest native (grew up on a farm in Yamhill, OR), prize-winning columnist for the New York Times and, for many, the voice of the humanitarian movement. Tom talked with him by phone earlier this week, before he spoke in Seattle.
