Mathilde Bergeron (22) is living in the United States, in Louisiana. Mathilde studies her Master’s in Spanish, thanks to one thoughtful professor, an assistantship at the university and a scholarship. Without this help, Mathilde would not be studying in this pandemic.
How is Mathilde experiencing this global crisis in the U.S.? How has the Black Lives Matter movement influenced her view on the world?
Welcome to the podcast project “red telephone”, a title in some ironic-reminiscence to the hotline between Moscow and Washington during the cold war. A format, where I call people around the globe that I have met abroad.
Nevertheless, each of them has an individual, personal story to tell about this last pandemic year. This project wants to give each of them a voice. And as we can’t travel in real life, why not travel via phone calls? This is the podcast red telephone and I am Valérie Nowak, a freelance journalist and honoured to be your host. Grab yourself a tee, relax and sit down with us for a chat.
