1: I fear for my safety – Carlos Conde, Human Rights Watch Philippines


In our first episode we speak to the brilliant and brave Carlos Conde, an investigative journalist specialising in human rights in the Philippines, about what it’s like to do this work in one of the world’s deadliest countries for journalists. Before joining Human Rights Watch, Carlos worked as a journalist for 20 years, mainly for The New York Times. His job has taken him into some dicey and traumatic situations, from interviewing state-sponsored assassins to children who’ve seen their entire families gunned down in front of their eyes. In this deeply personal interview, Carlos reveals what it takes to do a job where the threats to his safety are constant.
