Collateral Repair Podcast

The Collateral Repair Podcast aims to share the stories of refugees living in Amman, Jordan. On a monthly basis, CRP invites you into an intimate space that will allow you to hear and understand refugees’ experiences in their own words. Each episode features an interview with a member of one of Jordan’s refugee communities, a supporting interview with a professional or employee at CRP, a Q&A in response to listeners’ questions, and a quick update of developments that month at CRP.

If you have comments or questions you would like to hear answered on air, please submit them to podcast [at] collateralrepairproject [dot] org.
