Global Voices’ Solana Larsen addresses the issue of who can best tell stories coming from abroad. GlobalPost’s Andrew Meldrum writes on his efforts to transform the reception of stories on Africa from “Who cares?” to “Who knew?” And former BBC reporter Maria Balinska on new approaches to storytelling that connect with and serve an audience (without being dumb!).
