In this episode we are going to interview Mr. Argenis Angulo from Venezuela.
He is a journalist with a masters degree in communication and he has experienced the development of the press-, radio- and TV-landscape in his country first hand for over twenty years.
He will explain the huge challenges journalism is facing in Latin America. But optimistic as he is he will also point out the big opportunities that our current situation makes possible. One of his goals is making people aware of the important issues that lay beyond the purely political sphere, which seem to cover basically all daily news. This way he hopes for society to recognize how all its challenges and actions should revolves around personal responsibility. Especially in an environment of unstable or intransparent rule of law responsibility becomes an essential corner stone - not only for journalists!
