Show Notes:

It can be easy to take communication for granted. We are surrounded by text messages, e-mail, instant messaging… But when was the last time a message you sent was the difference in a life or death situation? It’s easy for us to take for granted the power of the communication tools at our disposal. On a recent trip to Colombia, freelance journalist Dawn Paley was able to see that power first hand, speaking with indigenous Colombian activists who have given birth to a media network meant to strengthen and protect their community.
