Have you ever wondered what your phone is made of? What kind of journey it made before reaching your hands?

In the last two episodes of our podcast series on the Democratic Republic of Congo, we’ll explore conflict minerals and supply chains.

The DRC is a country with a massive abundance of mineral resources. This should be a blessing, but it has also proved to be a curse – for many seek to secure these minerals for their own economic advancement.

To get to the bottom of this issue, we’ll be talking to Sasha Lezhnev of The Sentry, who shares his expertise on supply chains, mineral extraction, and conflict in the DRC.

Welcome to the first two episodes of our podcast series on the Democratic Republic of Congo, the entirety of which has been researched, produced and edited by TCD Student Maria Salto Galdon. 

In episode one, we’ll journey into the history of the DRC, an intricate web of events that seem to have remained in the shadows but that as we will see, are very much connected, and are a direct result of the Western world’s destructive practices.

We will also briefly look at a particular point in history that Ireland and the Congo have in common.

In episode 2, we’ll be talking to Serge, a former Trinity College Dublin student and Congolese native, who will be telling us about his life both in the DRC and  Ireland.

Serge is also the singer in many of the background songs that feature in this series, so make sure to subscribe to his channel through the links in the episode description.
