Episode 36 – Sim Chi Yin

In this podcast for Multimedia Week, Sharron Lovell speaks with Sim Chi Yin about crossing the lines between journalism and advocacy.

Chi Yin recently published her four year story following a Chinese gold miner suffering with the lung disease silicosis, caused by years of inhaling coal dust.
