This is What a Generation Sounds Like: Andrea

A story about being incredibly sure you’re right about something, and then realising you weren’t.

In Cyprus, the lines drawn by the frozen conflict have left everlasting traces on people’s identity, the way they relate to each other, and against each other. However, it is harder than it seems to point fingers at who bears responsibility for it all.

The episodes are all sound-rich audio productions, coupled with a visual interpretation of the story, merged into a new concept: a Visual Podcast. Starting off with an audio-first story, we combine it with visuals that serve as a guide, accompanying the story through another lens.
