What #108 is all about

From 2022, Greece ranks the worst of all EU countries in the RSF ranking for press freedom. Why has it fallen from 70th to 108th out of 180 countries? What is happening to the media in the so-called birthplace of democracy? The first episode of the podcast series offers an informative retrospective for both international and Greek audiences, setting the context for a better understanding of the following episodes. Therefore, it is a short walk through all the issues that were the criteria for downgrading Greece’s position: surveillance, the murder of a journalist, SLAPPS, self-censorship and censorship, and economic manipulation.

Show notes:
For this episode, our guests are Antonis Kalogeropoulos, a communication and Media Lecturer at the University of Liverpool and Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Reuters Institute; Pavol Szalai, Head of the European Union & Balkans Desk at Reporters Without Borders; and Lamprini Papadopoulou, an assistant Professor at the Department of Communication and Media of the Kapodistrian University of Athens.

I never asked why my grandmother Mercedes speaks Russian, German, French and Spanish perfectly. Perhaps because I sensed that this why was marked by a delicate history… A history of childhoods without parents. A story of farewells, of reunions, of escapes and persecutions. A story marked by the history of 20th century Europe: the Spanish Civil War, the Second World War, and the Cold War. I never asked why. But now… I need to break that wall. I need to understand which parts of those wars, of those untold stories, still live in me. Join me on this journey through the past to understand where we came from, who we are, and where we are heading.
