In her book, Branding Humanity: Competing Narratives of Rights, Violence, and Global Citizenship, Amal Fadlalla writes about the Save Darfur movement and how it gained an international following. We bring her onto the show this week for a conversation about her work and her expertise in Sudan.

In the news wrap, Kim and Rachel talk about global climate change, more updates from the Tigray region of Ethiopia, the protests in Eswatini, and more. Plus, we recommend a new podcast for our listeners!
