What do a soldier, an aid worker and a refugee have in common? They all share the experience of war. And while one is an active participant, one seeks to heal its wounds and one deals with its impact, their personal, raw and oftentimes visceral stories are rarely heard. Rather, war is too often depicted as clean, precise, and distant. It occurs ‘over there’ and happens to ‘them’. The Voices Of War is a podcast with a simple vision—to bring to life the true costs of war, through the voices of those who have lived it. My first experience of war was during the siege of Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where, as a ten-year-old, the world I knew came apart. Not long into the war, I became a refugee in Germany where our life was precarious at best and outright dangerous at worst. Nearly four years later, my family was lucky to migrate to Australia, where I later joined the Army. Having served in Afghanistan and Timor Leste, I again saw the impact of war, except this time as a uniformed participant.
