Today's podcast focusses on Colombia. It is now over a year since the government ratified a peace deal with Farc rebels that had been rejected by a narrow majority in a referendum. Today, progress is stalling as the country faces into national elections. Many citizens still struggle to tolerate the normalisation of former guerilla fighters, and dozens of Farc members have been assassinated. To find out about the problems facing Colombia, Dave McKechnie talked to Rafael Pardo, Colombia's post-conflict minister, and Tom Hennigan who reports on Colombia for The Irish Times.
