What are some of the topics you will dedicate your research to in this podcast?
We are in the middle of the election campaign, so an important issue will be how the political campaign is financed in this country. We want to know what is happening in society, especially in those areas of Colombia. What is happening to the black community? What is happening with the indigenous community? What is happening to the immigrant population in Colombia?
For those of you who have followed your career as a journalist in radio, print and video, will you be known and what will be new in this new podcast?
They will find the conviction to give voice to almost all sectors and colors of Colombian society, as I have done all my life. Everything, including a new tool: the language of podcasts.
Have you faced the toughest investigations in your career?
In my journalistic life I have done a lot of research that I have done and for this I have had many tears, many regrets and a lot of satisfaction. But exposing all these veils of corruption that have taken over Colombian public life is probably one of the most difficult tasks. Journalism works to snatch away those who believe they are untouchables.
How do you see the state of investigative journalism in Colombia?
Investigative journalism in Colombia is also going through a deep crisis. I believe that these new platforms give us the opportunity to innovate ourselves through new formats and new languages such as podcasts.
What is the challenge of doing investigative journalism independently in the podcast format and on the new platform?
I think investigative journalism is the basis of all stories, of great reporting. Podcasts are the best platform to be able to make the best reports that other platforms do not allow in any way. This is a great opportunity and it gives me a lot of excitement.
