But even through war, one thing that never seemed to stop was the shipping of goods through the Magdalena River.
This river is an ever-changing fluid highway of bends, sandbars, and channels that can only be navigated by the expert hands of the captains and crews of Colombia's barge convoys.
It is a world dominated by men, where strangers are rarely permitted.
Please join us as Professor Kevin Lewis O’Neill sits down with Professor Austin Zeiderman to discuss his trip aboard a shipping barge along the Magdalena River.
This podcast is sponsored by the Centre for Diaspora and Transnational Studies at the University of Toronto.
Our Host is Professor Kevin Lewis O'Neill.
Between, Across, & Through is produced, edited, and mixed by Ianeke L Romero
