What will the normalization of Colombia-Venezuela diplomatic relations mean for Venezuelans along the border? This episode of the Venezuela Briefing Podcast features interviews with human rights defenders, humanitarian workers, and journalists in the Venezuelan western border states of Tachira and Zulia, recorded during an August visit by WOLA’s Geoff Ramsey. They paint a complicated picture of life along the border, and share how conditions in the interior of the country differ from the capital city in Caracas.

Special thanks to WOLA Program Assistant Sienna Woo for her help with the voiceovers, and in putting this episode together.
