When we heard that Kiran Singh Sirah would be in New York City to deliver an address at the United Nations on International Day of Peace we seized the opportunity to meet him in midtown to record a podcast.

Should we be surprised that our conversation with a professional raconteur lasted an hour? Of course not. But we can assure you it's good listening. Sirah discusses the power of storytelling to build peace, slow climate change, soothe hospital patients, and placate rival gang members. He also shares some childhood memories of growing up a visible minority, a Sikh, in the South of England with parents who are refugees from Uganda. Have a listen.
