Producer María Dios invites Greek journalist Jenny Tsiropoulou to discuss her work as a reporter and scriptwriter for a previous podcast episode, “From Ghost Towns to Vibrant Communities: The Musicians ex Machina experience“. The conversation centers around a unique music festival held in abandoned villages in Greece. Jenny explains that she chose to focus on Dimitris Mistakivis, a professional musician and social activist, as the main character for the music festival episode. However, concerns about infrastructure, health services, and social isolation in rural areas are raised. Jenny highlights the lack of support from local governments for cultural initiatives.
