79) How to Drag a Body

Judith Matloff is a seasoned war corespondent who, among other things, teaches future journalists how to survive in dangerous situations. In todays episode, I ask her how to spot landmines, what's the best course of action is for the people of Ukraine, and a number of other important questions. And yes, how to drag a body.

Bio: Judith Matloff teaches crisis  reporting at Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism. She trailblazed  safety training for women and media organizations around the world,  helping hundreds of journalists survive an increasingly dangerous  world.

Over 40 years as a journalist, she  has covered top international stories including Rwanda’s genocide,  apartheid and the rise of Vladimir Putin. Her essays have appeared in The New York Times Magazine, Forbes, the Financial Times, The Los Angeles Times and The Wall Street Journal. Earlier in her career, Matloff headed the Moscow and Africa bureaus of the Christian Science Monitor and she spent a decade reporting for Reuters from various countries.

Matloff consults for leading  organizations around the world, and has pioneered protocols for digital,  gender and physical security. Clients have  included NBC, the United Nations, the Society of Professional  Journalists, Doc Society, Magnum, the State Department, the Knight  Center for Journalism in the Americas, the International Women’s Media  Foundation and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists.  Her training company, Security Rules LLC, offers workshops for a wide  variety of dangerous situations.

Matloff’s latest book, How to Drag a Body and Other Safety Tips You Hope to Never Need, shares expert advice for nearly every conceivable peril. She earlier published No Friends but the Mountains, which drew a link between geography and conflict; Fragments of a Forgotten War, about Angola’s civil war; and Home Girl, which chronicled a Harlem street run by a drug gang.
