On this edition of Peace Talks Radio, we’ll take a look at hostage negotiations. From criminal kidnappings to political pawns, hostage taking is a tragic business that captivates news readers and fills the plots of thrillers. But far from the dramatic scenes played out in movies and TV series, what is actually happening behind the scenes? Danielle Preiss is our correspondent. She talks with Thomas Olsson, a former hostage and now a humanitarian worker supporting safety for other humanitarian workers in high-risk locations. Also Sue Williams, a British hostage negotiator.
