Welcome to “Unbroken” The Podcast.
Healing Through Storytelling.
** Contains frank descriptions of hatred and ideologically based violence,
which may be disturbing to some listeners**
You will learn the incredible power of choice- in even the most extreme situations- and about the ongoing and expansive work and contribution Mike is doing to this day.
In this inaugural episode Madeleine talks to Mike Haines, whose brother was murdered by Isis in Syria. Rather than letting hatred take hold in his heart, he now does incredible work in the world. His story can’t fail to inspire you.
This campaign began after his brother David was murdered by ISIS in Syria in 2014. David was a humanitarian worker who whilst working with an NGO in Syria was captured and held for 18 months before being horrifically murdered and his death put on the internet.
Mikes incredible testimony cannot fail to show how he retained his humanity
and compassion, in a situation that would have broken many of us, and displayed
an incredible dedication to strong values not least honouring those values
by practising compassion and helping others rather than acting out of
revenge, which would have been quite understandable.

Hosted by Madeleine Black, the show will share stories of all the amazing people Madeleine has met on her own journey as an author/speaker and these stories will heal, motivate, inspire and bring hope when they share their wisdom and knowledge with her.
