How are ordinary Greeks dealing with a country spiraling out of control?

Caught between austerity and default, Greece remains in a highly fragile and difficult position. But out of the country’s chaos, “a tremendous outbreak of solidarity” has been born, says Nation correspondent Maria Margaronis in this episode of Nation Conversations with Roane Carey. Listen to the podcast to learn more about the initiatives Greeks are taking to help each other as well as the political shifts sparked by the crisis.

Read more about what’s happening in Greece in Margaronis’s article, “Greece in Meltdown,” from this week’s issue of The Nation.
