Paula Penfold has wept beside children’s gravesites in Afghanistan, embraced a mother searching for her daughter in the wake of a typhoon in the Philippines, and relentlessly pursued justice for Teina Pora.

In her most recent documentary, Deleted, Paula and her team at Stuff Circuit investigated the persecution of the Uyghur peoples in China, and shared the heartbreaking stories of the New Zealanders whose family in Xinjiang have disappeared.

Over the course of this conversation with media chaplain Rev. Frank Ritchie, Paula touches on stand-out stories she’s told over her 30 year career in this high-pressure industry, and the impact each has had on both her personal and professional life.
