The uneasy issue of genocide is in the news. 

President Joe Biden on Saturday became the first U.S. President to call the killing of an estimated 1.5 million Armenians by the Ottoman Empire during WWI an act of genocide

Someone with a keen interest in the subject of genocide is Marko Dumancic, an associate professor of history at Western Kentucky University, who teaches courses on the subject. 

He's giving a talk on Monday, April 26, to the Owensboro Area World Affairs Council called, "Never Again, and Again, and Again: Debating and Recognizing Genocide in the 21st Century." 

He spoke to WKU Public Radio about whether the world has gotten any better over the decades at recognizing genocide as it's happening, and intervening.
