Mozhgan Moarefizadeh is stuck in Jakarta, living without rights — but with a yappy dog named Bella. With journalist Nicole Curby, she brings you into the lives of refugees like her, who are trapped on Australia’s new borderline, in Indonesia.
The Wait is a five-part podcast series that grew out of Nicole and Mozhgan’s friendship.
