'VICE's Isobel Yeung & Gianna Toboni Share Unimaginable Stories From the Field

The correspondents share their story about storytelling with us.

VICE is not your traditional news source. HBO’s Emmy-winning docu-series looks to provoke without qualms, and at its heart are the correspondents who narrate each tale. Isobel Yeung and Gianna Toboni are two such correspondents – and producers – who cover political and cultural reports alike. Amidst the social media haze it’s not easy to lull millennials.

Yet both have done it, time and time again. Isobel started her career in China at a state-run TV network, and Gianna at ABC News. Both ended up at VICE and have maintained all along that their stories should resonate – not their gender. They’re simply “reporters who happen to be women.”

From interviewing rape perpetrators in the DRC, to living in warn-torn Syria, the reporters relay the tales that outweigh our usual material. Hear their accounts up-close in our interview above and learn more about VICE here.
