This week’s episode will feature two unique perspectives from the frontlines of international war.
In the first half of the show, you’ll hear from Retired US Admiral James Stavridis. Admiral Stavridis was the Supreme Allied Commander for NATO from 2009 to 2013, and he led NATO’s Operation Unified Protector during the 2011 military intervention in Libya.
In this talk, Stavridis discusses the US' role in a complex, quickly shifting international landscape.
And now to the second half of our program, featuring combat journalist Sebastian Junger.
In his newest project, “Hell on Earth: The Fall of Syria and the Rise of ISIS”, Junger documents the civil war by telling the stories of Syrians living through the chaos and rise of extremism, and who later attempt to escape the violence. Jung discusses his motivation for the project, and he reveals the inside story of the film.
