Intimate and personal dispatches from two very different battlefields: A small town in the Syrian war. And the U.S. opioid epidemic. Each came from a DIY radio outfit. (Okay, one’s a podcast.)

This episode left us feeling very emotional about the power of radio in a small Syrian town.

Act 1 feels like reading the diary of someone whose life is changing completely.

@jangiesen it was such a sad story. Part 2 too!
