An Incredibly Powerful Piece of Work

I had to MAKE myself stop listening since there were only 12 episodes. I limited myself to an episode a day and it was a highlight of the day every time. The show and the reporting was extremely interesting and thorough and sincere and it gave such an honest glimpse into an organization that has so much swirling around it at all times. I enjoy this podcast bc you get to see the humanity on multiple sides of this human tragedy. Isis-an incarnation of evil or a society of people dealing w/great injustice and suffering led to believe that this is their only chance to fight for their place in the world—or somewhere in between? I’m sure the amount of work that went into this piece can’t be nearly summed up in 12 episodes and I certainly hope it’s not the end of this fantastic show.
