Syria's Lost Generation

Syria's Lost Generation

A decade of war in Syria has devastated the country and spawned one of the worst refugee crises in the world. Millions of Syrians fled for neighboring Lebanon and Jordan over the years, where they live to this day in makeshift camps. Millions more are displaced inside Syria. On March 9th, Foreign Policy, in partnership with World Vision International and the Syrian American Medical Society, brings you Syria’s Lost Generation, a six-part podcast about young Syrians who expected to live normal lives—going to school and making friends. Instead, they and their families were uprooted by war and traumatized by displacement. The series is reported from the region by journalist David Enders, who covered the Syrian war, and hosted by award-winning actor Liam Cunningham, who has worked with NGOs, including World Vision, to raise awareness for the plight of refugees.

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
