I can't find the words for how impactful this podcast is. It's so brilliantly made, and is a very impartial look upon a very complex and difficult subject. What I ended up listening to was nothing like what I imagined this podcast to be. Josh Baker is quite possibly one my of my new favourite journalists, and the lengths and danger he went to in order to report this story is admirable. I have my own opinions about what happened, but all I'll say for now is I just hope those directly affected by this story are able to heal and recover from this.
This really was an excellent podcast surrounding a topic I can't believe I didn't know about. The journalist, Josh Baker, is charming, unbiased, and reminds me of a Jon Ronson or a little more serious Louis Theroux. He is extremely dedicated to his work and goes to crazy places (like war torn Syria and Kurdish prisons) to get the story. By the end, you're left with answers, sort of, but still aren't entirely sure what to believe and how to feel about it.
This was a fascinating story. It's amazing what reporters can do, just by seeking the answers to questions.
