We all know about the war in Syria, and most of us have an opinion about it, but very few of us have had the opportunity to sit in a refugee’s tent and listen to their story. Refugees’ Stories aims to change that.

Powerful and personal
Podcasts and personal storytelling are a perfect match and this episode is a beautifully produced blend of social history, journalism and personal story. I was moved by Khansa's experience, her story made more effective by the rich political and historical detail and the pitch-perfect narration of Jessica. This podcast is a spot where art, politics, human rights and journalism collide. Kudos to all involved. The hard work of production (archival content, pace, tone and placement of music) may not be evident to all, but it packed a punch!
