Foreign Policy Playlist


Daily Vlogging the Syrian War

In this episode of Foreign Policy Playlist we suggest Vice News’ Source Material, a documentary podcast that uses footage taken by people as they lived through major historical moments. 

We spotlight the episode “Vlogging the Syrian War” which is based on video footage captured by Abdullah Jabbar, or AJ, as he documents his and his family’s life in Syria as the war unfolds around them. Our host, Foreign Policy’s Amy Mackinnon, sits down with Source Material’s creator and producer Peter Lang-Stanton about how he and his team approach the production of the podcast.
