Conversations With Photojournalist Iason Athanasiadis and Writer D. Watkins

Mar 14, 2016

Iason Athanasiadis is a writer, photojournalist, and documentary filmmaker who has spent years covering the Middle East and Mediterranean Europe. He was in Hartford recently to speak to the World Affairs Council of Connecticut, and stopped by our studios to talk about journalism in conflict regions and the Syrian migrant crisis. This hour, we listen back to that conversation.

We also chat with award-winning writer D. Watkins. His debut essay collection The Beast Side: Living (and Dying) While Black in America will be spotlighted this week in a discussion at Hartford's Mark Twain House and Museum. We preview that event.
