Oct 19, 2016 With the election looming and the final debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump dominating the headlines, Celeste and John step back to focus on one of the greatest challenges the next president must face: dealing with war-torn Syria. Celeste speaks with Christina Psarra of the humanitarian aid group Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieresabout her work helping refugees and educating the public about their experience through MSF's traveling exhibition "Forced From Home." Next, former Senate majority leader and special envoy to the Middle East George Mitchell talks to John about if, how and when the wrenching conflict in Syria will end, potentially under the administration of a new president and United Nations secretary-general. This episode was produced by Alan Haburchak and Jon Marston.
