48:00  Natalie Carney Gerçik, International Journalist working in Turkey 
Journalist Natalie Carney will be in Vancouver next week for a public discussion: Notes from the Field concerning the refugee experience. Tuesday 6pm at SFU. And we fortunately have a preview conversation with her here today talking journalism and covering Turkey at war.
“Originally from Vancouver, I left for the Middle East at the turn of the century. As a journalist I was intrigued by their fiery history, culture and politics. Yet sadly, 16 years later, its people are still suffering from the erosion of these very things. The instability that has devastated the region over the years has forced millions of people to flee – leaving their lives behind in order to save them. I have had the honour of meeting some of them. And while I have heard heart wrenching stories I have also witnessed unimaginable love and support. Join me as I share THEIR stories and their journey from one life to another and introduce you to the mothers, fathers and children battered by the will of others and whose only dream now is for a safe place to live.”
