This week, we’re joined by a special guest: freelance war correspondent Kenneth R. Rosen. Ken is working on a series of stories for WIRED about the reconstruction efforts in Syria. The first of Ken’s stories, “The Body Pullers of Syria,” was published on WIRED earlier this week. We talk to Ken about how he does his job, the tools he uses to report the stories of the men and women rebuilding the war-torn cities, and the methods he uses to stay safe in the field.
Read Kenneth Rosen’s story, “The Body Pullers of Syria.” Also see Ken’s packing grid photo. We’ll be back with the regular news roundup and recommendations next week.
