🎧 “Caliphate,” Chapter 8: The Briefcase | New York Times

Listened to “Caliphate,” Chapter 8: The Briefcase by Rukmini Callimachi, Andy Mills from New York Times

We found a trove of secret documents after Mosul fell. It led us to the mother of an ISIS official.

I love how this story really humanizes what is going on here compared with the soundbite snippets we hear from the US President at the moment. Things are far more complex and human, than they would seem. And what a fantastic little story this particular episode makes on so many levels. Mothers/sons, wealth/poverty, religion/bureaucracy, journalism/mystery and so much more.

  1. The opening of episode 10 goes exactly to the simplifications that Trump makes. Like he would say, “SAD!”
