Travelogue: 'Jewels of the Aegean' with Elfrida Nord
JWAC superstar Elfrida Nord will tell us all about her very recent cruise, starting and ending in Istanbul, Turkey. The experience highlighted ancient history and the interplay between Christians, Jews, Muslims and mythologies from around 300 BCE to present. She notes that, despite proximity to Syria, there was a puzzling lack of any sign of refugees, nor any indication of regional violence.
'Turkey: Caught in the Middle in the Middle East' with Sinan Ciddi
Wednesday | Feb 24th | 5:00 | KTOO Studios
Sinan Ciddi was born in Turkey and educated in the United Kingdom. He is an expert on Turkish domestic politics and foreign policy.
