Episode 10: The Heroism of “The Cave”

Besieged civilians in war-torn Syria find hope and safety underground inside the subterranean hospital known as the Cave. Pediatrician and managing physician Dr. Amani Ballour has claimed her right to work as an equal alongside her male counterparts, doing her job in a way that would be unthinkable in the oppressively patriarchal culture that exists above. Joining host Stacey Wilson Hunt for a powerful conversation are both the subject of “The Cave,” Dr. Amani, and producer Sigrid Dyekjær.
