'Stories From the Syrian Frontline:' NPR Reporter Shares Experiences From Arab Spring

NPR Foreign Correspondent Deborah Amos is a familiar voice to KUNC listeners. Most recently she’s been reporting from Syria, with more than a dozen trips to that country during the current conflict.

She’s back in the U.S. -- for now -- and over the next two days will be speaking with Colorado college students, sharing her insights and experiences from covering the Arab Spring.
