"War Torn: Stories of Courage, Love, and Resilience" (Encore Presentation)

war-torn-book.jpg
Aired on Tuesday, May 30th.

On this edition of ST, we listen back to a broadcast from late February. At that time, our guest was psychologist and author Kenneth E. Miller, who has been working with war-affected communities since 1991 as a researcher, clinician, organizational consultant, and filmmaker. Miller joined us to discuss his then-new book, "War Torn: Stories of Courage, Love, and Resilience." With 200 million people affected by armed conflict or genocide worldwide today, refugees are appearing in record numbers; indeed, not since World War II have so many war-affected migrants been relocating around the globe. Miller's book takes us beyond the headlines and directly into the lives of civilians caught up in the destructive power of warfare and its aftermath -- in Afghanistan, Iraq, Bosnia, Guatemala, and Sri Lanka. Please note that you can access a free, on-demand audio-stream of this interview here.

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
