Retired CNN/ABC News/Reuters photojournalist Stephan Patterson shares stories from his career spent in the Middle East, including his meeting with Yasser Arafat, The Bosnian War, and his recent trip to Vietnam. Stephan shares his thoughts from the ground on how Vietnam has been coping with the COVID-19 pandemic compared with his experience returning to the United States. I'm very honored to have Stephan as a guest on the podcast and hearing some of his legendary stories for the first time including his meeting with the former Chairman of the PLO Yasser Arafat, and his close encounter with Bosnian Serb military commander Ratko Mladic, who was later found guilty of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide by The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. Stephan recently visited Vietnam just as quarantining, health declarations, and eventually social distancing had been excelerated. Stephan shares his thoughts on his personal experience being tested for COVID-19, travel within the country, and his eventual return to the United States. Thanks so much for listening.
