Hot Spot Dispatches: NPR's Steve Inskeep Reporting from Damascus and Tehran

Earlier this month, Steve Inskeep was on the streets of Tehran reporting on Iran's presidential election. And right before that, the NPR "Morning Edition" host was inside war-torn Syria, where shelling and gunfire were audible on a daily basis. Inskeep joins Voice of America Director David Ensor to share accounts of the sights, sounds, and the stories he uncovered.
