Host Marcia Franklin talks with author and New Yorker magazine writer Philip Gourevitch about the stories he's covered, including the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, and the abuses at Abu Ghraib prison. The two discuss what lessons Gourevitch thinks can be learned from the events, and why he is often drawn to subjects that make others look away.
