Walking from the Greek border to Gevgelija, Macedonia.

In November, independent radio producer Scott Carrier traveled overland from Copenhagen, Denmark, south to the Greek island of Lesbos. His journey traced the trail taken by refugees fleeing conflict in Central Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa. Carrier wanted to talk to the refugees themselves and find out why they left their homes, where they were going, and what they thought their futures would be like. He joins us Tuesday share what he learned about the European refugee crisis.

Scott Carrier is a writer and independent radio producer. His podcast is called Home of the Brave, and he produced a series of episodes for it that document his journey along Europe’s refugee trail. The following links will take you to those stories, in chronological order:
