Matthew Schrier is the author of The Dawn Prayer (Or How to Survive in a Secret Syrian Terrorist Prison): A Memoir. It covers the seven months Matthew spent held hostage in Syria by Al Qaeda. It is a page-turner!
Our interview covers the story of his capture, how his life gave him the skills he needed to survive, and the experience of turning this nightmare into a fantastic book. The first 11 minutes of the interview stay clear off spoilers, and the rest of the episode only reveals a few minor details.
