#1269 Walking On Eggshells - Dean Yates

This was a fascinating chat with a great bloke, who has spent a significant portion of his career navigating terror, horror, chaos and tragedy, inflicted by both nature, and people. And it's fair to say that Dean Yates didn't escape unscathed. He was the ideal warzone correspondent: courageous, compassionate, dedicated. After years of facing the worst, including the Bali bombings and the Boxing Day tsunami, one final incident undid him. In July 2007, two of his staff members were brutally gunned down by an American helicopter in Iraq. What followed was an unravelling of everything Dean thought he knew of himself. His PTSD was compounded by his moral wound - the devastation of what he thought he knew of the world and his own character and beliefs. After years of treatment, including several stints inside a psychiatric facility, Dean has reshaped his view of the true meaning of life and thankfully, these days his family doesn't need to walk on eggshells. Enjoy.
