Kim Barker, author of 'The Taliban Shuffle'
During this week's program, Kim Barker talks about her addiction to living in and reporting from war zones. She also reads a disturbing excerpt from the book, in which U.S. troops attempt to train police recruits in Afghanistan.
Bittersweet and unforgettable, Barker's book The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan is a record of her experiences, one that captures the absurdity and tragedy of our modern wars.
