Hour 2:           We often hear reports about the conditions our soldiers face in Afghanistan, but what is life like for Afghan civilians, many of whom have never known a life without war? We’ll spend this hour with journalists Anna Badkhen [1] and Thorne Anderson [2]. The two have collaborated on many reporting projects over the years and Badkhen’s recent E-book from Foreign Policy, “Afghanistan by Donkey: One Year in a War Zone [3],” includes a portfolio of photographs by Anderson.
