How We Got Here #16

Something different on the podcast this week–

The World’s Clark Boyd tells us about a new graphic novel The Photographer: Into War-Torn Afghanistan With Doctors ThePhotographer_CoverWithout Borders.  It’s the tale of Didier Lefèvre, a photojournalist who accompanies a Doctors Without Borders mission into Afghanistan in 1986.  The book is a mesmerizing combination of graphic novel, photojournalism and reported memoir that takes you back in time and deep inside the culture and landscape of a particular region of Afghanistan during the Soviet occupation.  As Clark and I discuss in the podcast, sometimes a graphic novel makes for a more powerful history lesson than any number of academic tomes.   Here are lots of ways to listen:
