directed by Gregory J. Sinclair
Air Dates: September 24 and 25, 2008
Series co-creator Jason Sherman returns to Afghanada with an intense trilogy of episodes. Private Chuck Manson is assigned to work with a unit of American soldiers fighting in the Korengal Valley in North Eastern Afghanistan. What he discovers is another dimension of the war on terror as Battle Company fights the best armed, best trained insurgents back and forth across the Pakistan border. There's another aspect to Battle Company's war: they are going to travel across enemy lines to rescue one of their own, believed captured, but who they discover is still alive.

About The Show
Created by Greg Nelson, Adam Pettle, Andrew Moodie and Jason Sherman.
Afghanada gives us a grunts-eye perspective of the war in Afghanistan. 3 -1 Bravo is a Canadian Forces light infantry section fighting with NATO forces deep in the heart of the conflict. Every day, Sgt. Pat Kinsella (Jenny Young), Private Dean Donaldson (Paul Fauteux) and Private Lucas Manson (Billy Maclellan), confront the chaos and violence of life "outside the wire."
Based on actual events on the ground in Kandahar, each week's episode takes the listener on an intense and compelling auditory journey, an unadorned reflection of the very real life and death situations Canadian soldiers face every day in Afghanistan.
