Written by Brendan Gall
Directed by Gregory J. Sinclair
Sergeant Casper Jakes returns home to Guelph, still grieving for Hannah Crowe, and having become addicted to ativan as a means of softening the edge of his anxiety. But his addiction is growing worse, underscored by alcohol dependancy. And the effects are beginning to manifest themselves...from hallucinations to uncharacteristically erratic behaviour. A chance phone call to Lt. Petrovksy results in a sudden, last ditch intervention to save Jakes from self-destruction.

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.
