Listen

When you think about the Taliban, poetry is probably not the first thing that comes to mind. But last week a collection of Taliban poems was released in the U.K. Felix Kuehn is one of the editors of the collection and he spoke with guest host Jim Brown about the book and the controversy it's ignited.


You'll also hear from David Rohde, an American journalist who was kidnapped and held captive by the Taliban for seven months, and heard their poetry first hand.

 

A much longer edition of our interview with Felix Kuehn can be heard HERE.
