Posted on Jul 28, 2012

This week on Truthdig Radio in association with KPFK: Ed Girardet has been reporting from Afghanistan for 30 years and he predicts things will fall apart. Also: new infections of HIV among young, gay black men up by 48 percent; one of the architects of financial deregulation wants a do-over; and sportswriter Mark Heisler goes out on a limb looking for answers.

Listen to the show:
