The last few weeks have been headline city as it relates to the US’s longest war -- the war in Afghanistan. A departure from the past 20 years, where the war received little to no press coverage, the past few weeks had many of us constantly at a loss for words and left with many questions as to how on earth we got to this place. Cue, this week’s episode where we were honored to be joined by Veteran and Congressional Candidate for NY-11, Brittany Ramos DeBarros. Brittany, in our conversation, walked us through the many realities of this war, from how we ended up there in the first place to what being on the ground actually was like, the corporate interests involved, and so much more. If you’ve had questions on Afghanistan, this is the episode for you.
