In this week’s episode of Task & Purpose Radio — “The Stuff Of Conspiracy Theories” — Lauren Katzenberg, James Weirick, and Nate Bethea review Sarah Koenig’s recent interview on The New Yorker Radio Hour and her refusal to discuss the terms under which Bowe Bergdahl’s agreed to talk with Mark Boal. Does the audience deserve more transparency?
Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.
On Dec. 24, the podcast Serial released the latest episode of its second season, which is focused on the disappearance of Bowe Bergdahl and the implications of his decision to walk off his Afghan outpost in 2009.
We just released episode two of Task & Purpose Radio, a new podcast hosted by managing editor Lauren Katzenberg with Marine veteran James Weirick and Army veteran Nate Bethea. Each week, they discuss the Bowe Bergdahl case and how the story is being told through the second season of the podcast Serial.
We’re excited to launch Task & Purpose Radio, a new podcast hosted by our managing editor, Lauren Katzenberg. The podcast will track and follow the story of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the lone prisoner of war from Afghanistan, who was recovered via a prisoner exchange with the Taliban in 2014, five years after walking off his base.
