Media Roundtable: The Future of Afghanistan & Brazil's Odebrecht Corruption Scandal

Sep 13, 2019

On this edition of Your Call’s Media Roundtable, we’ll go to Kabul, Afghanistan to discuss coverage of US negotiations with the Taliban, and the ongoing violence against the civilian population. With so much attention back on Afghanistan, where are the voices of Afghans almost 18 years after the United States invaded in response to 9/11?

Later in the show, we'll discuss an investigation led by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists about a vast bribery operation by Odebrecht, the largest construction company in Latin America.

 

Guests:

Ali Latifi, freelance reporter based in Kabul

 

Sasha Chavkin, investigative reporter at The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists

Kevin Hall, chief economics correspondent and senior investigative reporter at McClatchy Newspapers
