Danny and Derek welcome back Tim Nunan, lecturer in global history at the Free University of Berlin, for the eighth episode on Afghanistan's history. They pick up at the end of the Obama administration, examining the Afghanistan War’s place in the American imagination, why the war was hardly discussed in the 2016 election, Abdul Rashid Dostum, Jalaluddin Haqqani and the Haqqani Network, the push for peace talks, Trump’s influence on the war, and the 2019 Afghanistan presidential election.
