4 segments
In today’s Underreported segment, we look at the recruitment of child soldiers in Nepal. Many children are being abducted and forced to fight in the war. We'll find out why children are being pressed into service, and explore what effect this could have on an entire generation of young Nepalis. Next, playwright Donald Margulies discusses his new play, Brooklyn Boy--a look at the everyday trials of a middle-aged Jewish man. Then, Ed Hotaling revisits the world of horse racing at the turn of the century, when black jockeys dominated the sport. In his latest book, Wink, he focuses on the successes and struggles of one especially talented jockey: Jimmy Winkfield. Finally, Patrick Radden Keefe uncovers the secretive world of global intelligence-gathering technology systems.
