Serial Discussion & Happy Hour

Posted by WHYY on February 15, 2016

Join us for a happy hour discussion about the second season of Serial.

Season two of the incredibly popular podcast focuses on unpacking the story of Bowe Bergdahl, the lone American prisoner of war from the Afghanistan and Iraq Wars who walked off his base in 2009. His capture and subsequent release made international headlines. But what happened during his five years with the Taliban? This season of Serial has been digging in to investigate the controversial case.

Award winning NPR News correspondent Quil Lawrence will host a discussion about Serial’s second season, and we’ll learn more from a panel of experts about Bergdahl’s capture, the status of his case, military law and the experience of captivity.

Then we’ll open up the discussion to you to share your theories, thoughts and questions.

Join the conversation early by using #serialwhyy on Twitter and Facebook.

Featured panelists:

  • Josh Fattal, Former Iran Hostage
  • Malcolm Nance, Veteran U.S. Intelligence Officer
  • Rachel Van Landingham, Military Law Expert and Professor of Law
  • Chris Lombardi, Author of I Ain’t Marching Anymore
