    Afghanistan has, for centuries, been at the center of the world. Long before the U.S. invasion — before the U.S. was even a nation — countless civilizations intersected there, weaving together a colorful tapestry of foods, languages, ethnicities and visions of what Afghanistan was and could be. The story of Afghanistan is too often told from the perspective of outsiders who tried to invade it (and always failed) earning it the nickname "Graveyard of Empires." In this episode, we're shifting the perspective. We'll journey through the centuries alongside Afghan mystical poets. We'll turn the radio dial to hear songs of love and liberation. We'll meet the queen who built the first primary school for girls in the country. And we'll take a closer look at Afghanistan's centuries-long experiment to create a unified nation.

    Just when you think things in America can't get any dicier, they do. And now is definitely a time to stay vigilant. And in this episode especially, we've got you covered.  Unless you've been sleeping on the beach for the last week, you know that the Feds delivered a search warrant at the Mar-a-Lago residence of former President Trump. And what you may not know, is that Trump supporters of all kinds, (and especially the most radical kind), are activated. They are threatening. And things in this country just got a whole lot hotter.  And we're digging into it. And doing what we always do–bringing light to contrast the heat. Paul rips into the true scope and scale of the rise in domestic threats. Highlights the helpers that are making a positive impact. And talks to a very special (returning) guest that rose to prominence precisely because he brought an approach and tone that was more about building things up, than burning them down.  Back in December of 2019, Secretary (then Mayor) Pete Buttigieg (@PeteButtigieg) joined this show for a huge, live-audience Episode 37 at the Classic Car Club in NYC. Buttigieg was on fire at the time, and nearing the peak of his Presidential run. And when the dust settled, he had landed in the cabinet and now serves as Secretary of Transportation–overseeing trillions of dollars in projects nationwide.  Buttigieg is one of the most important voices in American politics–and a leader that's had unique appeal for independent Americans. He's also the only combat veteran serving in the cabinet outside of the Secretary of Defense. In this new episode, you'll again get to hear Buttigieg asked questions he's never been asked before. He and Paul chop it up on everything from extremism in America, to parenthood, to Afghanistan, to pancakes vs waffles. And whether or not he will run for President again. It's a deep, fast and fun conversation that will give you insight into what's really in store for the future of our country.  Other shows focus on what's happening. This show focuses on what's next.  Every episode of Independent Americans hosted by Paul Rieckhoff @PaulRieckhoff) breaks down the most important stories–and offers light to contrast the heat of other politics and news shows. And talks to powerful and influential leaders of all political backgrounds. It's independent content for independent Americans. And all Americans.

    There's minor relief for American consumers after inflation slowed from 9.1% in June to 8.5% in July. The lower-than-expected figure is mainly due to decreasing fuel costs. Although prices are still running relatively high, President Joe Biden says it's a sign his economic strategy is working. Randall Kroszner, a former governor of the Federal Reserve Board, tells us what it means for the world's biggest economy. A year on from the Taliban's takeover of Afghanistan, several prominent economists, including Nobel Prize winner Joseph Stiglitz, are calling for funds to the country to be freed. He tells us why. Ed Butler speaks to the London company fighting to protect people's data privacy rights online. We also hear why seaweed is causing some unpleasant problems in Sierra Leone.

    Political division in the U.S. is worsening, with Americans segmenting further from each other and disagreement becoming more prevalent than unity. Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) has a goal to dispel this negativity and reflect what he believes is the true identity of America in his new book, “America: A Redemption Story.” Fox News' Dana Perino sits down with Sen. Scott on the Rundown to discuss some key stories he shares from his humble beginnings in South Carolina, the people who helped him in times of need, and his path to the U.S. Senate. He explains the negative impact of polarization and partisan media and the influence unity can have in building a more resilient nation.   August marks the one-year anniversary of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan after 20 years of war. The move was highly controversial as the Taliban quickly seized power in Kabul following the collapse of the Afghan government. As chaos escalated, a suicide bomber attacked the Hamid Karzai International Airport, killing U.S. service members and Afghan civilians alike. Zainullah "Zak" Zaki was able to flee the country. He served as a translator for Marine Major Tom Schueman during the war in Afghanistan. They join the Rundown to discuss their story from their new book, "Always Faithful," the Taliban's ongoing threats against Zak, and why they're tirelessly working to ensure secure U.S. citizenship for Zak.   Plus, commentary from co-host of Fox & Friends Weekend and Host of ‘The Will Cain Podcast' Will Cain.  Learn more about your ad choices.

    It looks like Serena Williams is leaving tennis. She's won 23 grand slam titles and four Olympic golds but has suggested it's time to move on. She's made the announcement in VOGUE, where she's said retirement - "causes a great deal of pain. I hate it." So she hasn't explicitly said she's giving up but she's given a large hint, saying she wants to focus on her family. Jessica Creighton speaks to former tennis player, Jo Durie and sports journalist Natasha Henry about the tennis icon. The Armed Forces are not reaching their targets in terms of recruiting women. The MOD is hoping to increase the proportion of women in the armed forces to 30% by 2030 but they have not met the target set for 2020. One of the barriers to change is thought to be visibility - new research has found the UK public knows little or nothing about female veterans. Lauren Godier-McBard led the research and Ria Jackson is an RAF veteran and founder of the blog The V word. BBC Afghan have a new radio programme called 'Women' which focuses on women and girls, especially those in rural areas, in Afghanistan and Pakistan. It's presented by Shazia Haya in Pashto, and Aalia Farzan in Dari who fled their home country last August when the Taliban retook control. It aims to inform, educate and empower its listeners. Faranak Amidi is the presenter of World Service's The Fifth Floor. She spoke to Shazia and Aalia. This spring more than two million people had registered to become potential blood stem-cell donors in the UK. That's regarded as a milestone by DKMS, which is the biggest stem cell-register in the UK. And it gives one mother in Northern Ireland some much-needed hope. Anne Greer's youngest son is in a critical condition in hospital. Daniel was fit and well, but in May after complaining of back pain that was coming and going, he was diagnosed with leukaemia. The family want people around the world to donate blood to see if their stem cells are a life-saving match for Daniel. Today we're going to be talking about women in the world of elite bodybuilding where in the UK alone there will be more than 200 female bodybuilding shows this year. Kate Bishop - co-creator of the book Core which includes 42 photos of ‘muscly women' doing what the book describes as 'subverting the archetype of femininity' and one of the bodybuilders in the book, Louise Plumb, discuss.

    The Fifth Act: America's End in Afghanistan by Elliot Ackerman A powerful and revelatory eyewitness account of the American collapse in Afghanistan, its desperate endgame, and the war's echoing legacy Elliot Ackerman left the American military ten years ago, but his time in Afghanistan and Iraq with the Marines and later as a CIA paramilitary officer marked him indelibly. When the Taliban began to close in on Kabul in August 2021 and the Afghan regime began its death spiral, he found himself pulled back into the conflict. Afghan nationals who had worked closely with the American military and intelligence communities for years now faced brutal reprisal and sought frantically to flee the country with their families. The official US government evacuation effort was a bureaucratic failure that led to a humanitarian catastrophe. With former colleagues and friends protecting the airport in Kabul, Ackerman joined an impromptu effort by a group of journalists and other veterans to arrange flights and negotiate with both Taliban and American forces to secure the safe evacuation of hundreds. These were desperate measures taken during a desperate end to America's longest war. For Ackerman, it also became a chance to reconcile his past with his present. The Fifth Act is an astonishing human document that brings the weight of twenty years of war to bear on a single week, the week the war ended. Using the dramatic rescue efforts in Kabul as his lattice, Ackerman weaves a personal history of the war's long progression, beginning with the initial invasion in the months after 9/11. It is a play in five acts, the fifth act being the story's tragic denouement, a prelude to Afghanistan's dark future. Any reader who wants to understand what went wrong with the war's trajectory will find a trenchant account here. But The Fifth Act also brings readers into close contact with a remarkable group of characters, American and Afghan, who fought the war with courage and dedication, and at great personal cost. Ackerman's story is a first draft of history that feels like a timeless classic.

    ABOUT MARINE MAJOR TOM SCHUEMAN, ZAINULLA ZAKI AND ALWAYS FAITHFULBand of Brothers meets Argo in this dramatic and heartfelt dual memoir of the war in Afghanistan told by two men from opposite worlds.Always Faithful entwines the stories of Marine Major Tom Schueman, and his friend and Afghan interpreter, Zainullah "Zak" Zaki, as they describe their parallel lives, converging paths, and unbreakable bond in the face of overwhelming danger, culminating in Zak and his family's harrowing escape from Kabul. In August of 2021, just days shy of the 20th anniversary of 9/11, America ended its longest war. The speed of the Afghanistan's fall was so stunning that thousands of Afghan citizens who had helped American forces over the course of two decades-and had been promised visas in return-were suddenly stranded, in extreme, imminent danger. As the world watched the shocking scenes of desperation at the Kabul airport in the final two weeks of August, Maj. Tom Schueman fought-both behind the scenes and through a social media campaign-to get his friend and former Afghan interpreter, Zak, out of Afghanistan before he and his family were discovered by the Taliban. When Zak and his family finally took off from the airport mere days before the US left the country, the years-long effort to get Zak to America culminated in two simple words on Instagram: "Wheels up."Now in Always Faithful, Tom and Zak tell the full story of the divergent paths that led them to Afghanistan, the dangerous road they walked together in service to America, and how their commitment to each other ended up saving them both. Brilliantly told in Tom's and Zak's alternating first person voices, Always Faithful tracks the parallel lives of these two men who each spent their childhoods in fear, peril, and poverty, and turned to war in attempt to build a meaningful future. On an inevitable course towards each other, their lives dovetail in Afghanistan's deadly Helmand Valley, where they formed a brotherhood that transcends even the most overwhelming of odds, eventually culminating in Zak's harrowing, eleventh-hour rescue.The end result is an intensely personal and uniquely ground-level account of Tom and Zak's experience,Always Faithful gives readers a 360-degree view of the war. At once provocative and heart pounding, their stories together form a microcosm of the complicated and lasting effects of America's longest war. Through their eyes and their experiences, they challenge readers to explore the legacy of the war for American and Afghan citizens alike, as we all collectively seek to understand whether twenty years of war was worth the price.REVIEWSIn plain old good writing, this book tells how two individuals fought the forces of the Taliban, Afghan corruption, and U.S. government bureaucracy to bring one interpreter's family to safety and freedom. It is a gripping and poignant story of quiet heroism, with a hair-raising ending. You will finish this book feeling triumphant for the few that got out, and angry and sad for the many we shamefully left behind. - Karl Marlantes, author of Matterhorn, What It Is Like to Go to War, and Deep RiverSchueman and Zaki offer a haunting account of the courage and sacrifices of U.S. troops alongside their Afghan partners over the past two decades. Amid the backdrop of America's longest war in history and hopes out of reach, their stories are a testament to the enduring human spirit. - U.S. Senator Dick DurbinA tremendous look inside the relationships forged in combat and the dedication and sacrifice of the Afghans and Marines who served side by side to gain a better future for Afghanistan. This book is honest, compelling, and full of suspense. This book is Honor, Courage, and Commitment at its finest. - Lieutenant General Lori Reynolds, United States Marine Corps (retired), former Deputy Commandant for InformationA classic, heartwarming story of two hardened warriors, one Afghan and the other American, who keep faith with each other and emerge triumphant from impending death. This incredible rescue shows what determined Americans can accomplish, despite government incompetence. A fitting metaphor for America's longest and most bungled war. - Bing West, bestselling author ofThe Last Platoon: A Novel of the Afghanistan WarWars are full of fascinating stories. As part literary memoir and part thriller, Always Faithful certainly is one of those. It's a book that demands attention. By telling the story from both an American and an Afghan perspective, Always Faithful offers a unique view within the literature of America's post-9/11 wars, which often lacks the voices of the people most affected. As we contemplate the meaning and value of twenty years of war, Tom Schueman and Zainullah Zaki offer us a path to understand the human cost of service in Afghanistan and the inherent bonds of our shared humanity. - Steven Pressfield, bestselling author of Gates of Fire and A Man at ArmsABOUT MAJOR TOM SCHUEMANMajor Tom Schueman served in Afghanistan for sixteen months, including the single bloodiest battle of the war in Afghanistan as a platoon commander with the Third Battalion, Fifth Marines in Helmand Province. Schueman redeployed to Afghanistan as a JTAC and advisor to the Afghan National Army while he was a member of First Reconnaissance Battalion. Schueman went on to get his master's in English literature at Georgetown University and teach English literature at the United States Naval Academy. He is currently a student at the Naval War College and remains on active duty. He is also the founder of the nonprofit Patrol Base Abbate.Book Available on Amazon:https://www.amazon.com/Always-Faithful-Afghanistan-Unshakable-Interpreter/dp/0063260611

    With years of training with the best teachers, including Grammy award winner Ustad Zakir Hussain, it's no surprise that Salar Nader is considered percussionist royalty. Apart from composing Kite Runner's score, Salar has also performed for the hit show and is playing the tabla for its current Broadway run. Salar passionately shares the history of tabla and the tradition that comes with it, treating instruments as a living entities and why it's important for him to connect with an instrument before playing it. No matter how long he's been playing and making music, Salar still considers himself a student who has more to learn--whether it's from performing or from the cast. He shares a story of buying three sets of tablas in 2020 to use for Stanley Clarke's concert, not knowing that the world is going to shut down two weeks later. He talks about the longevity of tablas, and why he would usually have a secret backup off stage in case they break on the spot. Salar recalls how he met Khaled Hosseini in the late 90s and how he eventually ended up making music for the Kite Runner's stage adaptation. For Salar, music has no boundary and is the most peaceful way of connection. He shares the emotional aspect of playing music for Kite Runner, and why it gets heavy at times. Salar Nader is a percussionist, composer, producer, beat maker, and one of the most sought-after Tabla virtuosos of his generation. He started his music career at an early age, doing classical training with Tabla bols as his main concentration. He also began studying with the Grammy award-winning Tabla virtuoso, Ustad Zakir Hussain, at the age of seven. With years of training and experience, he has become the leading pioneer in combining the art of Tabla with the musical sounds and rhythms from Afghanistan being the primary component. He is constantly expanding his musical language by weaving Tabla into contemporary music. In 2019, Saler launched the Salar System Collective which offers scholarships, as well as The Salar System album. He originally composed the music for the hit Broadway show, Kite Runner, which has been nominated for several awards. He has now played the tabla in seven “Kite Runner” productions, including its current Broadway run. He's also currently touring with legendary bassist, Stanley Clarke.

    Listen in as we discuss his most powerful moments of combat as a young lieutenant platoon commander, ambushed just moments after stepping out of friendly lines on his very first combat patrol. Hear him debrief himself and learn what he did well and what he'd do differently. He sheds light on how leadership is simple but never easy. He explains how he would adopt a more harmonious approach to company command rather than what he describes as a ruthless drive for "results first." We discuss his new book, Always Faithful – A story of war in Afghanistan, the fall of Kabul, and the unshakable bond between a Marine and an interpreter, which becomes available on August 8th, 2022.  We wrap up discussing the foundation he created, Patrol Base Abbate, of which I am honored to be a member of the Board of Directors. Patrol Base Abbate is named after Marine Sergeant Matt Abbate, who was posthumously awarded the Navy Cross. Matt became the inspiration behind creating a place where everyone who's raised their hand, swore an oath, and wrote a blank check payable in the amount up to and including their own life, feels like they can rest and refit by re-entering friendly lines. This is an incredibly insightful and empowering discussion that leaders from all branches and of all ages can gain something from.  Finally, please consider supporting this project at the new Patreon site at: https://www.patreon.com/momentsinleadershipRelevant Resources & Other Mentioned Episodes:Moments In Leadership Patreon Account: https://bit.ly/3SBxK6fAlways Faithful – link to the book on Amazon (non-affiliate link): https://amzn.to/3p25Q60Major Tom Schueman IG Account: https://bit.ly/3QoMh3fMajor Justin Gray IG Account: https://bit.ly/3SxUcgQPatrol Base Abbate: https://bit.ly/3Qm2XIKPatrol Base Abbate DONATE: https://bit.ly/3Q5ZChlSgt Matt Abbate Navy Cross Citation: https://bit.ly/3bExaEiSgtMaj Dan Reynolds Episode: https://bit.ly/39PZXoqLtGen Dave Furness Episode: https://bit.ly/3cibePj What is Moments in Leadership?Moments in Leadership is a podcast where you will hear firsthand about the careers of senior military leaders as they share their unique and individual experiences.
