‘Afghanada’ is an award-winning Canadian radio drama series, airing on CBC Radio One and Sirius Satellite Radio. CBC is currently broadcasting the show’s fifth season.
I’ve become kind of ‘addicted’ to it, it’s really really good! Like the audio stories Andy McNab produced, it’s with all the sounds and although you don’t see images, it’s like you’re there. It also got a very human approach and once you get to know the characters you feel you live through the events with them. Highly recommended and the shows are available on iTunes!

About The Show:
Created by Greg Nelson, Adam Pettle, Andrew Moodie and Jason Sherman.

“Afghanada gives us a grunts-eye perspective of the war in Afghanistan.  3 -1 Bravo is a Canadian Forces light infantry section fighting with NATO forces deep in the heart of the conflict.  Every day, Sgt. Pat Kinsella (Jenny Young), Private Dean Donaldson (Paul Fauteux) and Private Lucas Manson (Billy Maclellan), confront the chaos and violence of life ‘outside the wire’.

Based on actual events on the ground in Kandahar, each week’s episode takes the listener on an intense and compelling auditory journey, an unadorned reflection of the very real life and death situations Canadian soldiers face every day in Afghanistan.”
