V&B Extra-Mark Bowden

Views and Brews Extra is a podcast that brings you all the discussions we have off the Cactus stage.

On this episode, KUT’s Rebecca McInroy talks with writer and journalist Mark Bowden, National Correspondent for The Atlantic and author of Black Hawk Down: The Story of Modern War.

His latest book Hue: 1968 chronicles the story of the centerpiece of the Tet Offensive and a turning point in the American War in Vietnam.

They talk about the influence his father had on his career, what makes a good leader, and the state of journalism today.
