Catherine Besteman, the Francis F. and Ruth K. Bartlett Professor Department of Anthropology, was a guest on the podcast None of the Above in an episode titled “Airstrikes in East Africa.” In the episode, Besteman and Nairobi-based journalist Amanda Sperber “unpack why the United States is waging an unofficial drone war in Somalia and explore the history and human costs of this conflict. They discuss the evolution of Al-Shabaab (an affiliate of Al-Qaeda), civilian casualties from U.S. airstrikes, and how Somalia exemplifies what many consider to be the strategic and moral failings of America’s global war on terror,” according to the episode’s landing page.
