Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Thursday) | Listen to this entire show:
We spoke with St. Petersburg Times reporter Susan Taylor Martin who recently returned from a reporting trip to Pakistan. A country that has nuclear weapons, is a US ally but which has huge internal problems. Whatâ€™s the future of Pakistan? Weâ€™ll talk about that in a moment.
But first one listener comment about yesterdayâ€™s program on which we talked about the Governor taking advantage of the stateâ€™s cut rate health insurance program for some top state workers and elected officials. We played audio of what one listener had to say.
Over the course of a few weeks in July and August, 2011, Times Senior Correspondent Susan Taylor Martin and photographer Melissa Lyttle traveled through Pakistan to report on the dramatic social and political forces that are reshaping the relationship between the United States and a volatile country that is considered essential to fighting the war on terror. Susan Taylor Martin joins us now.
