The VICE Podcast is a weekly unedited discussion which delves inside the minds of some of the most interesting, creative, and bizarre people we know within the VICE universe. This week we speak with author and filmmaker Ben Anderson, who has just returned from another trip to Helmand, Afghanistan's most violent province. With US forces withdrawing, most of the country is now under the control of the Afghan government and its security forces. This, it is officially claimed, is victory. Ben, and his disturbing new VICE film "This is what winning looks like" would suggest otherwise.
