This week, Lawfare and Goat Rodeo released the first two episodes of Allies, a podcast series that traces the U.S.’s efforts to protect Afghan interpreters, translators and other partners through the Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) program. In seven episodes, Allies will take listeners through the decade-long effort to honor America’s promises to its Afghan partners.

On Friday, May 20 at 12:00 p.m. ET, Lawfare Editor in Chief Benjamin Wittes will sit down with Bryce Klehm, associate editor at Lawfare and host of Allies, and Max Johnston, creative producer at Goat Rodeo and the show’s lead producer, for a question and answer session on the making of the show.
