Jimmie Briggs, author of Innocents Lost: When Child Soldiers Go to War engages Strange News composer Rolf Wallin and Ugandan Arthur Kisenyi in a conversation about current conditions of child soldiers in Uganda and the Congo (several of whom were interviewed by the Strange News creators). They also discuss recent successes by non-government organizations such as the Norwegian charity Christian Relief Network, which facilitated their interviews and are working in the field to reintegrate former child soldiers into society.
