This bonus episode focusses on what is happening to musicians in Afghanistan since the Taliban returned to power there. Musicians are being hunted and killed just purely for the fact that they are musicians.

To me this is a complete tragedy and as a musician myself, I have no idea how I would respond in this situation.

We are joined by Katherine Schofield from Kings College London to find out more about what is happening to musicians in Afghanistan and what we can do to help.

Thanks to Darren Ferguson from beyond skin for putting me in touch with Katherine and for raising awareness of this issue - you can find out ways you can help from beyond Skin's web page
