A three-part series, spanning three continents, to tell the story of the women the world forgot.

Dear Taliban

Hosted by Molly Thomas

In the spring of 2023, The Michener-Deacon Fellowship for Investigative Reporting was awarded to then CTV W5 correspondent, Molly Thomas for her special project on education in Afghanistan.

Then, as part of a series of nation-wide cuts from Bell Media, Molly was laid off and the story was shelved.

That’s where Canadaland stepped in.

We’ve teamed up with Molly and the Michener-Deacon Fellowship to produce Dear Taliban, a new 3-part series.

Dear Taliban spans three continents, taking listeners to the vice-regal pomp and ceremony of Rideau Hall, to one of the best hostile training programs in the world – all to prepare her for a complex and volatile area of South Asia.
