Rusty Young: Colombiano

Podcast of the book launch of Colombiano written by Australian born author and journalist Rusty Young. Blending fact and fiction, Colombiano takes us on a heart-thumping journey into the violent and unpredictable world of post-Escobar Colombia.

Rusty Young, author of the international bestseller Marching Powder, lived and worked in Colombia, interviewing special forces soldiers, snipers, undercover intelligence agents and members of two vicious terrorist organisations – the FARC (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia - The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia - People's Army ) and Autodefensas (self-defenders).

During this time he was both shocked and touched by the stories of child soldiers he encountered. He vowed to one day turn their challenging life stories into a book and let their voices be heard.
