Clarissa Ward has been reporting from Afghanistan as the Taliban takes control. Her compelling journalism from the streets of Kabul brings the reality of the situation to the world.

Ward said, “I’ve covered all sorts of crazy situations. This was mayhem. This was nuts,” about the current situation in Kabul. She spoke about her career as a journalist in a variety of hectic environments earlier this year on Watching America.

Growing up between two cultures - two worlds - can teach a kid a lot. But it cannot teach an innate love and talent for storytelling. Clarissa Ward has both.

Ward is the chief international correspondent for CNN and has collected quite a number of stories during her lifetime of traveling, reporting and teaching others what she knows.

Dr. Alan Campbell talks with Ward about her childhood, early career, biggest lessons for aspiring journalists, and her new book that ties it all together: On All Fronts: The Education of a Journalist.

Ward takes us from hot zones to front lines in a world that never slows down.
