In hour one of Here & Now's Dec. 21, 2016 full broadcast, we speak with the editor of a new, never-before-seen collection of musician Johnny Cash's poetry about how Cash's writing relates to his prolific career as a singer and songwriter. Also, we talk with Michelle Shephard, national security reporter for the Toronto Star, about a recently released hostage video of an American hostage, her Canadian-born husband and their two young sons. The family was captured by the Taliban-linked Haqqani network in October 2012. You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook and Tumblr.
