Nick Turse talks to Bill about the ghosts of people and issues not properly put to rest in the years following the Vietnam war. In Vietnam, says Turse, a person who dies outside his or her home dies "a bad death," and it's the responsibility of the deceased's relatives to make peace with the person's "wandering ghost." The multi-decade war with Vietnam, Turse says, is America's wandering ghost, a conflict with which America has never managed to make peace.
