Chucky Taylor is the American son of the infamous African dictator Charles Taylor. Raised by his mother in the Florida suburbs, he followed his father to Liberia at the age of 17, where he later commanded a murderous militia. Chucky is now in a federal penitentiary, the first American convicted under the 1994 torture statute.

For the first time, reporter and writer Johnny Dwyer tells this tragic and terrifying story in American Warlord. Join us and Dwyer as he unravels this shocking and essential work of reportage.
