The Taliban's Takeover of Afghanistan

The Taliban has taken control of Afghanistan in just 10 days, sweeping back to power after two decades. To understand the situation, we begin by discussing the messaging that the Taliban has been putting out to the global community and in the media. Then we discuss the need for other countries to offer support to Afghan refugees. Finally, we hear from an Afghan refugee living in Malaysia and end with a poem written and read by Afghan poet, Baran Ayoubi.
