Today, the Taliban announced a public holiday to mark the first anniversary since their return to power in Afghanistan. As they congratulate themselves, the Afghan people may find little to rejoice, however. The Taliban is yet to run a fully functioning government, women’s rights are evaporating, and the economy took another blow today as the Biden administration announced it won’t be releasing billions of dollars of frozen Afghan assets any time soon. It’s a life or death situation for many Afghans who face malnutrition, and the United Nations is warning that half the population faces acute food insecurity. Today, we take a closer look at the current state of play inside the country. 

Today's guests include former US Ambassador to Afghanistan Ryan Crocker, former Afghan Youth Representative to the UN Shkula Zadran, and Committee to Protect Journalists President Jodie Ginsberg.
