Fresh voices

Sabir takes a new approach to discussing Afghanistan by talking to a mix of younger people, new voices, people behind the scenes, and most importantly Afghans. After decades of only hearing from the same powerful Afghans and the same out of touch Afghan “experts” this podcast is refreshing. Now you can hear about what is going on in reality...good, bad, or unbelievable. Thanks Sabir and guests.
