Journalist Hollie McKay joins us to discuss Afghanistan as we reflect on the nation now under Taliban control as we mark two years since the fall of the country and the U.S. withdrawal.

Hollie shares her experience reporting in a city suddenly taken over by the Taliban in August 2021, effectively trapping her with no escape. She eventually finds her way out of the country only to return and stay as one of the few western journalists to witness life under the "new" Taliban rule. She also returned in the fall of 2022 to observe the changes in the country and shares what she has now heard from friends and contacts still living in country.

Along with her important insight, Hollie also shares about her next adventure.

Here's a link to Hollie McKay's substack, website and links to her books:
