About This Episode
One year after the bungled withdrawal from Afghanistan, the World Review team looks at competing narratives about what happened and why—and where it leaves the Afghan people. Also this week: Zaporizhzhia’s nuclear plant has become a new frontline of the war to control Ukraine, and fuel for skyrocketing anxiety for EU leaders fearful of a serious nuclear incident. Plus—an Iran deal is in the offing.
