Breaking News

The AfPak File podcast, a joint effort of RFE/RL and the Wilson Center, is currently on a summer hiatus. We expect to be back with our regular, bi-weekly schedule of podcasts in the early fall of 2022.

We will, however, be posting two new special editions of the podcast, to mark the one-year anniversaries of the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan and the Taliban takeover. The moderator of these two special editions will be Michael Kugelman of the Wilson Center.

Muhammad Tahir, the moderator of the AfPak File since its inception, has moved on from RFE/RL. We are deeply grateful to him for helping make the podcast so successful, and we wish him much luck in his future endeavors.
