On this edition of Your Call’s Media Roundtable, we are discussing the new PBS Frontline documentary Taliban Takeover, which details daily life in Afghanistan, especially for women and ethnic minorities. It also revisits the lead-up to the US defeat and the Taliban’s return.

Najibullah Quraishi is one of the few journalists continuing to report on the deteriorating situation inside Afghanistan. He's also gained unprecedented access to the Taliban.
