A Peabody For An NPR Podcast


“Throughline: ‘Afghanistan: The Center of the World’” a three-part miniseries on NPR has one a prestigious Peabody Award. The award, in the Podcast/Radio category was for the podcast produced and hosted by Rund Abdelfatah and Ramtin Arablouei.

The Peabody announcement reads-“Throughline’s magisterial three-part miniseries on Afghanistan offers the long view of a country that Americans often treat as a threat, afterthought, or tragedy, particularly after the chaotic withdrawal of the U.S. military in 2021. By centering the country in its own story and pulling back the frame to consider Afghanistan as a full ‘civilization,’ the team restores a necessary sense of scale to what is often lost in our understanding of the region across the decades and centuries of countless western media reports.”
