Two years ago, tens of thousands of Afghans fled their country and the Taliban. Utah was one of the first states to reach out to President Biden, offering our state as a haven. As the refugees arrived here, it quickly became an extreme situation that tested our community. A new KSL Podcast is telling the stories of some of those refugees, along with those of many Utahns who stepped in to help.
Andrea Smardon, host of “Stranger Becomes Neighbor: Afghan Arrivals,” shares some stories from the podcast.
