Emily Tamkin in Washington DC and Ido Vock in Berlin talk to Ted Johnson, senior fellow at the Brennan Centre for Justice on the fight to protect voting rights in the US.

They discuss the attempts to pass new voting rights legislation and whether this is the right time for the Democrats to end the filibuster and allow the senate to pass bills with a simple majority.

Plus Emily and Ido discuss the latest from Afghanistan after a terrorist attack killed dozens and injured many more outside the airport in Kabul.
