After more than seven years of war, who will win the peace?

It looks like President Bashar al-Assad has won the war in Syria. But who will win the peace?

In the debut episode of The Take, a new podcast by Al Jazeera’s Jetty Studios, we explore the final play in Syria: The country’s die-hard rebels are locked in a corner, the Syrian government is opening borders, and the outside powers that supported opposing sides are now striking deals.

Host Imtiaz Tyab turns to Al Jazeera correspondent Zeina Khodr for clarity at a crucial point in one of the worst wars of the 21st century.
