The Iraq War: A 15 Year Anniversary And Nahid Siamdoust On Revolution In Iran Through Its Women And Music
On today's show:
- It’s been 15 years since the United States invaded Iraq. Years later, the U.S. still has a presence in the region, and to discuss, we’re joined by Vince Emanuele, an Iraq war veteran and community organizer.
- Last month, women in Iran took to the streets of the capital, Tehran, in protest over the right to choose whether to wear the hijab. Nahid Siamdoust, a postdoctoral associate at Yale University’s Iranian Studies program, joins us to discuss the revolutionary spirit of Iranian women and played some of the tracks that have inspired resistance in Iran since the Islamic Revolution.
