Episode 42 | Farashgard opposition movement (Siavash Safavi Part 2)

Today, Azar 12th 2577/1397, we are at last exposed to Siavash Safavi's life and political activity – the opposition movement Farashgard. Those of you who haven't listened yet to Part 1- about human rights in Iran, might want to do it before listening to this episode, but you can also listen after. It breaks nicely.

Episode 40 | Human Rights in the Islamic Republic – with Siavash Safavi from Farashgard

Today, Aban 28th 1397/2577, we were supposed to have one episode about Farashgard movement, but it was so interesting, we ended up recording more than 2 hours, so here's the first half, dealing mostly with human rights violations in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Episode 13 | Holly Dagres – the Iranist | Ordibehesht 17th, 2577

We met Holly Dagres, a freelance Iran analyst and curator of The Iranist newsletter (subscribe if you haven't already!) to discuss possible implications of Trump's announcement on May 12th 2018, Telegram blockage in Iran, and some other current affairs issues. And to hear about being an American adolescent in Iran. She cracked us up!

Episode 6 (mostly English) | Iranian women special | Esfand 15/16, 1396

הפעם ניצלתי את התירוץ של יום האישה כדי לדבר עם חברתי הטובה ד"ר נאהיד ע'ני על נשים באיראן ועל עוד דברים שמעניינים את שתינו. נאהיד היגרה מאיראן לקנדה לפני שבע שנים, היא היום אזרחית קנדית ולא יכולה לחזור לאיראן אפילו לביקור. כלומר, יכולה, אבל הסיכון גדול מדיי. חוץ מזה, ד"ר ע'ני היא מחברת הפרסום היחיד בשפה הפרסית שעוסק בפרסית יהודית קדומה (כך הכרנו), חוקרת איראן, ופעילה פוליטית לפחות במרחב הווירטואלי.
