Iran’s history has been a never-ending struggle for liberty and independence. In this podcast, Oriana tells the story of how Iran ended up where it is now and how religion, monarchy, democracy, and nationalism all played important roles in defining the lives of its people. A journey that expands 200 years and reaches through three different political systems. New episodes every other Wednesday.
