How We Got Here #29

audioicon1

New history podcast is up–long versions of my interviews this week with Haleh Esfandiari, author of My Prison, My Home and Peter Maass who wrote Crude World: The Violent Twilight of Oil.  There’s also an interview with the Canadian health care expert and former politician Roy Romanow on the origins of the Canadian system. Finally an excerpt that didn’t make it into the radio segment from my interview Tuesday with Anne-Marie Goetz of UNIFEM, The UN Development Fund for Women, about rape as a weapon of war.  I include it in the history podcast  because Goetz includes a great deal of historical perspective in answering the question of why it’s so urgent to address epidemic levels of sexual violence in conflict and post-conflict zones around the world.  More info on HWGH#29 at http://www.theworld.org/history as soon as I have time to post there.

My Prison, My Home

An amazing book by an amazing woman. Here’s my interview with Haleh Esfandiari on PRI’s The World today. A longer version will go in the next episode of my How We Got Here podcast which I hope to get out by the end of the week.
