The two latest episodes of Radio Nowhere present something of a two-episode special on the current political situation in Iran. They are well researched and hopefully worth your time.
Two weeks ago, I recorded a Radio Nowhere episode on the assassination of Iranian general Qasem Soleimani by a US drone strike. That morning, a plane had just crashed in Teheran, in what looked like a direct result of the escalating tensions kicked off by the drone strike. As it turned out, the hunch that I had on that podcast episode turned out to be right: Ukraine International Airlines flight PS752 was indeed shot down by a SAM battery.
After almost two weeks of research into the cause of the downing of that plane, I released a follow-up episode of Radio Nowhere just a few hours ago that aims to explain what happened during that night. These two episodes present somewhat of an ad hoc special on the Iran situation at the moment. If you haven’t done so, it’s probably worth listening to both of those in order:
- Broadcast 5: James Bond, Erwin Rommel and Lady Gaga Rolled into One
- Broadcast 6: Scientifically Impossible
As is my mission with Radio Nowhere, I poured a lot of thought and research into those two episodes. I hope you find them enlightening. Please feel free to give me feedback on what you think about these. You will find contact details at the end of the show notes linked above and you can also use the Fediverse link below, if you prefer that. As always, the show is on iTunes and Spotify. Or you can simply copy and paste the show’s RSS feed directly into your podcasting app. I hope you’ll give it a try and enjoy these episodes!
