Archeology and Iraq

Esteemed podcasting colleague who’s radio program was greatly scaled down last year, to a simple interview-based podcast, Christopher Lydon, recorded another brilliant conversation last week.

His guest was born in Mosul, Iraq, a former bodybuilder and respected archeologist, Behnam Abu Al-Souf is a an amazing source of wisdom and truth.  He speaks about Iraq over the past decades, especially when he was a young man growing up in Iraq. There is also plenty of dialogue about the archeological treasures and incomperable history of the region.

My words could not possibly do this man, or Chris’s interview, justice.  Therefore I recommend you give it a listen, it is like taking an insightful journey through time, space, and something more.
