President Trump's Riyadh speech last weekend was heavily anti-Iran, pushing off the radar very big news from Iran itself - the re-election of Hassan Rouhani, who staked his very presidency on the nuclear agreement and integration in the world economy. In today's conversation we'll hear a more positive story than the narrative that dominates the main stream media. Jo-Anne Hart is an expert on Iran's internal politics and foreign policy, as well as US-Iranian security relations. She is an Adjunct Professor at The Watson Institute, and she'll be talking with Narges Bajoghli, an Anthropologist and Postdoctoral Fellow, also at The Watson Institute.
