What’s Happening Over There?

For my review, I skimmed through the site first looking for a podcast that interested me, not decided on a subject, and found myself drawn to the involvement of Americans in the Middle East and how our wars and changing regimes have affected people over there. I’d heard stories from a friend who grew up in Baghdad during the war, so I was wondering what people living over there were saying about conditions now. We’ve been in and out of the Middle East since the ’90s, and we’ve had a presence in Iraq and Afghanistan for 16 years. These interviews delve into the lives of people living in Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan to paint a picture of how effective or ineffective American reconstruction efforts have been.
