Iranian-Australian Shaheen makes a triumphant return to the show! Shaheen was in Iran visiting family during the protests that occurred over the new year. To help with the interview, I enlisted the help of Kyle Anzalone to ask just the right questions. We hope you enjoy this unique insider-look at what happened and how Iranians feel about the United States and the Islamic government of Iran.
