21st Century Wire's Podcast

We travel to South Lebanon to meet with our guide there. We tour a former war zone that spans from the Crusades all the way to 2000 when the Hezbollah resistance fought and pushed back the Israeli Occupation, and later in 2006 when they defeated Israel’s IDF.

We're joined in-studio by a very special guest, Dani Shukri, drummer for the band Tanjaret Daghet طنجرة ضغط (aka 'Pressure Pot'), a Syrian rock band currently based in Beirut, to discuss their music and what's happening in the underground music & culture scene here in the Middle East region.
