An American Hostage Story
In 2008, Jason Rezaian made a life changing decision to move to Iran and follow his dream of being a foreign correspondent. He fell in love, became a reporter for the Washington Post and even played host to Anthony Bourdain in the Iran episode of “Parts Unknown.” Then, Rezaian’s life was turned upside down when he was arrested and held hostage in Tehran’s notorious Evin prison for 544 days. At least 40 Americans are currently held captive around the world – not by terrorist groups but by foreign governments. World Affairs hears Rezaian’s story and why he thinks it’s essential that the U.S. government and media change the way they talk about American hostages abroad so we can finally bring them home.

Liz Weil on Coming to Terms with the Trans-Apocalypse
Beset by a climate crisis that's creating ever more devastating wildfires, Californians may find it "easy even comforting, to sit in despair," writes reporter Liz Weil. But, she continues, "nihilism is a failure of the imagination, the bleak, easy way out. We need to face the lives before us." That includes recognizing that we're in what climate futurists call the "trans-apocalypse": a reality defined by the imperative that humans engage constantly with ecological threats. We'll talk to Weil about the origins of California's wildfire problem and how we can address it.
