Purchase Ep. 2 Wars, Coups, Thieves, and a Bean


In 1908, Iran is entrenched in civil war and oil is discovered. Constitutionalists confront conservative Islamic clergy. As the rising German threat looms in the region, World War I engulfs the country ushering in famine and epidemics of Cholera and Spanish Flu until a new king, Reza Shah, emerges to take control.


With protests continuing in Iran as oil prices suffer, new sanctions coming, the fate of Iran’s nuclear agreement with Europe unknown, and the IRGC ready to take control, this episode plunges into the first oil wells in Persia, and the suppression of the conservative Islamic clergy in the early 20th century.
