Lebanon was already on its knees before a massive explosion ripped devastatingly through the old city of Beirut. We were delighted to be joined by writer and journalist, Séamus Malekafzali, to take a deep-dive into this tiny country that is too often a strategic chess piece in the games of bigger powers. Séamus explains the nuances and intricacies of modern day Lebanon and how they are interwoven with a colonial past as well as more recent conflicts in the area. A great listen.
