We are in the third week of Iran's uprising.
After last week's episode, I had so many requests from my
audience asking "What can we do?". So I reached out to a brilliant
Iranian American Scientist who has been an inspiration to many
people around the world.
My guest today is Dr. Firouz Naderi. He held many executive positions during his 36 years at NASA's robotic space missions leading to becoiong NASA's program manager for Mars exploration in 2000. He received NASA's Distinguished Service Medal in 2005 which is considered its highest award.
After retiring from his position, he remains an active advocate
for the Iranian-American dispora formerly having served on the
board of directors of Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian American
I reached out to him to share his thoughts about what is happening in Iran, what are some actionable items listeners can put in practice.
In other news, Shervin Hajipour, the singer of "Baraye" song that I played on the podcast has been released on bond. There is a collective movement to nominate his song for Grammy's under the "best song for social change".
