This week on War News Radio, we proudly present some of our favorite pieces from the fall.

First, we take a look at a new plan to put Iraqi-made goods and clothing on American store shelves. Listen now to Elizabeth Threlkeld’s report.

We also learn about one of Iraq’s religious minorities, the Mandaeans. Listen now to Hansi Lo Wang’s report.

Then, we’ll get an expert’s take on the historical context of America’s involvement in the Middle East. Listen now to Jon Erwin-Frank and Dan Symonds’s report.

And we hear how some Iraqis have developed a taste for American television. In cities across the country, shows like Dr. Phil, Oprah, and Desperate Housewives are showing different sides of American culture. Listen now to Emmane Desjardins’s report.

Finally, in our A Day in the Life series, we hear the story of an Iraqi blogger. Listen now to Calvin Ho and Sam Barrow’s report.
