PODCAST #24: Margot Lachlan White on her latest "Waking Up in Tehran"
Margot Lachlan White speaks to host Colin Marshall about Waking Up in Tehran: The Untold Story of Iran's Revolution, coming this summer.

White's eyewitness account of Iran's Revolution also tells a love story set against the background of the political resistance to dictatorship, civil war against the Kurds, arrest, interrogation and imprisonment, all of which occurred during the years she spent in Iran as a human rights observer.
