Pajamas Media Podcast with Tony Badran

I have been thinking about getting into podcasting for a while now, and I’ve finally done it. My first interview subject is Tony Badran. He works for the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and writes the must-read Lebanese blog Across the Bay. Tony and I discuss — what else? — Lebanese and Syrian politics. We taped the interview just before the latest Beirut meltdown began, so it couldn’t be a more timely subject.
The interview is available at Pajamas Media. I’m new at this, so please let me know what you think.
UPDATE: Don’t miss Tony’s fisking of a recent New York Times article by Michael Slackman. “Lebanon is probably the most misrepresented and misunderstood of all the Arab states, but some people aren’t even trying.”
