Middle East Journalist Barbara Slavin: "Iran Gets a New President, But Will It Make a Difference?"

Our guest is Barbara Slavin, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council's South Asia Center who's also the Washington correspondent for Al-Monitor.com, a website devoted to news from and about the Middle East. (You can read some her recent Al-Monitor articles here.) Slavin is also the author of "Bitter Friends, Bosom Enemies: Iran, the U.S., and the Twisted Path to Confrontation" --- and she regularly discusses Iran and/or America's relationship with Iran on NPR, PBS, and C-SPAN. Previously, she served as assistant managing editor for world and national security at The Washington Times, as senior diplomatic reporter for USA Today, and as Cairo correspondent for The Economist. Slavin has also worked as an editor at the Week in Review section of the Sunday New York Times. Last night, she gave an address to the Tulsa Committee on Foreign Relations entitled, "Iran Gets a New President, But Will It Make a Difference?" This is the key question of our wide-ranging conversation with Slavin on today's ST.

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
