Episode 14, The OE Goes Global

On this episode, the Orientalist Express goes global as we introduce two new contributors and try desperately to avoid talking about the British royal wedding.  Sebastien Mouret joins the team as a student of international affairs from France, while a Latvian specialist under the name Daniel Storm also makes a debut appearance. They join Nicholas, Matthew, Stephen, and Valida for a discussion of the Iran nuclear deal and its fate after the U.S. withdrawal this month. Then, the gang takes a look at the tense situation in Israel and Gaza, as the United States opens up a new embassy in Jerusalem.
