Episode 1: Europe and Iran
What was so significant about the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and how important was Europe’s contribution?

Amid the standoff between the U.S. and Iran, what role can the EU and Russia play in salvaging the deal and averting a military confrontation? Rob Malley, a key negotiator of the Iran deal, joins Olya and Hugh to explore these questions.
