Ep 29 - The Shahnameh Chronicles Pt. 2: The True Prince of Persia with Katie Scott and Damir Siahkoohi
We continue our dive into Firdawsi's Shahnameh with special guests and Persian culture & mythology experts, Katie Scott and Damir Siahkoohi.
In this part 2, we follow the one, the only, the true Prince of Persia. Hero-prince Rostam will go across deserts and mountains in order to fall asleep in some reeds to maybe save King Kai Kavus. Rostam will meet the beautiful princess Tahmina and then leave her for a horse. Along the way, that faithful horse Rakash will fight lions and dragons, while Rostam kills a sheep and fights all of Fleetwood Mac. We'll have one final part to come, so keep listening!
