Rick Steves-Writer, Television and Radio Host, Travel Host; Europe Through The Back Door

After spending 10 days filming in Iran, Steves calls the country “the most poorly understood yet fascinating land” he’s ever visited. He will discuss his travels through Iran and his new special program airing on PBS. From Friday prayer in a leading mosque to anti-American murals, Steves presents his message and experiences to help us better understand a nation that continues to be shrouded in mystery and clouded by myths and mistruths.

This program was recorded in front of a live audience at The Commonwealth Club on January 26, 2009
