Good evening, listeners! On this week’s episode host Richard Aldous speaks with Henri Barkey about the aftermath of the Turkish coup (and how he has been personally dragged into those events) before discussing the famous Bayreuth Festival with Nicholas Gallagher.

First, Henri Barkey, Director of the Middle East Program at the Woodrow Wilson Center, brings us up to speed with the situation in Turkey some four weeks after the failed coup attempt before telling Richard about his experience being accused by Turkish authorities of being involved with said attempted coup.

Then, TAI staff writer (and resident opera reviewer) Nicholas Gallagher speaks with Richard about his time at the Bayreuth Festival in Germany, the famous event held annually to celebrate the works of Richard Wagner.
