Join host John Green to learn about Iran's Revolutions. What was the 1979 Iranian Revolution about? As it turns out, Iran has had a long history of unrest in order to put power in the hands of the people. The most recent revolution in 1979 was not necessarily about creating an Islamic state, at least at first. Later, it certainly came to be about that, but it was initially just about people who wanted to get rid of an oppressive regime. Listen up as John teaches you about Iran's long history of revolution.
