Matt Fraser's Interesting People

The most interesting people you come across in life are never the ones who are on TV or mainstream media. You meet them through a friend of a friend or get talking to them in a pub. They are out there in the world doing cool things like measuring space weather in Antarctica, or driving from London to Sydney on a motorbike. I want to spend some time with these people and find out what makes them tick. I think every different perspective helps as you try to make sense of life and that talking to people who are different to you is one of the best ways to learn about the world.

I talked with Iranian woman Saba about the Iranian people, their culture, and the disconnect that exists between many of them and their government. We talked about how it feels to be arrested for wearing indecent clothing as a woman and I asked her how she feels about the West given events like the 1953 U.K. and U.S.A. orchestrated coup to overthrow the democratically elected Prime Minister in the name of oil.
