Introducing The Women's War, a Brand New iHeartRadio Original Podcast

Hi SMNTY listeners - today we wanted to give you a preview of the newest project from Robert Evans (host of Behind the Bastards and It Could Happen Here and co-host of Worst Year Ever). It's called The Women's War, and you can listen to episode 1 now over in that feed here. And don't forget to subscribe in the new feed so you never miss an episode! These are...not optimistic times for most Americans. Across the world, the dangers of climate change and the terror of creeping authoritarianism present an increasing danger to all of us. After covering this degeneration for four years, Robert Evans went looking for hope. He found it in the unlikeliest of places: Northeast Syria, in a region known as Rojava that’s become host to a feminist, anti-authoritarian revolution.  When you’ve heard about these folks in the mainstream media, they’re usually just described as the “Syrian Kurds”, and credited with beating ISIS. They did, in fact, beat ISIS. But their military successes were just part of the story. In The Women’s War, Robert will introduce listeners to dozens of men and women fighting a war for the future of the human soul.  Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers
