Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian has been imprisoned in Iran since July 2014. On this edition of Global Journalist, we examine how Iran's internal politics and relations with the U.S. have led to the lengthy jailing of a correspondent for a major U.S. newspaper. 

Our guests this week:

  • Robbie Stauder, a filmmaker and longtime friend of Rezaian
  • Farnaz Fassihi, a senior staff writer covering the Middle East for the Wall Street Journal
  • Sherif Mansour, Middle East program coordinator for the Committee to Protect Journalists
