The Deep Map

Dec 12, 2022

The oldest Christian nation in the world is about to celebrate the birth of Jesus amid growing tensions with its Muslim-majority neighbor, Azerbaijan. How Armenia – a tiny country of 3 million people sandwiched between Azerbaijan, Turkey, Georgia, Russia, and Iran – can survive the chaos of regional politics is unclear. In this episode, Robert and his Philos Project colleague Mariam Wahba sit down with Lara Setrakian, an award-winning Armenian-American journalist, to understand why Armenia matters, what it stands for, and why she moved her family back in these troubled times.

Lara Setrakian is the co-founder and CEO of News Deeply and a former Middle East correspondent for ABC and Bloomberg TV. She is a graduate of Harvard University.
