Podcast #5: Justice deferred

From wild_atheart's Flickr stream. The words (I don't know the source) read: "Does my blood turn to water in your eyes? Did you forget my garment stained in tears?"

Issandr is in Morocco, but Ashraf Khalil and I found time (just barely) to record this week's podcast--in a car between Cairo and Alexandria, on our way (and then, suddenly, our way back) from the postponed Khaled Said trial. Also discussed in this podcast: the bloody clashes in Tahrir this week, and women's political participation, post-revolution. Hope you enjoy, and apologies for background engine noise.
