We review the latest in the My Big Fat Greek Wedding franchise, discuss the natural disasters in Morocco and Libya that have killed, injured, and displaced thousands, the genocide by starvation in Artsakh, and the one year anniversary of the start of the current Iran protests.
It’s a week of heavy and tragic news across the SWANA region, from a 6.8 earthquake in Morocco, devastating floods in Libya, another Armenian genocide underway in Artsakh, and the commemoration of Jina Amini’s murder and its sparking of the “Woman, Life, Freedom” movement in Iran and Kurdistan and the diasporas. We discuss all of these topics and what you can do to help, and follow it up with a relatively lighthearted review of My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3, give our recommendations, and much more.
