Inquisitive Minds Podcast Critical Thinking on History, Religion, Politics and Culture

In this week's episode of the Inquisitive Minds Podcast, we discuss two recent events which happened in the Province of Quebec: a shooting at an Islamic Cultural Centre in Quebec City on January 29th and a bomb threat at Concordia University on March 1st. We try to understand the possible motivations behind such acts and the implications this might have on Quebec society in general.

June 30th, 2015 is the set deadline for the UN Security Council Members (the famous P5 + 1 = US, Russia, China, France, Britain + Germany) to reach a deal concerning Iran's nuclear program. Should the US agree to let Iran enrich uranium, and can the Islamic Republic really be trusted? Why are the other Arab nations opposed to this deal? Egypt and Saudi Arabia already face Iran's expansionist actions as seen in their support of Houthis fighters in Yemen. Will a nuclear entente between the US and Iran open to door for the Iranians to obtain the bomb? How will this play out in the constant wars that are being fought in the region between Sunni and Shi'a, and what role does Israel play in such negotiations? These and many more questions will be discussed in this week's episode of the Inquisitive Minds Podcast.
