Iranian ex-pat “Nadi” (Voted #5 Ep of 2012)
A former Marxist revolutionary who fled her native Iran after the capture of her husband in the mid 80’s, she eventually settled in San Francisco and became a nurse at a psychiatric hospital. The fact that we never even discuss what she has experienced as a nurse in two hours speaks to the amount of drama she has endured. Survivor’s guilt, betrayal, loss, discrimination and poverty have not stopped her. A truly incredible story that is still unfolding.
