Tunisian Revolutionary Rap

My burgeoning radio career continues. I recently returned from ten days in Tunisia, researching a story on Tunisian rap and its role in the revolution there. (Look for the story in Spin in the coming months.) While I was there, I spoke to my new best friend Marco Werman from PRI’s “The World” about the subject. This post also marks the debut of my considerable, uh, talents as a photographer. The photos below the link were snapped by me with my trusty camera-phone.
