We’re joined by Ziad Majed for Episode 9 of The Beirut Banyan, and we discuss the legacy of Samir Kassir. Ziad was a close friend and political ally of Samir, and he shares with us the journey that took them to the forefront of Lebanese politics, and ultimately led to Samir Kassir’s assassination on 2 June 2005. Currently living in Paris and lecturing at the American University of Paris, Ziad pursues a career that blends academia with journalism and politics, true to Samir Kassir’s legacy. Full versions of the audio clips of Samir Kassir at the 30 and 60 minute marks can be found on the following links: https://youtu.be/i8dspOuAC2c https://youtu.be/9rjE13P-ZCQ Follow us on Instagram: thebeirutbanyan Twitter: beirut_banyan Facebook: The Beirut Banyan Website: www.beirutbanyan.com Music by Marc Codsi​.
