These are some of the stories covered in this episode of the Iran program:

The Persian father of taxidermy

One of our prominent art lovers in the Iran Program got drawn to a scientific art this week. Hoda Lezgee is going to sit down with a man known as the father of taxidermy in Iran. About taxidermy, I told Hoda as fascinating it is to see the beauty of captivating animals up-close, I personally cannot ignore the possible cruelty underlying that animal’s fate. Hoda said: “Fifty years ago, Dr. Hedayat Tajbakhsh campaigned to make hunters abide by ethical rules.” She also said: The purpose of taxidermy is to teach. Through it people get to learn about the various animal species of different regions. Hoda said: Without the science and art of taxidermy Charles Darwin couldn’t have made the contributions he is so well known for. I was convinced and I hope you are, too.

Lip smacking pickles

One of the side-dishes you definitely want to taste with Persian food is our great variety of pickles. Aside from their lip-smacking taste, pickles have healthy bacteria that help break down the hard-to-digest cellulose and some natural sugar.
