**Find out more about our Year of Reading here: https://www.shakespeareandcompany.com/product/7486597/shakespeare-and-company-year-of-reading **Kamila Shamsie's new novel Best of Friends begins in Karachi in 1988, a year that would prove pivotal in the political history of Pakistan. Zahra and Maryam are teenagers, on the cusp of adulthood, finding their feet in a world where they have to keep one eye on the intrigues of the school yard and the other on the lives into which they are expecting or expected to step. Lives of vast opportunity but also uncertainty. In fact perhaps the only certainty for both Zahra and Maryam is their friendship. Rock solid since the age of four. But then something happens, or perhaps better to say almost happens, that continues to cast a shadow thirty years later when the story picks up again in London.Buy Best of Friends here: https://www.shakespeareandcompany.com/product/5782828/kamila-shamsie-shamsie-best-of-friends*SUBSCRIBE NOW FOR BONUS EPISODESLooking for Friends of Shakespeare and Company read Ulysses? https://podfollow.com/sandcoulyssesIf you want to spend even more time at Shakespeare and Company, you can now subscribe for regular bonus episodes and early access to Friends of Shakespeare and Company read Ulysses.Subscribe on Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/sandcoSubscribe on Apple Podcasts here: https://podcasts.apple.com/fr/podcast/shakespeare-and-company-writers-books-and-paris/id1040121937?l=enAll money raised goes to supporting “Friends of Shakespeare and Company” the bookshop's non-profit, created to fund our noncommercial activities—from the upstairs reading library, to the writers-in-residence program, to our charitable collaborations, and our free events.*Kamila Shamsie was born and grew up in Karachi, Pakistan.

In her new novel "Best Of Friends" the award winning writer Kamila Shamasie explores the personal and political in Karachi in 1988 and London now. Fourteen year old Maryam and Zahra have been friends for 40 years but can they ever really know each other? Tonight's File on 4 will highlight the shortcomings of the Police and the National Referral Mechanism – the government pathway set up to provide financial, emotional and legal support as well as access to safe accommodation to victims of trafficking – and reveal how British survivors are being let down by the system. Emma talks to reporter Annabel Deas and we hear from a woman we're calling "Isobel" who is currently at risk of trafficking and lives in fear of her life. She was last trafficked earlier this year when she was gang raped and badly beaten by a gang who have abused her for over a decade. Her abuse began when she was 13 years old.

As the dollar reaches historic highs against currencies in both emerging and developed markets, the chances of battling inflation rates shrink outside the United States. The Euro, the British pound, and the Japanese yen have depreciated at unprecedented this year. Steve Hanke, a professor of Applied Economics at the Johns Hopkins University, in Baltimore, explains the global fallout of a soaring dollar. The Premier League's summer transfer window has broken the record for the highest amount ever. We hear more from Tim Bridge, lead partner of Deloitte's Sports Business Group. Protecting the Pope and the Holy See has been the Swiss Guard's job for more than five centuries. Now, the institution is recruiting to grow from 110 to 135 members. While the minimum requirements can be very strict —they include being Swiss, male and Catholic— the position can be a great career move, says Andreas Widmer, a former Swiss guard turned a successful professor and businessman.

Islamabad will receive a $1.1bn loan to boost the economy, but as deadly floods disrupt the country's recovery more will be needed from international sources. Monsoon rains have left more than 1,000 people dead, and a third of Pakistan's territory under water. We hear more from economist Ammar Khan in Karachi. Germany's free public transport (take out hyphens!) programme is in its final days. The scheme is meant to help reduce the use of energy amid a supply crisis triggered by the war in Ukraine and Germany's reliance on Russian gas. We talk to Christian Boettger from the University of Applied Science in Berlin. As the cost of energy reaches record highs, leaders of the European Union discuss emergency measures to curb energy bills. Suzanne Lynch from Politico in Brussels tells us more. Nuclear waste can stay radioactive for thousands of years, but Sweden says they have now found a better way to dispose of it. The BBC's Theo Leggett reports. Amazon has produced the most expensive series ever made: The Rings of Power. The latest release from the Lord of the Rings (take out apostrophe) saga will premiere this week. LA Times's entertainment reporter Anousha Sakoui tells us more. Will Bain is joined throughout the programme by James Mayger, China Economics Reporter at Bloomberg in Beijing, and Kristina Hooper, Chief Global Market Strategist at Invesco in New York City.

With a third of the country under water and more than 1,000 people dead, the government of Pakistan seeks international help to battle the devastating damage caused by monsoon rains. Asif Sherazi, Islamic Relief's director for that country, tells us how the situation looks like in Peshaware, one of the most affected areas. The International Monetary Fund has approved a $1.5bn-loan for Pakistan. The funds are a crucial lifeline for an economy that was already struggling before the floods, as economist Ammar Khan explains from Karachi. The leaders of the European Union are preparing more emergency measures to try and curb soaring energy bills, but fossil fuel producers expect high prices to stay. We hear more form Suzanne Lynch from Politico in Brussels. Can nuclear power present a path to cleaner, cheaper energy? The disposal of nuclear waste, which can stay radioactive for thousands of years, has always made many wary of investing in more nuclear reactors. But now Sweden says it has found a way to storage these residues. The BBC's Theo Leggett reports. The Rings of Power is the latest release from the Lord of the Rings' saga. Based on events that happened long before Frodo started his journey to Mordor, this Amazon production has become the most expensive series ever made. LA Times's entertainment reporter Anousha Sakoui tells us more. And we discuss the latest developments in the markets with Peter Jankovskis from Arbor Financial Services in Chicago.

As Dr. Mirza-Gruber shares in the episode, she has found that by being vulnerable with her patients, she is able to understand and help them better, and to ultimately find more joy in practicing medicine. By allowing yourself to be vulnerable and acknowledge your personal worries or doubts, Dr. Mirza-Gruber has found that physicians are able to better show compassion for themselves, so that they are then more suited to care for others.

She believes in connecting mind, body, heart, and spirit for healing.    She has been facilitating Mind-Body Skills Groups and workshops since January 2018 to bring healing in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, and now during the Coronavirus pandemic.    Manizeh is happily married to her husband and has two adult children and a dog. She has a daily practice of running, yoga, and meditation. She has run several marathons, and since 2014 has been “fundracing” for a nonprofit organization, Back on My Feet. She is now one of their lead volunteers for the morning circle runs in the Houston Chapter.

Listening is a big theme of this episode. Speaking to seven seventeen year old students in Karachi Pakistan was fascinating. I asked them “ if the expedition delivers an approach to leadership that resonates with women, what would it need to do to resonate with their generation and geography” Some think that listening was their generations super power, they will listen to hear and not to give orders. Others that their generation needs to learn to listen to understand and not just to reply. All agreed that either way they would be better listeners than their mothers. We also covered the difference between a boss and a leader. How the expedition must not only teach them to collaborate but also to fight. How life of young women in Karachi is locked up. And we spoke of their rage. If cultural intelligence comes from listening to people in very different geographies, it also comes big time from people who are a third of your age .

Australian cinematographer Jules O'Loughlin's path to movie making was a long journey. After graduating from the prestigious AFTRS- Australian Film Television and Radio School- he worked steadily and shot a wide range of films and TV shows including the action movie The Hitman's Bodyguard, the series Black Sails, the horror movie Krampus and the children's film Come Away. His recent work on two series, The Old Man and Ms. Marvel, show off his ability to visually transport audiences to other worlds. The FX action spy series The Old Man began shooting in the fall of 2019. Jeff Bridges plays Dan Chase, a retired CIA agent whose old enemies are still hunting him. The series is very well acted, with great dialog scenes between Bridges and John Lithgow. Jules believes that as a cinematographer, it's important to tread softly, be respectful and give the actors space to work without technical distractions. Jules shot two episodes of the series, with a planned location shoot in Morocco which was standing in for Afghanistan. But in March of 2020 the entire production shut down because of the pandemic. After a few months, production resumed and the desert around Santa Clarita, CA became the Afghanistan location. Unfortunately, shortly after that, Jeff Bridges, who actually did a lot of the fight scenes himself, was diagnosed with lymphoma. Bridges' stunt double stepped in and the VFX team used some digital face replacement for certain parts while he was undergoing treatment. Despite all the setbacks, The Old Man has been a hit and is coming back for a second season. The Disney+ series Ms. Marvel is about young Pakistani-American teen Kamala Khan, who discovers she has super powers after putting on a magic bracelet. The show is energetic, vibrant and colorful, reflecting Kamala's personality and South Asian culture. Jules and director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy knew they could create a slightly different look for episodes four and five, since they take place in the Pakistan city of Karachi. Obaid-Chinoy is an Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker, and she and Jules chose to use more handheld cameras to explore the story's historic narrative as Kamala travels through time to learn more about her family's past. Ms. Marvel has brought an enthusiastic younger audience who are responding to Kamala's cultural identity. In Pakistan. Ms. Marvel is showing in movie theaters, since Disney+ is not available. Jules is currently working on Percy Jackson and the Olympians for Disney+, which involves some new challenges using LED screens on the soundstage.

The Deadly Sacrifice at Hawkes Bay

In February 1983, a group of 42 Shia devotees left a quiet village in the Chakwal district of Pakistan and embarked on an epic journey to Karbala in Iraq. This was no ordinary pilgrimage but had been ordained by Mahdi, the last spiritual leader or Imam of Shia faith. His instructions were communicated to the faithful in miraculous messages channeled through an 18 year old woman. The caravan left in two trucks on the 1300 kilometre journey to the port city of Karachi where they were to cross the Arabian Sea for Iraq. What happened next is a story of extreme sacrifice in the name of the Shia Islamic faith and would result in the deaths of 18 men, women and children. In this programme reporter Shumaila Jaffery returns to their village before she travels to Hawkes Bay to discover what really happened on that moonlit night four decades ago. She tracks down survivors to explore if what the sacrifice of the devoted may tell us about Shia Islam today, asks; ‘could something like this ever happen again'?
