The Link Between Minamata, Japan in the 1950s and Mosul, Iraq in the 1970s

Today’s podcast takes an international turn, and we go back in time to visit the small town of Minamata, Japan in the 1950s to see what they went through due to a chemical factory’s bad practices. ¬†And then we turn to the sprawling mecca of Mosul, Iraq in the 1970s, and how the citizens of Mosul and the surrounding cities suffered the same disease that tore through Minamata, though because of very different circumstances.
