Rebecca Lowe describes herself as a "writer, reporter, and rambling itinerant".
When she set off solo from the UK for Iran by bicycle, via around 20 countries, her friends thought she had lost all her senses. But although she had to endure 6000+ miles of extreme heat and authoritarian police forces, and avoid conflict across the region, most of the people she met were a long way removed from stereotypes: overwhelmingly hospitable and unsympathetic to the likes of ISIS.
As a zealous cyclist and someone who is passionate about the politics of the Middle East, it was Benji Hyer’s privilege to invite Rebecca Lowe onto his show to share her fascinating story and her attempt to understand what lies beyond the headlines.
Broadcasted exclusively worldwide on W!ZARD Radio Station.
