i am persian and i love ferdousi and his great great work, The Shahname. i like the idea of this podcast but there are some problems with it. rostam never mentions the names Mohammad nor Ali but the podcaster seems to be more interested in this section. the relationship between rostam and god is clear and with no prophet mohammad or any other obstacle. it is such a disappointment that most persians look at this small section of the shahname and are fascinated by it Religious Significance while there are many more beautiful sections. i give this podcast a 5 because im persian and shahname is awsome!
