Michael McFaul US Ambassador to Moscow on the World for 2-13-14

PRI's The World - with Host Marco Werman  

With so many eyes on Sochi and Russia, we thought it would be a good time to chat with Michael McFaul, the outspoken US ambassador to Moscow. He's been a frequent voice on The World for more than a decade and has tracked the trajectory of post-Soviet Russia as closely as anyone. We'll hear his reflections on a country he loves.

Lots of Olympics coverage too - including a skiing Geo Quiz and a timing expert on the digital clocks that recorded a tie for gold in the women's downhill.

Also today,  stories about Muslim American men in the media are more likely to be about terrorism threats than love or romance. But a new collection by 22 Muslim American men sets out to change that narrative -- by letting readers into their love lives. Reporter Shuka Kalantari has their story.

And The World's Shirin Jaafari gives us a glimpse into the Iranian film industry and the state of censorship in a time of change.
