U of I Cancels Trip to Israel
Assistant Professor of Classics and Religious Studies at the University of Iowa Bob Cargill was supposed to take his students to Tel Azekah in Israel this summer. Thursday morning, rockets landed in the next city over.
The cancelation of Cargill's program may be the latest way the Israel-Palestine conflict is hitting home in Iowa, but it's far from the hardest. Host Ben Kieffer discusses the the conflict, the media coverage and the Iowa connections to the region with Cargill on this podcast of River to River.
