[…] After watching the podcast “Iraqi Teens Work to Help Their Families” 10/15/07, I have learned more about Iraqi lifestyle. This podcast shows the viewers how young teens, ages 13 to 15, working with their families in long shifts, making paintings and furniture. The teens were interviewed and asked to discuss about their working lifestyles and how they have been dealing with the war. One of the teens, Hussein Kamal was interviewed in a plain looking building where he paints furniture for is father. Because the road conditions are so bad it takes him twice as long to get to work then it should, he explained. Some of the other interviews seemed to be taken in places that looked very run down, where I personally would never want to work in. In these interviews the viewer is able to learn about the daily lives of kids in Iraq and what they have to do in order to help their family survive. I could never imagine working at these ages hard labor. An image of seeing the young teens working so hard at a such a young age is something you do not see everday, here you would see them playing video games or out with their friends. […]

[…] The episode that I chose to watch was Iraqi Teens Work to Help Their Families. This episode is the series called Alive In Baghdad. It was published on October 15, 2007. This podcast was about how Iraqi teens work to help their families. It features three different Iraqi teen boys. One of the boys is fourteen years old and in sixth grade. He works for his father and uncle as a carpenter. He has been working since he was a child. He builds and paints furniture. The scenery is pretty plain. It was filmed primarily outside. Everything seems to looks gray. After watching this podcast a viewer might learn about the current condition in Iraq. Also, what it is like to be growing up in present day Iraq. The difficulties with safety and finances. The podcasts is along the same lines as other videos I have seen about present day Iraq. One thing that really stuck out to me in the podcast was when the teens talked about the safety issue that they face on a daily basis. […]
