The Saudi Royal Family over the last 100 years

This radio episode is about the long lineage of Saudi Kings deriving from just one monarch.  It covers the details of reclaining the holy cities in 1902 to present day trials and conflicts.  Deals were made with FDR and Eisenhower through oil development and military protection.  We had a caller from Oklahoma who knew the grandson of the Shah of Iran who was ousted in 1979.
