Family history, mystery, music, immigration, and more. That's what this trailer drop is all about. We're hitting play on "The Nightingale of Iran," a limited-run, six-episode series from sisters Danielle and Galeet Dardashti.

On each episode of TPP, we select a trailer, hit play on it, and then bring you an analysis of that short audio teaser.

Here's a bit about the show:

It was a golden age for Jews in Iran. In the 1950s, a religious Jew – Younes Dardashti – became a national celebrity, singing at the Shah’s palace and on the radio. In the 1960s, his son Farid became a teen idol on TV. They were beloved by Iranian Muslims. But at the height of their fame, they left the country.

It has always been a mystery to our host Danielle Dardashti and her sister Galeet – Why did their family leave Iran? Now, in a documentary podcast series, the sisters reveal painful secrets unspoken for generations. The Nightingale of Iran is a story that will resonate with outsiders everywhere.
