🙏🏼 Thank you for making these videos possible through your support of Seek Discomfort
This week, I traveled to the beautiful country of Iraq. All my life I'd heard of the war in Iraq and how dangerous it was to visit, but I wanted to go there and explore if for myself to hear the stories that didn't make it into the media. So, along with Drew Binsky, Lexie Alford and Cory Martin, we were taken around Iraqi Kurdistan by our amazing guide, Baderkhan.
Thank you to Lexie Limitless for joining us on this crazy adventure:

    I’m kind of disappointed in this video , it was supposed to be about Iraq not kurdistan , you showed the kurdish culture rather than the iraqi culture , also I wish that you would’ve shown the good things rather than focusing on the bad things that baderkhan experienced in his early childhood . Iraq is more beautiful than that .. believe me

    Three things stood out for me in this video:
    1) The lady is wearing a singlet in a muslim, male dominated society - in the public market and a place where any bomb can take off.
    2) These people are very fortunate to be able to travel overseas in the midst of the pandemic. I'm from Australia and international travel going out is banned unless your reason is one of the ones the government has stipulated.
    3) I came to know Yes Theory because of Drew and it's great to see these guys are traveling and documenting places together.
    Stay safe.

    Huge disrespect in my opinion and so brass and careless to simply disregard the history and what the Kurds went through to keep calling it Iraq, as you to feel so safe in "iraq".. Go actual iraq, south of where Kurdistan region is and see how you see and feel the difference then.. Typical, ignorant aholes.

      @Don`t give up you make no sense. We are not the same other than being all being humans, but in that case I'm sure you would not accept being controlled by another country and nor do we, that's the simple truth and bunch of hypocrites to keep arguing.

    Beside world’s democracy that they have brought it to Iraq to divide it , to kill the humanity, to make us something different than we are , to show us people who hate peace, safety,love and respect, we still love each other we still have hearts that get sad for our extincting history,we still have nice and beautiful sounds to sing and also ears to hear that sound to feel us in harmony. Although their murder and meaningless ideals we still want to spread our fabulous culture to world , to live in peace and modest.
