It has come to be accepted to say Farsi when referring to the main language of Iran. However we do have a name for it in English, it’s called Persian . The same way that you don’t say I’m learning to speak “Français” , but French when speaking in English . It’s a small detail but seen by many Iranians as a propaganda tool for separating Iran from its historical Persian roots
I also came to the Achaemenid empire via Mr Carlin and have now found myself here, I’ve listened to 40 episodes and will continue. Trevor Culley’s “history of Persia” is excellent. This podcast is informative, detailed, interesting and entertaining. The structure of episodes allows for the narrative to flow with rich detail of many aspects of the Persian empire. Fantastic knowledge, truly democratic. Thank you.
