An Iranian-American woman creates an online marketplace for underground Iranian designers.
We meet Golshid Mola, an Iranian-American businesswoman who is trying not to fall afoul of US sanctions. Plus, the Afghan carpet makers who are weaving images of drones into their rugs. And a New York sommelier who spices up meals with personal stories of the wine he pours.
Also, US basketball teams break out special uniforms for the Chinese New Year. The green tech revolution leaves consumers in the dark. And the Florida auto repair shop specialising in Soviet-era cars.
