Are you ready for an adventure of an 11th century lifetime!? 

What will you do when every village you encounter sends an assassin after your guardian?

This is the premise of the story "The many assassinations of Samir, the seller of dreams". Our guest today, Daniel Nayeri, talks to us about how he came to write this story, why the magic of the silk road fascinates him, and what he hopes everyone gets out of the book.

Enjoy!

About Daniel Nayeri

Daniel Nayeri

Daniel Nayeri was born in Iran and spent some years as a refugee before immigrating to Oklahoma at age eight with his family. He is the author of several books for young readers, including Everything Sad is Untrue (A True Story), winner of the Michael L. Printz Award, the Christopher Medal, and the Middle Eastern Book Award. He lives in the US with his wife and son.

About 'The Many Assassinations of Samir, The Seller of Dreams'

A new all-ages adventure tale from Printz Medal Winner, Daniel Nayeri

This is the tale of an exciting journey along the Silk Road with a young Monk and his newfound guardian, Samir, a larger than life character and the so-called “Seller of Dreams”. The man is a scammer; his biggest skill being the ability to talk his way into getting what he wants. While that talking did save Monkey’s life, it has left a lot of people furious with Samir— furious enough to hire assassins. Monkey decides to try and save Samir from the attempts on his life—as a way to pay off his debt! If he can save Samir six times, he’ll be a free man...but will they all survive that long?

For fans of The Little Prince and Salman Rushdie's Haroun and the Sea of Stories.

**INTRODUCING A NEW DTALKS PODCAST PRODUCTION: '25 FOR 25'**

In Chapter VI: "Let me set the record straight" current International Communications rep with Major League Soccer (MLS) / Soccer United Marketing (SUM) and former PR rep/Jack of all trades/"PT Barnum of Soccer" Gabe Gabor takes us deep into the 'unbelievable" aspects of all things Miami Fusion!

Gabe shares a few different unbelievable stories in this episode which include, but are not limited to, the following:

1. KC dollar night
2. Lockhart construction workers sleepover!
3. Picking up Carlos Valderrama (and entourage) at the airport
4. Almost not hiring iconic Ray Hudson to do commentary for the Fusion
5. Additional details from that memorable "Saginaw, Michigan" US Open Cup game
6. Accidentally getting the first Miami Fusion coach fired?

And SO.MUCH.MORE!

It's a truly incredible episode, and we cannot thank Gabe enough for sharing his stories with us.

Enjoy!

25 years ago, on March 15, 1998, the Miami Fusion kicked off their opening game in MLS' 3rd season, becoming one of the 2 expansion teams in this ever-growing professional league.

In 2001, despite putting together one of the best seasons in MLS history (at that point and arguably since), MLS made the decision to fold both the Fusion and their Florida neighbors, the MLS original franchise, Tampa Bay Mutiny.

While MLS soccer has returned to Miami in the form of David Beckham's Inter Miami, much has been discussed of "what could've been?" Had the Miami Fusion been allowed to stay and build. Indeed, what WOULD a Miami Fusion look like in 2023?

This podcast tells the story of the Miami Fusion through the voices of those who actually lived it. 25 interviews across 25 episodes charting the good, the bad, and the unbelievable.

**INTRODUCING A NEW DTALKS PODCAST PRODUCTION: '25 FOR 25'**

In Chapter V: "Fine, I'll score goals" the 2001 MLS Scoring Champion AND league MVP Alex Pineda Chacon shares his perspective participating as a key figure in that magical 2001 season for the Miami Fusion.

Alex shares his early interactions with Miami a few years before he finally came to the team, how he ended up playing in MLS, and why he begrudgingly accepted his role to 'score goals' when he was used to being the playmaker on the team, not the goalscorer.

It was an absolute delight to welcome this legend to the podcast, enjoy!
