This is the second edition of Wave of Change, a new special podcast from The Takeaway, covering the mass protests in Egypt and its consequences for the wider Arab world, hosted by John Hockenberry with Celeste Headlee.

In today's episode, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof recaps the latest developments from Cairo; a "face in the crowd" interview with 28-year-old protester Adham Bakry, who fled Tahrir Square when violent clashes broke out between anti-government protesters and pro-Mubarak groups; a historical lesson from the Iranian revolution; and a Takeaway from this morning's show.
