I followed Joey Ayoub on Twitter for years and now I find out he has a podcast?!?! Joey and his guests are so smart and they talk about topics that don’t always get coverage in mainstream media.

A breath of fresh air in the political /activism discourse landscape I didn’t know I was missing until I started listening. Incredibly lucky we are as audience members to have access to so many vanguard thinkers all in one space.

A really interesting and eclectic podcast and a breath of fresh air in the sense that the issues covered are approached in a very independent minded, thoughtful, authentic and curious way. Thank you!

Somehow brings emotional and political clarity to the most complicated topics that are otherwise ignored or manipulated. Creates space for so many different perspectives not just one ideology

Extensive, thoughtful discussions on topics of global concern, with a Mid East bent. The guest selection is always impressive and Joey’s Syria-related takes are beyond sharp. Always look forward to seeing new episode in the feed. Please keep it up Joey

There are few podcasts I know that have a similar scope to The Fire These Times - both in terms of the range of guests and themes and also the intimate style of the discussions. I have discovered loads of new writers or projects through this show and had access to perspectives that I would...Read full review »

As someone who’s not much of a fan of conversational podcasts, this show is absolutely the exception for me. Joey does a fantastic job of finding interview guests who he can engage in lively, nuanced analysis of global politics from a deeply personal perspective, all the while making complex...Read full review »

Fantastic, nuanced analysis of a wide array of topics, with fascinating guests every time. Worthy of being listened to, especially by many on the Western left.
