“It’s been a couple of months since I’ve discovered the realm of podcasting and the variety of the content produced in this form which was really interesting to me as a person who always preferred written content such as books, magazines, blogs, etc over any other type of media, when it came to educating myself or even as a means of entertainment!
After following a couple of famous and popular shows (which were definitely full of new information and insights for me) I came to realize or at least felt like that the realm of podcast production (just like many other fields of content production; prints, movies, music, ..) is too American dominated! Not meaning that it’s a bad thing, but honestly I think the world is much bigger than the USA and there are hundreds of other cultures and countries we can discover and learn about!
And even issues! I wonder why the biggest problem of the world/the most mentioned topic in every single show in previous months should be the USA election?!!! isn’t there anything else to talk about?!
I mean I was just tired of seeing every highly rated show with definitely good contents, excessively revolved around the USA, its events, its issues,...
Actually I was looking for more internationally oriented sort of contents, I also am highly interested in any Middle East related topic! these led me to go for Arabic podcasts (I’m a native Persian speaker who’s somehow familiar with the Levantine Arabic but I still got many difficulties 😅 to fully understand this language, thus Arabic podcast wasn’t a good choice either)!
Until I found about this show! It was like the combination of everything I was looking for 🤩😎: covering a wide range of topics (not necessarily about the USA), presented in English and talking a lot about the Middle East in various aspects!
Keep up the great work! 👍🏼”
