Nice and thorough
Good show. Good analysis. Just an FYI, the quick Arabic lesson from the July 29 episode regarding how to pronounce the Islamist party Ennadha was incorrect. It is not an aspirated “h” sound (ح), but rather an aspirated “h” sound (ه). Just FYI. Other than that…good show and good content.

A Forever Fan
Seeing this show go is a sting to my heart. I loved the topics & discussions. I truly appreciate all the hosts’ insight & wish them well in their other endeavors.
