A well done primer
This podcast has given me an insight and a framework for understanding some of the dynamics and interactions and rationale for what’s happening in the Middle East, from the Arab perspective. A valuable resource and well worth the time investment.
Worth your time
I’ve been following Iyad al-Baghdadi on twitter for years. His intellectual integrity is a rare gem. I don’t always agree with him. But I almost always learn from him.
