I like this
Smart and it's entertaining.
Smart, informative, and fun
I'm hooked on "Eye on Arabia." The episodes are packed with information about the Middle East yet easy to follow, with many memorable takeaways. They speak directly to the news but provide the kind of context you get from reading a lot of books -- and the show is short and even entertaining!
