Kerning Cultures will challenge the lens in which you look at the Arab world
Hard to find a podcast that gives you the intimate glimpse in to present day thought, narrative, and inspiration of the Arab world as you find here with Kerning Cultures. I also love the clear direction being given to share what is being produced, created, and catalyzed in MENA right now rather then focusing on "potential" of doing so. There are so many beautiful narratives, inspiring creations, and success stories throughout the region...thank you KC for helping to make that known to those who maybe didn't know before and for working to challenge the lenses in which the international community looks at the Arab world.
This is my new favorite podcast
