Another GREAT "History of" Podcast
Finally a well developed podcast on Islam! The narrator does an outstanding job of delivering a well rounded and super-informative podcast. Mr Belhaddad has done his homework and brings a fresh perspective on not just Islam, but the world, environment, geography and cultures (even livestock) that were present during the period in history that he is covering.
The most timely and vital podcast there is, these days
All Westerners, such as my self, need to get into this. If you see Muslims as your enemy, Lao Tzu's Art of War advises one to know thine enemy. If you have a cursory knowledge of the subject, this is where you get to sharpen it up. If you see Muslims as yet another bunch of folks caught in the grips of a monotheism, there will be something for you here. This podcast is full of information, the death of ignorance.
As for the host, I get the feeling that he doesn't yet know that he has a pretty natural aptitude for this. I look forward to when he really finds his flow after a dozen or so more episodes and the few vocalized pauses (uh, er, uhm, etc.) evaporate... Not to say it's a bother now. He's got his own style and he pronounces the Arabic words correctly (at least wherever he and his family came from before going UK).
In light of recent events, information and understanding are in such sorely short supply. This podcast is a brilliant candle in the cavern of ignorance.
People, get into this......
Loving it. Keep it going.
