A Libyan Treasure

Elham and Marwa (along with their guests) steer an unruly tanker of law and justice through Libya’s rough waters with unflinching clarity, integrity and vision. You are a glowing light through some dark times.

This podcast gives me hope!

Real conversations with people who know what they’re talking.

N. T. B ,

Hands down best Libyan podcast so far!

The topics chosen, the flow of conversations and ideas thrown in and the fact they are not biased is something very important and needed for the development of our country. I just love it and look forward to every episode!
