    Sindbad’s Wonderland

    Sindbad’s Wonderland

    As summer approaches in Dubai, all we can think about is staying indoors and having fun. So, during this episode we look at Sindbad’s Wonderland—an indoor arcade paradise at Al Ghurair Centre for Dubai kids in the 1980s and 1990s. Spatika and Liz never had the chance to visit Sindbad’s—it closed its doors in 1997—so they tracked down key people who were in Dubai in the 80s to share their memories of what it was like. Listen as Sindbad’s first and only manager Ishwar Chugani, and two former Sindbad gamer players Sonali Kolhatkar and Suraj Mulani TELL US MORE.

    Dubai’s First Skyscraper

    Dubai’s First Skyscraper

    Dubai’s First Skyscraper Our first episode looks at Dubai’s first skyscraper -- Dubai World Trade Center. This 33-story building might seem tiny today compared to the more than 160-story Burj Khalifa and other super tall buildings. But, when DWTC opened in 1979, it was the tallest tower in the Middle East and it sent a signal to the rest of the world that Dubai was open for business. Spatika and Liz had a lot of questions about DWTC so they talked to some experts to find out the answers. Listen as architect and writer Todd Reisz, photographer Hind Mezaina, and DWTC’s first employee Guy Guillmard TELL US MORE.
