Needed Critical Lens On Contemporary Issues

Sina's new(-ish) podcast is a necessary contribution to current discourse about the Middle East, North Africa, and the rest of the world that fell under the rubric of "the Orient" for so many centuries and until today. Not only does the pod present critical viewpoints from top scholars on breaking news events, but it also has provided a venue for students of the Middle East to explore contemporary events along with the historical contexts that have brought us to the current situation of the Middle East in, for instance, US foreign policy discourse today. Top notch work!

Great podcast

Great podcast. A bit cringy when the host occasionally talks of British imperialism as being internal with regard to Ireland though. Ireland is not British. Beyond that, some great work.

Excellent

One of my favorite podcasts! Intelligent, thorough, insightful, accessible, and very importantly, a lot of fun!
