Bad Boy (Anisa-Rated)
Note: as this is an episode featuring Anisa, there is cursing as the edit-time to remove the cursing would exceed the full lifespan of the universe.
Fawzi & Rami are joined by Osama Dorias-representative Anisa Sanusi. Things go off the rails pretty much instantly, and never quite recover, although we do manage to talk about games and movies and stuff for like 5 minutes.
Arab Rami, Arab Fawzi, and Arab Osama are three Arab Game Developers Arab-drinking Good Arab Tea.
Osama & Rami congratulate Fawzi on the announcement of Assassins' Creed Mirage.
Fawzi Is Also Here
Rami, Osama, and also Fawzi catch up on the events of the week.
Bokra after Bokra
This time with proper microphones, Osama, Fawzi, and Rami run out of time to discuss all the things they want to talk about this episode.
So, disclaimer: we messed up the recording. We're posting it anyway because the talk is good, but we fully understand if you can't stomach the super-echo.
The Habibis have really been making my lunch breaks better. It’s nice to sit down and listen to three friends have a great time together and bring a completely new prospective to me. A truly great time.
Cultural touchstones often overlooked
The subject matter is so foreign to many of us and so mundane to others that they remind us of valuable time spent in our formative years with family. People with one-sided perspective of western or middle-eastern culture may get lost in the discussions. As a third culture kid this show hits all the right notes.
