Here are our favourite UAE podcasts, give them a listen
Whether you’re interested in culture, music, technology or just after a good laugh – the UAE’s podcasters have got you covered…
Over the last few years podcasting has exploded into a worldwide phenomenon, thanks in part to high profile shows such as the mystery-thriller Serial and the appearance of US President Barak Obama on comedian Marc Maron’s WTF podcast.
More and more people are switching off their radios in favour of on-demand, downloadable audio programming.
While the uptick in the Middle East has been slower than in other parts of the world, there are some genuinely engaging podcasts being conceived of, scripted and recorded right in our own back yard.
Here are our picks of the four UAE podcasts that you should be listening to on the regular…
