The Podcast

‘Emirati Stories’ is an audio podcast that gives you the opportunity to discover the Emirati culture and society through individual life stories. In a calm and friendly atmosphere, Emirati guests from a variety of backgrounds speak about themselves at their own pace, sharing their aspirations, motivations and sometimes also their doubts, going back to the roots and key influences of the past.
Halfway between journalism and literature, away from the whirlwind of geopolitical news, this programme aims at providing a foreign audience with new tools to understand the way people in the Arabian Gulf think and see the world around them.
