At Unravelling the Middle East (UME), we answer fundamental questions and discuss fascinating topics about this region's history - from its founding as the cradle of civilization to its crucibles throughout the centuries to its current challenges and crises. We do this in weekly podcast conversations with eminent scholars.
For a sample of our program, listen to the trailer.
UME's weekly podcast is published in two parts - every Thursday and Friday at 5 a.m. U.S. Eastern Time.
UME is a production of the History Behind News program, now in its 4th season, where host and executive producer Adel Aali speaks with scholars about the history behind our current events. HbN's weekly podcast is published every Wednesday at 5 a.m. U.S. Eastern Time.
This episode is part of the History Behind News podcast, in which Adel Aali has conversations with scholars on the histories of a wide range of subjects in the news -
from ancient history to U.S. politics and economy to race, women's rights, immigration, climate, science, military, war, China, Europe, the Middle East, Russia & Ukraine, Africa and the Americas to many other issues in the news.
Unrvaelling the Middle East podcast, however, is laser-focused on the analysis and history of the Middle East and its episodes do not necessarily follow current events.
