This show, while a little unpolished, does a great job of discussing less talked about issues in the Middle East and providing historical and cultural context to them. If you want to gain a greater understanding of the Middle East this is a good place to start

As someone who lives in the Middle East I can say that Mike and Danny are exteremly knowledgable. The discussions are very informative and their recurring disagreements give a feeling that the listeners get a balanced picture of the events discussed.
