About Joey Ayoub

Patreon page for The Fire These Times and Hummus For Thought.

Each week, Joey Ayoub brings you conversations at the intersection of politics, culture and the environment. Named after the James Baldwin book 'The Fire Next Time', this is a podcast about tackling the 21st century.

Guests have so far included Mashrou' Leila's Hamed Sinno, Peter Pomerantsev, Molly Crabapple, Musa Okwonga, Eliot Higgins, Saleem Haddad, Yousef Kekhia, Wafa Mustafa, Mariam Barghouti, Peter Kalmus, Zecharias Zelalem and Shui-yin Sharon Yam, among many more.

The podcast is entirely independent. I am its researcher, host, producer and editor.

Hummus For Thought was launched in Lebanon in the context of the 2011 Arab Spring and is currently a monthly newsletter released on the 1st Sunday of each month in which I give you healthy doses of updates and recommendations.

In addition to the labor required to produce the podcast and websites, donations go towards research material, technical stuff, paying translators and artists, and other you-need-to-pay-to-get-things-done stuff, Patreon also takes a 5% cut.
