Hey! Thanks for stopping by. If you aren't familiar with Kerning Cultures, here's a little about what we do.

As children of the Middle East, we have grown up surrounded by regional and international media that pigeonholes the Middle East and North Africa into politics. We tell the kinds of stories in which we can actually see ourselves, the kinds of stories we want to discuss with our friends over warm cups of coffee on cozy sofas. Because we love stories - really good stories, and there are so many from our region just waiting to be told.

We release 2 episodes a month, here are some of our favourites:




"'This American Life' for the Middle East" – The Guardian

"Kerning Cultures is leading the UAE podcasting scene" – Gulf News

"A homegrown podcast from two women determined to explore stories from the Middle East, beyond what you see in the newspaper headlines." – New York Magazine
