The New Arab Voice is our bi-weekly podcast bringing you compelling stories from the Middle East, North Africa and beyond.

This week on The New Arab Voice, we explore the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine, the impact that it is having in the Middle East. We examine how Middle Eastern countries have responded to the crisis and how relations with the likes of Russia and Ukraine have been shaped by events. 

Featuring interviews with , Inna Melnykovska from the Central European University (@ceu) Gerald M. Feierstein from the Middle East Institute (@MiddleEastInst), Murat Aslan (@dr_murat_aslan), Steven A. Cook (@stevenacook), and Ruslan Trad (@ruslantrad).

And then, we speak with Mona Iskander (@monaisk2010), a founding board member of the Arab and Middle East Journalist Association (@AMEJA), about the Western coverage of the war in Ukraine, and some of the unhelpful comparisons made to conflicts in the Middle East.


This podcast is produced by Hugo Goodridge (@hugogoodridge) and Rosie McCabe (@RosieMcCabe3). Music by Omar al-Fil (@elepheel). 

Other music by by Blue Dot Sessions
