This week on The New Arab Voice, Rosie McCabe (@RosieMcCabe3) joins us to discuss the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus and the steps being taken to by governments in the Middle East to prevent further infections. 

And then, we examine the recent coup in Sudan, and ask what's next for the country, and why does it experience so many military coups. Interviews with Kholood Khair (@KholoodKhair),  Yezid Sayigh (@SayighYezid), and Jihad Mashamoun (@ComradeJihad). 

And finally, producer Aisha Aldris (@aishaaldris) looks ahead to the upcoming MDL Beast festival in Saudi Arabia, and asks if the festival will witness the same levels of sexual harassment  that occurred in 2019.
