it's interesting that the guests mention some limited number of countries in the middle east as middle east. i would like to ask you to change the subject of your podcast because it's not about middle east. it's about some favarite countries! and i didn't get what i expected to hear and learn!!

Great content. I'd really love to transcribe your podcasts. People who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, non-native speakers, or suffer from auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder may have trouble following a fast conversation. Transcription provides an avenue for them to absorb everything you are putting out. My email is Thank you.

I was expecting more out of it, but can't deny that I learned some new things. Looking forward to the next one. Some topics I am interested in are change management, future of office workspaces, future of documentation etc.
