Ahmed and Iyad do a roundup of major news from 2018, and discuss the outlook for the world in 2019. Where were we vindicated over the last year? Which countries will have popular uprisings this year? Why are Arab countries normalising relations with Assad again after 8 years of brutality? What are the big corruption scandals we're anticipating? And is there a light at the end of the tunnel after repression?
Mentioned in this episode:
- Iyad's Oslo Freedom Forum speech
- The crazy animation of Saudi Arabia attacking Iran, disseminated by accounts linked to the government
