Dispatch podcast: Egypt's prisoners in suspended animation

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly podcast exploring the biggest stories from the Middle East and beyond

Welcome to Dispatch, our weekly podcast looking at the biggest stories in the Middle East, North Africa and beyond.

This week, we talk about what the global crash in oil prices will do to Saudi Arabia’s economy, how North African countries are tackling the coronavirus outbreak during Ramadan, and the sudden death of a young filmmaker jailed in Egypt for mocking the president.

We’re joined by MEE editor-in-chief David Hearst, North Africa editor Mélanie Matarese and associate professor of political science at Long Island University Dr Dalia Fahmy.

Dispatch is a weekly podcast from Middle East Eye.
