Trump and the Nazis (Episode 12)

On this week’s The Mideast Beast podcast, hosts Molly Livingstone and Alex Giles take on the Nazis. It’s not a question of win or lose, but rather the battle of ‘fake news’. Together, the two discuss the role of ‘fake news’ when it comes to Trump, the Middle East, and new Neo-Nazis, that seem to be everywhere. So are they, what’s the lie, and will we ever get to the truth?

 

 

Are All Journalists Just Fake News Homosexuals? (Episode 11)

Burkini’s Back, Bitch (Episode 9)

What’s actually offensive these days? Burkinis, speedos, terrorism, or Trump’s White House roulette?

Gloves that Don’t Fit and Metal Detectors that Don’t Quit (Episode 8)

Who You Be Calling A Holy Site? (Episode 7)

On this episode of the The Mideast Beast Podcast, Molly and Alex explore the controversy of UNESCO’s seemingly innocent task of choosing holy sites. What the f*ck does it matter and who is so damn angry? More importantly, what the hell is UNESCO? It’s time to get educated.
