Middle East Mediated asks the questions about the Syrian Revolution, the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and the intricacies of Lebanese and Iranian politics you’ve been too afraid to ask. It unearths the real stories of people connected to the Middle East in interesting and sometimes unexpected ways - a beer brewer from Beirut, an un-orthodox Jew, a Muslim ultra-marathon runner, an advocate for Afghan refugees in Iran and many more.
Each week, two guests will choose a “mediated” item - a tweet, YouTube video, article or image - to kick off a lively and informative interview that will demystify what’s going on in the Middle East, taking you behind the news to the stories of ordinary people and their history and experience of this complex, and often misunderstood, region.
This series is hosted by Swinburne Uni journalism lecturer and author Saba Bebawi and Middle East writer and consultant Marika Sosnowski.
