Mstdfr (Arabic: مستدفر) is a Middle Eastern geeky podcast spoken in "Arablish". Every week, Ammar and Rami host different regional guests to talk about various topics including: current affairs, culture, technology, media, challenges facing the new Arab generation, and everything in between.
Rami shares with us his geeky yet mischievous wifi tethering hotspot name. The MSDTFR gang discusses being multicultural, conformity in Saudi Arabia vs. USA. Ammar then segues us into TV and media consumption with children. We discussed Naqatube, the video website preferred by Muslim conservatives. Rami rants about Internet censorship in Saudi Arabia and it’s adverse effect on making parents passive with their children’s internet consumption.
Omair tells us of the story of how Hashim grilled him in an engineering job interview. Rami asks what would be the most watched video if Youtube existed in 1900. We discuss the misuse of the word ‘literally’ and how the word has been redefined in the English language.
Our first ever episode, where we really did not know what we were doing. All this equipment that we barely know how to use, and just Rami, Ammar, Faisal, and Omair blabbering on mics.
