The Mstdfr Show

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.

Stop Messing With the Hole

Nour Fetyani, Jeddah’s pre-eminent tree hugger, joins us on MSTDFR to talk to us about Mother Earth. We talk about the journey toward, and the struggle for, environmentalism in Saudi Arabia. We appreciate the balance of nature and talk about the need to protect that balance. And we discuss the the quality of our food and where it comes from.

Nour showed up with an upcycled braclet made out of crushed Nespresso capsule. Normally we geeked out on her trash. Nour then told us how she got into caring for the environment and Ammar somehow found a way to find similarities between Saudis and earth worms!


We also discuss Ozone depletion, climate change, the littering problem in Saudi, composting, the Pacific trash vortex, recycling and a lot more.
