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.

Literally Redefined

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.

We then move on to discussing what to name the podcast and come up with the MSTDFR podcast. We have the Nikola Tesla vs. Thomas Edison debate. Ammar laments the challenges he is facing with his children teaching them the Arabic language. Finally, Faisal schools us in linguistics.
