Doha Heat (general)
Doha Heat is a weekly, communal podcast created for every type of individual who currently calls Qatar home, has in the past, or may one day.

@DohaHeat is the community podcast here in #Qatar, so when we heard about this regular #event @paintqatar we felt we had to share it with the Doha Heat #community. Joe Newnham from @TrinityQatar explains the whole concept and how it is appealing to all ages. Listen to the podcast to hear how you can book a place and get 10% discount.

These long summer holidays really do not lend themselves to sustaining a podcast, huh? We return with a new episode, which features some familiar voices: Producer Andrew Clark and Ginger Camel Managing Director Stefan Lindberg-Jones. The two discuss how the podcast got started, its ups and downs, and the next chapter.

Special thank you to all of our listeners; without you all the podcast would never have made it this far. Do not be shy about getting in touch if you would like to be a potential guest.

See you around the sandbox. - Andrew

A man. An Instagram page. And lots of ambition - these things aptly sum-up today's guest, Mohannad Bitar.

The interview delves into what sustains his passion for this project and where he hopes to take it next.
