Nicole and I sit down to talk about the big "C" - no, not cookie, but cancer as October is breast cancer awareness month. We get into the lifestyle and nutrional changes we can make in order to hopefully lessen the chances of developing cancer. There is also a lot of great resources being shared here for those who are undergoing treatments or those listeners coping with a loved one's process.


Hope you are ready for an eventful week ahead because we have got so much to highlight in today's episode! There is a little bit for everyone here, whether you are looking for Halloween-themed outings, intercultural festivals, or opportunities to nerd out.


Miles from the Edge joins us to discuss the latest business news from around Qatar. We showcase the Msheireb downtown revitalization project and the much-talked about issue of traffic in Doha (there is hope for us yet, promise). The anticipated rise of action sports like skateboarding, kiteboarding, and others also gets some attention.
