Doha Heat
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.

40+ countries, 600+ conversations - this is the life of aspiring travel writer Colleen Waterson, who stayed up late to chat about her journey to ask people around the world 3 questions. We get into what inspired her to pursue this dream and how she sustains the energy necessary to do something like this. Learn more about Colleen's project and participate here: www.bigsharedworld.com.

Born and raised in Qatar, this sister and brother open up about the simultaneous feeling of missing a bygone era in the country and enjoying the changes that have come. The conversation also drifts into exploring the evolving cultural norms within Qatar and some of the ways in which young Qataris are pioneers. We definitely will have to do part 2 since we only get a small sampling of the two’s expeditions to places like the Amazon, Mt. Kilimanjaro, and the Arctic Circle.
