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.

Robotics in the GCC seem to be a hot topic these days, especially after our neighbors in Dubai announced the debut of some robo-cops...not the 90s classic type sadly. Qatar, not to be outdone, is also fostering a domestic robotics industry at Education City, the location of today's podcast. Tune in to learn about how one Texas A&M alum is fostering its growth and got inspired by Hollywood.
