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.

Fiona Lovatt, a woman whose heart shows no boundaries had no idea what she would be faced with, upon her arrival in Nigeria. A four month time frame, books in hand and a hope to spread her love of education, Fiona soon realized her true life's purpose. Nearly five years and five separate initiatives later, she shows no signs of slowing down. Join Fiona on her journey as she aids the children of Borno and internally displaced persons (just to name a few), rebuild their lives after fleeing the terrors of Boko Haram.

I am sure many of us at one time or another in their life have written a poem or some lyrics to express themselves. I am certain we did this in private, and not many of us shared our creativity. Now you can learn more about developing your skill in poetry writing and writing music, with the help of a new group called Words & Strings (http://www.wordsandstrings.xyz), set up by Amin Isaac & Elmoiz.

With so many people being affected by cancer in different ways these days, either through knowing someone close to them, a friend of a friend, or actually having cancer themselves, it’s not something you can ignore, and it won’t  go away if we stick our heads in the sand. Self testing and regular check-ups are important for all of us and Breast Cancer Awareness Month is great reminder about taking care of ourselves and the importance of supporting others.

Listen to our inspirational special guest Sandee Thompson, who took on breast cancer herself and walked away with a bilateral mastectomy. Sandee shows us that if you are diagnosed with the Big C, it’s not the end of the world, and can in fact be a new beginning. Sandee can be contacted directly at sandee_t@yahoo.com

If you have been in Qatar for over a year or so you would understand that sometimes finding things in shops or knowing what the procedure is with official paperwork can be a little frustrating at times and confusing, so generally you turn to your work colleagues or friends for help and advice. Now there is a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/579287658767294/  and website https://wwhidoha.com/ When, Where & How in Doha which brings together the Qatar community to help each other with relevant information you want to know. Sean Garret founding partner talks to @dohaheat about how the Facebook page came about, the amazing response from the Qatar community, the strange questions and the future for the Facebook site & website.

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
