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.

The team ventured outside of Doha for a special interview with head equestrian trainer, Claudia Bergers, at Al Uqdah Equestrian Complex. Many people probably had no idea how big horseback riding is in Qatar so we went to the best source. Claudia shares about her journey from the Netherlands to Qatar and gives us a tour of the facility.

Arriving in Qatar a few years ago after helping improve Dubai's transportation systems, Mark Thomson is quite the community man.

We also delve a bit into how we, as expats, can contribute positively to Qatar's future and why that is important.
