Interviews like this one with Moe Fakhro, who opens up about his experiences studying in the US, learning English via video games, and his recent adventures on Mount Kilimanjaro, are what podcasters live for! This episode has to be one of my favorites so far, and I hope you enjoy it - so nice to come out knowing someone much better.

The idea of leaving a comfort zone can make all the difference between achieving fulfillment in life and not living up to one's potential. We discuss some of the hindrances to reaching success and ways in which you can push yourself for a better life.


After a week off to recover from the flu, we're back with Kev from ILoveQatar.net to share the best events coming up this week. Just as the weather is cooling down (finally, am I right?) there is so much happening in Qatar: musicals, outdoor fitness events, and much more!

Make sure to check-out ILoveQatar.net for the full details on all the events and those we had to skip: www.iloveqatar.net.

Dave Moreland and Carl Windley of the Qatar International Amateur Football League and Legacy Sports & Events drop by to tell us about their long-standing love for all things sports and 13 year stays in Qatar. We also get into what the football scene is like here in Qatar (hint: it's booming!), and they tease me about my lack of knowledge on the subject.
