Saudi Arabia is still a blind spot on the map for most people. Nahostcast takes you with us on a backpacking trip to this long closed country, where an incredibly fast social change is unfolding right in front of our eyes, and tells you about the personal encounters with the Saudi people.
Last Friday, on January 13th, the ruler of Oman Sultan Qabus bin Said passed away. Nahostcast had only in December recorded an episode on the country and didn’t foresee this development. But in order to understand what this loss means to a country like Oman, it is even more important to provide an insight into its political and societal system.
