It’s unfiltered and uncensored, a chance for you to be a ‘fly on the wall’ listening in to a conversation between three journalists and critics of today’s ever too cosy media and public relations convergence masquerading as mainstream media news coverage. We push tough issues and ask tough questions that you want to see answered.

This week Denis, Phil, Dario and Ahmed discuss:

  • The Middle East and Egypt
    Four years ago Sunday the Egyptian Revolution began
  • Egypt has seen
    • one dictator overthrown,
    • military council leadership,
    • Muslim Brotherhood elected leadership leading to strict crackdowns,
    • Their subsequent overthrow and arrest by the military and
    • The rise of the ‘benevolent’ Sisi.
  • The US needed 11 years after 1776 to get their constitution in place
    • Where we are today?
    • What was it like to live through and witness from abroad?
