Bulaq Episode 40: ‘The Revolution While Dreaming’

The latest episode of Bulaq focused around a collection of interviews with Mahmoud Darwish, titled Palestine as Metaphor:

We talk about a newly released collection of five compelling and highly quotable interviews with the great late Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish, titled Palestine as Metaphor, translated by Amira El-Zein and Carolyn Forché, which we link to recent protests in Lebanon and how they are being written about in Lebanese and international media, as well as the frightening day when the independent Egyptian news site Mada Masr’s offices were raided and editors detained. (All of Mada’s staff has now been released). This episode was partly recorded and produced in the offices of the Sowt network.
