About the show
“You Can Relate” or أحاديث بتشبهنا is a podcast that tackles and reviews
a work of art: book, movie, documentary not only to review it,
but to derive the main concepts out of it that everybody can relate to.
It aims to engage the audience in conversations that provoke their
thoughts and their feelings. To further enrich the conversation,
we host a guest each time to reflect and engage and present a different
view point on the topics tackled.
