Since Ramadan began, TV shows have been all everyone talks about. Don’t get us wrong; we are obsessed with all the new series being screened right now as well. However, some people simply don’t have the time to commit to a whole show or are overwhelmed by the emergence of so many programmes all at once.

With that said, here are some alternative options to kill time while fasting other than being glued to your screen. Pull out your headphones or connect your speaker and put any of these mind-broadening Arab-based podcasts on.
