Tonight is a special episode with Ahmed Abou Taleb, our Egypt insider. We chat about the current delicate political and cultural situation in Egypt. Is this a Revolution or a Coup, or maybe there isn’t even a proper definition for it yet. Find out from the inside what is going on in Egypt right now.
In the Intro the guys talk about the latest Google treat, Stephen Basset on AM Radio, Egypt, New Exodus Reality Tour with Scott and John, and many other interesting topics. See links below for more info.

World Today with Sean Leslie CKNW 980
I really want to thank Ahmed for coming to the show & share with us an inside perspective of these rather complex developments in Egypt. I think he’s right that people want to jump into the ‘easy’ explanations –“oh, it’s a coup & the military are pulling the strings of the people” “oh it’s a revolution & the military answered the people’s calling”– without failing to see that what’s happening in Egypt is something new.
Perhaps some of the drive behind this novelty is what helped kickstart the social change in Egypt in the 1st place: instant digital feedback, coupled with millions of people empowered with the ability to share their own perspective with the rest of the world.
I’m looking forward to his next appearance 🙂
We were lucky to stumble upon him, hopefully now he will become a regular staple on the show.
