I am joined this episode by Yemeni Information Analyst Hisham Al-Omeisy. We talk about the Yemen Crisis. I was referred to Hisham by a past guest of the podcast, Jamila Hanan (episode 15 and 50). My knowledge of the Yemen crisis doesn’t go beyond what I see on mainstream media. In other words, I don’t know much. Hisham does an excellent job dissecting the crisis and sheds light on historical facts as well as misconceptions perpetuated by the mainstream media.
