    Going vegan in Dubai

    29/05/2019 Duração: 48min

    It seems like veganism has absolutely exploded in Dubai in the last 12 to 18 months. And it has, with restaurants now providing more options than ever to anyone in the city living on a plant-based diet. And to discuss the growth of veganism in Dubai, we've got in two special guests from some of the city's best-known vegan restaurants and communities to go through it all. So whether you're after the best restaurants to eat vegan, or the best supermarkets where you can pick up some produce, or if you're looking for vegan shoes (really) - you'll find it in today's episode of The Big Listen. We'll go over dining out, eating in, shopping, the vegan lifestyle, philosophies, vegan life hacks, meat substitutes and a whole bunch more, so listen up for the top tips. (And, yes, that is a vegan pizza in the thumbnail.)

    Having had one of their most successful performances in the AFC Asian Cup in recent decades, with Al Ain making it to the final of the Club World Cup against Real Madrid, and with the national-level game in the UAE gaining more commercial interest than ever, is this a golden era for football in the country? In this episode of The Big Listen, we chat about the national and domestic level of football in the UAE after recent times of unprecedented success, and bring in Chris Brown from It’s Just Football to join resident footy fans Tim Skinner (Head of Video Content) and Dean Wilkins (Editor, Time Out DXB). The three talk about the international success of the UAE after hosting the AFC Asian Cup in 2019 and how it can translate a semi-final appearance to a tournament-winning team in years to come. They also chat about youth football in the UAE, coaching at grass-roots level and how Dubai residents can, firstly, go to watch the big Dubai teams in the UAE Pro League and, secondly, how to go about getting involv

    Behind The Scenes At Brunch

    17/04/2019 Duração: 30min

    Brunch is one of Dubai’s most famous institutions. Every weekend, thousands of residents flock to the city’s restaurants to make the most of package deals that are not just economical (depending on where you go), but often dish up way more than just food. Whether it’s coastal vibes, live music, karaoke or inflatable sumo wrestling, nowadays brunch is an all-encompassing tradition that is available practically every day, coming in all shapes and sizes. But how does one of the city’s biggest brunches come together every single week? What goes on behind the scenes to make it a show-stopping foodie favourite? We sat down with Monica Metzger, who’s the F&B Director for two of the major hotels in Dubai Marina – The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina, as well as Le Méridien Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina. In this episode of The Big Listen, we go behind the scenes at brunch, and find out what goes into these absolute spectacles. You can listen to the whole episode on iTunes, Google Podcasts

    The Big Listen Episode 4 - Dubai's Growing Theatre Scene

    03/04/2019 Duração: 53min

    If you've ever had a passing interest in theatre, musicals, operas or the arts in general, you've probably paid a visit to Dubai Opera during your time in the emirate. If you've not, then you most certainly should. Having been the home to dozens of musicals, operas, theatrical performances, rock gigs, concerts, orchestral ensembles and more in the two-and-a-half-years since its 2016 opening, Dubai Opera came from nowhere to establish itself as the city's premier destination for fans of the arts. Jasper Hope is the Opera's Chief Executive, and having spent seven years as the Chief Operating Officer at the Royal Albert Hall in London, we spoke to the man himself about taking on the role of launching Dubai Opera, and how he and his team go about bringing world-class productions to Dubai, like Phantom of the Opera, coming to Dubai later this year. We hear how a massive production comes together, how it's found, booked and what we can hope to see on the Opera's stage later this year.

    The Big Listen Episode 3: Comedy in the UAE

    20/03/2019 Duração: 34min

    With celebrity comedians appearing in Dubai with increasing regularity (recent months have seen Dave Chappelle perform, with Michael McIntyre on the way in April), and long-established comedy clubs continuing to appeal to international comics, where does comedy currently stand in Dubai? What does comedy mean in one of the most multi-cultural cities in the world? How does comedy build cultural understanding, and how do vastly different cultures learn more about each other through it? This episode of The Big Listen looks to understand just that, and has got two ideally positioned guests in for the chat. Ali Al Sayed is an Emirati stand-up comedian, who also runs Dubomedy, a stand-up comedy training school which has placed successful comics into TV programmes and comedy clubs around the world. Ali is joined by Gail Clough, co-founder of The Laughter Factory, a comedy club which has been bringing some of the top names in international comedy to the UAE for the last 22 years.
