Time Out Dubai, the intelligent guide to life in the city, presents Straight From The Camel’s Mouth, an irreverent, informative discussion on life and living in the UAE.

Latest Episodes

Superclub Dubai

When was your last big night out? Dubai is fill of them, riddled with them you might say, and among swathes of fantastic bars and clubs you’re bound to find one that tickles your fancy. And the chances are that the guests on this week’s episode of The Big Listen have either hosted you, or played music for you. We’ve got Sara Stosic from the brains behind two of the city’s biggest night clubs Drai’s and WHITE Dubai (Add-Mind), as well as Adam Graca, Dubai’s best DJ (officially, according to the Time Out Dubai Music & Nightlife Awards 2019). Sara and Adam join Tim Skinner, Head of Video Content, and Reema Rahman, Nightlife & Communities Manager, to chat everything about the Dubai nightlife scene. How has it grown over the last five or ten years, what makes a top night out and how is Dubai now being viewed among the world’s elite clubbing destinations. If you’re looking towards your next big night out, give this a listen.

Going vegan in Dubai

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.)

Football in the UAE

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 t...

Behind The Scenes At Brunch

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 episod...

Dubai's Growing Theatre Scene

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.

Comedy in the UAE

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. Please reme...

Celebrity Chefs In Dubai

Dubai is known for its magnificent restaurants, and it's no surprise that an increasing number of high-profile chefs are making their way over to the emirate, setting up some magnificent new restaurants in the process. From Gordon Ramsay, to Simon Rimmer, David Myers, Guy Fieri, Alain Ducasse and Massimo Bottura (the man behind the world's number one restaurant in 2018, Osteria Francescana), the city is full of big name chefs and their equally well-known restaurants. One of those is the UK's Jason Atherton, who runs Michelin-starred restaurant Pollen Street Social in London and Marina Social right here in Dubai. Alongside Jason, Simon Ritchie, Editor of Caterer Middle East, Amy Mathieson and Scott Campbell from Time Out Dubai chat about why top-name chefs are coming to Dubai, Michelin stars (especially for Emirati restaurants), veganism and what it means to be a "celebrity chef". Stay tuned for more episodes of The Big Listen coming soon, covering subjects like veganism, football in...

Rent In Dubai

If you're looking to rent in Dubai, there's never been a better time. For anyone trying to find an apartment, or a villa, prices in the city have never been more in favour of tenants, and there are some bargains to be had.

We've got Property Finder and Savills, two of the city's top property authorities, in to the Time Out Dubai studio to discuss one of the biggest topics in the market today. Stay tuned for more episodes of The Big Listen coming soon, covering subjects like prices, the most affordable neighbourhoods, the most popular neighbourhoods, and the best emerging neighbourhoods too. Check us out every fortnight, with episodes available on YouTube, Soundcloud, iTunes, Google Podcasts or wherever you get your pods.
