Support Bulaq's 2023 Season
Help support the 2023 season of BULAQ, a podcast dedicated to Arabic literature in translation, hosted by journalist and book reviewer Ursula Lindsey and founding editor of ArabLit & ArabLit Quarterly, Marcia Lynx Qualey. Ursula records from Amman, Jordan, while Marcia is in Rabat, Morocco.
Bulaq is a labor of love. We started it in 2017 and have recorded 95 episodes so far. We’ve read hundreds of books and had dozens of writers and translators as guests. The podcast is produced and distributed by the wonderful folks at the podcast platform Sowt, but it is completely independent, with no support from grants or foundations and minimal advertising. We’ve always wanted it to be freely available to everyone, not limited to subscribers.
But it also requires investment on our part: software, equipment, and time.
If you'd like to help it keep going -- if you've enjoyed the show, discovered things here, and have found it useful -- then you can make a donation here. This will help with production costs, equipment costs, and all time we put into this – and allow us to get to our 100th episode and beyond. We really appreciate your support.
NOTE: As a special thank you, supporters will get a free ebook of Samira Azzam's short-story collection "Out of Time," translated by Ranya Abdelrahman.
