My new favorite Yemeni TV show is Hikayat Hadramia, which basically consists of a friendly Hadrami guy touring key cultural and historical sites in the province. Refreshing view of a Yemen overshadowed by the conflict.

We’re hiring in Early Medieval History, ca. 300-800 CE! This would be a great post for a Byzantine or early Islamic historian.
