The powerful first season of Arabic celebrity mental health podcast Asrar El Nafs featured the likes of Arwa Gouda, Tara Emad, May El Gheity, and striker Ahmed Hassan Kouka. The show afforded listeners a rare and intimate glimpse into the psyches of their favourite stars.

Following a one year hiatus the podcast - hosted by Ally Salama, founder of a media company specializing in mental health - is finally back and this time as part of the popular podcast platform Podeo.

“We’re aiming to be very vulnerable and showcase the reality of human beings,” Salama tells #CairoScene. “Often times people hide under the facade of celebrity status, but the reality is that COVID-19 has made us all feel more human regardless of who you are.”

Salama has also teamed up with Eed Wahda, an Egyptian social support platform tackling gender-based violence, and will be raising donations on their behalf through a link on their podcast channel.
