I have a friend who used to always complain.. and she was constantly tired and was rarely able to get a good night’s sleep and I always used to believe – and tell her – that the reason was because before going to sleep every night, she would turn on debate and talk shows whether 90 minutes or El3ashera Masa’an or those Orbit talk shows and listen to debates for at least an hour or two until she fell asleep.  Whenever I would go to spend the night, I would have an extremely hard time sleeping because of the constant noise of the people talking and debating (and you know how people debate in Egyptian and Arab radio and television – I compare with the BBC radio where the hosts rarely raise their voice and the people interviewed hardly ever interrupt each other).  No matter how many crime scene and hospital series I watch after a long hard day at work, I manage to get to sleep fine and with very few nightmares.  If there’s a really disturbing episode, I switch on to a cartoon or a short comedy series before sleeping just to change my thoughts. Now, for the past three days, my parents have been watching talk shows on television.. related to the recent niqab issue or the Shobeir/M.Mansour rivalry or whatever other topic raised in the Egyptian media.  Frankly, to me, it’s a total headache!  The voices of the host and the guests are ugly and nagging and simply prove my point that you will definitely get lack of sleep and constant nightmares if you listen to this in general and specifically before going to sleep.



  1. Yes, yes, yes! I always tell the same thing to my husband. Not to mention that is is also very depressing and changes the balance of energy in the home to a very negative and angry one.

  2. Exactly. I have been in a very bad mood since I got home yesterday and I can’t get these people’s voices out of my head!
