  1. An excerpt from this episode.


Veteran broadcaster Paul Holmes brings his trademark stream of introspection and acerbic wit to the ancient cultures of Yemen, drawing much mileage from the country’s many curiosities; soldiers on patrol holding hands; the high volume manner of daily conversation and the ubiquitous Khat: a chewing plant known for its amphetamine-like effects. Ending his trip with a drive across the foreboding Empty Quarter (“Al-Qaeda country”), Holmes is nonetheless treated “warmly, hospitably, and generously” by all he meets, much to his surprise.
