You won’t find a better Egypt analyst in the business than Tim Kaldas. He’s a fellow at the Tahrir Institute for Middle East policy in Cairo, a visiting professor at Nile University in Cairo, and a professional wedding photographer that you should hire for all of your matrimonial needs. Tim’s research focuses on transitional politics in Egypt, regime survival strategies, U.S.-Egypt relations, and much more. His commentary and analysis has been featured on CNN, the BBC, Al Jazeera, and many other media outlets. Tim and I talked about what caused the Egyptian uprisings in 2011, what’s happened since then, what potentially lies ahead, the many ways in which regional security is a total mess, and how a late-90’s rock and roll song sheds light on the problems in present-day Egypt.
