Inside Expo – Expo anecdotes and Dubai’s golden ring

As Expo 2020 Dubai enters its final days, the latest episodes of the Inside Expo podcast look at some of the pop culture that has stemmed from past Expos, as well as the fascinating story of the gold ring that inspired Expo 2020 Dubai’s logo.

In ‘Down the Rabbit Holes of World Expos’, author Charles Pappas shares a series of interesting anecdotes from past Expos, while considering which parts of Expo 2020 Dubai will be spoken about years from today.

‘Saruq Al-Hadid and Dubai’s Golden Ring’ meanwhile recounts the incredible story of the ancient ring discovered in an archaeological site south of Dubai, which inspired the Expo 2020 Dubai’s logo, and has become part of the Expo’s identity and lore.


Inside Expo is a podcast series by Expo 2020 Dubai and produced by Kerning Cultures Network.
