The website  is filled with interesting practical discussions of a dialect that is chronically under-covered compared to Egyptian and perhaps Levantine. This is truly a great resource for anyone interested in Morocco and the Moroccan dialect. 2 episodes to start off:

#1 – “MBS001 An explanation of the origin and usage of the words “mazyan” and “bizaf.” We also get to know about Abdessamed and the stereotypes American students and other Arabs have about Moroccan Arabic.
