Amazing podcasts with great personalities

I love your podcast bc you guys concisely speak on a the topic at hand. You speak about relevant topics that affect people on a macro and micro scale. Whether it’s popular culture or even with regards to deen. I personally like listening to podcasts with multiple members, like Abwaan, bc it encourages insightful dialogue, especially considering how different all of your lived experiences are. I also love the Abwaan shorts where it’s as simple as two people having a conversation. I just love your podcast through and though. Real quality content you guys have and it makes my heart even more warm when it’s by fellow Somali sisters. Love love love. I can’t wait for it to get the exposure and range it deserves 👏🏾

Sumsum✌🏿 ,

Love the podcast!

I really enjoy listening to the Abwaan Chronicles and being apart of their very important and diverse topics. I love that they invite many guests to speak on most topics. Their platform facilitates great discussions and they really do a great job at making me feel included. I absolutely love the time, dedication and quality work they put into their production. Keep up the great work ladies! Big fan!
