    ‘East of La Brea’ (with Sameer Gardezi and Margari Aziza)

    Welcome to part two of…. MUSLIMS ON TV!!!! (now featuring an echo effect, naturally). We’re focusing on a web-series made with an antiracist model from Break the Room, Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative, and Powderkeg Media. “East of La Brea” focuses on Black and Bengali Muslim women in a context of a rapidly changing Los Angeles. Sameer Gardezi of Break the Room and Margari Aziza of Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative join us to discuss how they made the show.
    Patrons this month get access to additional conversation with Sameer and Margari for an insider perspective on Ramy, Patriot Act, and how the industry grapples with critique around gender and race. Find us at patreon.com/ahmedaliakbar. Thanks to our patrons for supporting the show.

    Netflix’s “Connected” (ft. Latif Nasser) and Hulu’s “Ramy” (ft. Shamira Ibrahim)

    Netflix’s “Connected” (ft. Latif Nasser) and Hulu’s “Ramy” (ft. Shamira Ibrahim)

    It’s time to talk about…. MUSLIMS ON TV!!! again. We’re joined by the host of the new Netflix science travel show, “Connected,” Latif Nasser. He’s also the Director of Research at Radiolab, so we talk to him about the shift from podcasts to video, the humility needed for science reporting, and his thoughts on Hulu’s “Ramy.” Then, we talk to culture writer Shamira Ibrahim about her writing on “Ramy” Seasons 1 and 2, Mahershala Ali's Tajweed, and why she enjoyed the show’s growth.
     
    This is shaping up to be a bit of a miniseries. Muslims on TV will return… next month! $10 patrons get access to full conversations with Latif and Shamira, which includes Latif’s journey into starting a Muslim journalist association after the election of Donald Trump.
    Follow Latif @latifnasser and watch “Connected” on Netflix.
