    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.

    M Train: Protests & the Pandemic #BLM

    M Train: Protests & the Pandemic #BLM

    CW: Police Violence
    Abolitionists protests are sweeping the nation as the COVID19 pandemic continues to ravage Black communities. Black Muslims in all fields are at the forefront during this historical moment. We spoke to Black Muslim Covid Coalition member Professor Donna Auston and frontline nurse “Lady” to discuss social movements, Black Muslim activism on police and prison and abolition, and the disproportionate effect the pandemic is having on black folks. Plus: our sister podcast, Brooklyn, USA, sent us a voice note from a protestor who was arrested during the George Floyd protests in june.
    This is the final episode of the M Train miniseries. See Something Say Something will return after a break. Thank you all for listening.

    M Train: Death & Grieving in Muslim New York

    M Train: Death & Grieving in Muslim New York

    Burying a loved one is never easy. But for Muslims New Yorkers, the price of land, gentrification, and ritual practices complicates an already difficult process. As a result, most Muslims in the 5 boroughs tend to be buried hours away from their homes, at cemeteries in Long Island or New Jersey. With the death rate in NYC soaring due to COVID-19, Muslim funeral homes have borne the burden of a crisis that developed long before quarantine. How does one grapple with saying goodbye to our loved ones when burial is less than ideal?
    To answer these questions, we speak to housing policy expert Lena Afridi about losing and burying her father over a year ago. Then, Imam Khalid Latif of ICNYU shares some of the pressures that funeral homes in New York are facing during the COVID-19 crisis.
    M Train releases bi-weekly and each episode focuses on New York City metro area and the stories of American Muslims that can be found on and off the subway.

    M Train: Coronavirus & Chaabi

    M Train: Coronavirus & Chaabi

    Corona has thrown M Train (and all of society) for a bit of a loop. So we threw the script out for this episode and called up Dr. Ahmed Hozain, a surgical resident and researcher currently working in NYC, to talk about COVID-19, convincing your boomer parents to stay home, and virtual jum’ahs. Then, we returned to a simpler time before pre-isolation, when we interviewed North African dance teacher Esraa Wardah about her work decolonizing dance classes and building spaces that decenter whiteness.
     
    Because of Corona, M Train may experience some delays. Please be patient.

    M Train: Roti & Sorrel in Brooklyn

    M Train: Roti & Sorrel in Brooklyn

    This episode, we head to Brooklyn to eat some Trinidadian food and talk about the dialogue between Black, Desi, Carribbean, and Muslim cultures within the island and its diaspora. We pick up some dhalpuri, buss-up-shot, and doubles and then wash it all down with sorrel, a tart, hibiscus flower drink. Throughout the episode, we talk about the way Trinidadian cuisine is a dialogue between Indian and African cultures and why the roti shop is as much an icon of NYC Muslim culture as the halal cart. Featuring: Johnny Ali and Kerrie Bissoon of the Utica Avenue Ali’s Roti and fashion designer Nzinga Knight of Brooklyn Brewed Sorrel.
