The most engaging guests + conversations

This podcast gives you the opportunity to engage with a wide range of issues that are often neglected/ignored/mistreated in the mainstream media. The guests are always so interesting and the conversation is always refreshing and truthful with no holding back.

Please let your guest speak

Jameela repeatedly talks over her guest and makes the interview about herself. Frustrating to listen to.

Munroe ep x

Adore adore this - so informative, have learnt TONS. Thank you so so much. Only small thing is did feel a bit like Jameela was talking over and for Munroe and not really allowing her to speak as much as other guests (probably bcos they’re good friends and she knows M’s story too)!
