SOAS Leads the Conversation: Islamophobia in UK Institutions
This two-part episode looks at issues of Islamophobia on university campuses, in the media and across political institutions. I was fortunate to be able to speak to Professor Alison Scott-Baumann (SOAS) and Professor Mathew Guest (Durham University) about their Islam on Campus research. My colleague Dr Rob Faure Walker had an engaging discussion with Zeeshan Ali from MEND, and Richard McNeil-Wilson from the European University Institute in Florence.

Panjab In My Eye // Episode 12
Back by popular demand, Panjabi In My Eye Episode 12. Giving exposure to some recent and not so recent releases, flips and mixes. Featuring artists such as Straight Bank and CheemaBeatz amongst others.
Indian farmers sit steadfast at Delhi against the centre in opposition to the three farm acts passed by the Parliament of India. This episode is published on the 140th birthday of Chacha Ajit Singh (23-Feb-1881), anti-colonial steppa and uncle of Bhagat Singh, who led the 'Pagri Sambhal Jatta' movement against the British anti-farmer 'Punjab Colonisation Act' 1906. 'Pagri Sambhal Jatta', a song by Banke Daya, has been embedded in the Panjabi psyche as a chant of resistance. The ballad has made a comeback over a century later at the current farmer protests at the borders of Delhi.
