    3. The Greater Freedom by Alya Mooro (w/ Dina Macki) Part 1 of 2

    In our first episode of the decade, we’re talking to chef/hustler extraordinaire Dina Macki about the much-anticipated debut by Alya Mooro, “The Greater Freedom: Life as a Middle Eastern Woman Outside the Stereotypes”. And we had so much to say we couldn’t possibly fit it into one episode, so expect a follow up.  In this segment, we talk about growing up brown, the “invisible jury” and the struggle of living that in between life.  Production assistant: Samantha Petty
