Ep. 26 | Umm Zakiyyah Talks Taboo
I had the pleasure and honor of speaking with independent Islamic author, Umm Zakiyyah about her novels, short film and the challenges she faces writing for the global Muslim community. We also discussed anti-Blackness in the Muslim American community and the controversy that was stoked by Sheikh Hamza Yusuf's remarks at RIS 2016.

Ep. 25 Arab In America With Khaled Beydoun
Khaled A. Beydoun is a professor of law, a public commentator, writer, and critical race theory scholar. A native of Detroit, Beydoun is a Critical Race Theory scholar, Professor Beydoun's scholarship examines the racial construction of Arab and Muslim American identity, criminal and national security policing, counter-radicalization and the intersection of race, religion and citizenship. His work has been featured in top law journals, including the California Law Review, the Michigan Journal of Race and Law, the Stanford Journal of Civil Rights & Civil Liberties, and more.
We cover several timely topics in this conversation, including racism within the Muslim American community and the Black Lives Matter movement; intersectionality; alliances across racial and ethnic lines; the LGBTQ question; what Muslim and non-Muslim Arabs can do to strengthen the diaspora, and more.

Ep. 22 | Facebook Firestorm
I asked followers on Facebook: "If your father took on a second wife without your mother's consent, how would you deal with it?" Can you guess how the conversation went? Tune in to hear my response to the speakers' commentary on this taboo question.
Ep. 21 | Playboy, Noor Tagouri And Why It Even Matters
Why has Noor Tagouri’s decision to collaborate with a historically overtly pornographic magazine proved problematic? Why is the Muslim community so divided on the matter?
There are several issues at play here, and because her decision raises both questions and implications for Muslim Americans at large, it’s important to clarify what these issues are.

Informative and authentic
Stumbled upon this podcast on accident and I’m absolutely in awe of how well articulated, informative and relevant this podcast is to Muslims not just Arabs in America.
There is no podcast on the internet that is more honest, pure, or raw, than The Between Arabs Project. Listening to the soothing voice of Nour, coupled with the ferocity of her topics, is a marriage whose wedding I want to attend every day.
I don't waste time with many blogs, podcasts, youtube channels, etc., but I make an effort to invest my time in listening to the organic conversations Nour and her guests have, and my investment has not disappointed me.

Let's talk taboo!
This podcast was one of the first I listened to when I was curious about starting my own. I truly love how raw the conversations are because god knows we lack openness in our communities when it comes to topics that effect us the most.
