Just....wow

I can't tell you how much I love this show. And how long I've waited for something like it. It's essentially interviews about the lives of different Muslims from ALL walks of life - but the commentary and way they are presented is truly artistic. I love that it shows the diversity in our community and the many different faces of Muslims. I have cried and laughed and this is the podcast I have shared the most out of any I have ever listened to.

Masha’Allah!!!

No tears were shed during the listening of this new season though I could feel them in the last few episodes. All of the stories and people are beautiful. This podcast is the Anousheh Ansari effect of being detached from life on Earth while admiring and appreciating Earth from outer space type of feeling. What’s next? Hoping there will be more Tell Them I Am seasons, or for as long as possible. It’s just good to know that there is good in this world despite the hardships we all go through. Thank you and the whole TTIA team for bringing this to fruition.

Fabulous!

I’m so glad you did another season. Every episode fills my heart and gives me hope. Blessings to you. I’m going to miss this, but I’ll listen to them again and again throughout the year. ♥️
