Now, God is dying—and it's time to dispose of his remains. From the pits of Hell, Satan sends two puppets of the imperialist West and the Zionist Jews against God, Islam, and tiny kittens to bring you their propaganda and conspire for a new world order.

    From Afghanistan to Iraq to Syria, US intervention has yielded results and outcomes that have at best been disappointing, and at worst, devastating. And the costs—in time, money, and blood—have woken many Americans up to the reality that US intervention in foreign affairs may not be as effective or beneficial as it was once thought to be. But what would the alternative look like? We explore this and more in this episode.

    With Texan lawmakers being branded the "American Taliban" for their regressive anti-abortion law, questions are coming up about whether this comparison is even accurate. On the one hand, Islam sees abortion very differently than Christianity. On the other, the status of women in Texas (despite the new law) remains very different from the status of women under the Taliban. What are the views of the world's two largest religions on abortion? In this episode, we get into it.

    The world has been shaken with the horrific images of everyday Afghanis trying to flee, hide, do anything to avoid the Taliban, who have taken over the country in barely a couple of weeks. The lives of many translators, humanitarian aid workers, and others who worked with the US are at risk. Afghan women and girls face a bleak future, and that's an understatement. In this episode, we talk about these events with Jason Brisebois, a former member of the Canadian Forces Protective Services Unit who worked with several NGOs in Kabul and Kandahar, and helped facilitate aid shipments to charities and girls schools.

    According to the World Bank, Lebanon's current economic crisis is one of the world's worst in over 150 years. With a currency that has lost 95% of its value in the last two years, food costs up by 700% during the same time, citizens being forced into refugee camps, and no answers or accountability for the explosion last year that killed 200 and injured thousands, Lebanon faces a moment of truth that could make or break it. In this episode, we break it all down.

Turn taking

I love the podcast. However it seems like each person (both hosts and guest) is so eager to make their point that they don’t always listen to each other. There is a lot of interrupting and not a lot of conversational turn taking. But I do love the content.

EricaEXS ,

Love it!

Great podcast! Surprisingly very educational. It’s nice to learn about islam theology without religious bias. Of course the guests and ideas are great as well. My only tiny tiny criticism is that Ali and Armin tend to talk over each other, I understand why though

tanveerxd ,

The topics are interesting, but..

I don’t know the name of the speakers but one of them seems to talk way too much with most of it being just repetition. Had to skip the entirety of his speech.

The other dude though is much more concise and informed.

Edit: the annoying dude is Armin. He talks way too much and doesn’t even let the other dude finish. Just jams in while someone is talking.
