    Saudi Arabia and Iran are two of the world's most powerful theocratic states. Both are Islamic, one Sunni and the other Shia. In this episode, we get into the differences in their systems of governance, geopolitical roles, and approach to the proxy war they have now been mired in for decades.

    There is a popular narrative among some that because of historical power dynamics and colonial history, non-white people cannot technically be racist. In this long-overdue episode, two people of color (that's right) unpack—and challenge—this notion.

    In this episode, we talk to Abdullah Gondal, who helps us look at Muhammad's traumatic childhood, how it may have shaped his personality, influenced his decisions, and determined his successes and flaws. The resulting picture of Muhammad may have you sympathizing with him while disputing his infallibility at the same time.

    Most Muslims think of Muhammad as the infallible messenger of God. Critics think of Muhammad as a cruel warlord. But what happens when we match descriptions of Muhammad from Islamic sources—the Quran, Hadith, and Seera—with what we know about neurology, psychology, and medicine today? Abdullah Gondal, producer of an upcoming explosive documentary on this topic joined us to talk about it. The resulting picture of Muhammad may have you sympathizing with him while disputing his infallibility at the same time.

    Ayatollah Khomeini was adamant in his time that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) remain distinct from the Iranian Republic. The IRGC's role, to Khomeini, was to protect the "republic" aspect of Iran. As Iranians prepare to go to the polls in June, it seems that this bulwark is all but certain to be shattered as the IRGC itself is gearing up—openly—to dictate not just who wins the election, but who replaces the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei after his death, violating Khomeini's "guardianship of the jurist" precedent. This could be a game changer. In this episode, we discuss aspects of this historic upcoming election that you won't hear in mainstream news.

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.
