    Episode 40 - The Dating Game

    Episode 40 - The Dating Game

    Is that the part two, the sister episode, the sequel of A Love Anthology? Why, yes it is! Hafsa and Istahil continue the conversations and ask their guests about how they perceive and experience dating. From finding someone you fancy to shooting your shot to first dates to dating apps. We got optimism, we got pessimism, we got straight up depressionism.
    Tune in for a rollercoaster of an episode.

    1 or 3 Dates? - Spirit of Ramadan ft Khadijah Thomas

    1 or 3 Dates? - Spirit of Ramadan ft Khadijah Thomas

    We're back after disappearing for a month. We decided to start with our 1 or 3 dates series early this year! 1 or 3 dates is our annual Ramadan series. This episode was sponsored by Ramadan & Juliette.

    In this episode, we have Khadijah Thomas, founder of Ramadan & Juliette (a small Black Muslim-owned Ramadan decorations shop). She told us about the inception of Ramadan and Juliette and the importance of getting into the spirit of Ramadan. We are always hyper-aware of the Holiday (Christmas) spirit, but how often do we make an active effort to feel Ramadan before its arrival? We talk about that and much more.

Great podcast

Love the podcast! Would it be possible to do some episodes in Somali? I’m losing my language and wish I could listen to more stories in Somali.

Much appreciated

Thanks for sharing your experiences.

Third Culture Kids FTW!

As someone who moved to Minnesota and discovered that there is a large Somali population down in Minneapolis, seeing the description for this show led me to a real quick subscribe. I wanted to hear what folks growing up as third culture kids thought about their place in the world, in the West, in their parents' home culture. And Abwaan Chronicles delivers that and more!

Their recent episodes have featured reflections on life during Ramadan (a particularly unusual year for it), the meaning of home for those living in that third culture space, the conclusion of a very strange decade, and lots of personal takes on all sorts of things happening around us. The academic dork was pleased to discover the show. The curious westerner in me even more so.

Give this one a shot. It's worth a listen!
