Buzzfeed’s See Something Say Something is a podcast where guests gather to drink chai, tell stories, and talk about being Muslim in America. Join host Ahmed Ali Akbar for a live taping of the podcast, co-presented with the Arab American National Museum, featuring stories and conversations about politics and pop culture.
This episode will feature an interview with poet, Hugo-nominated author of Throne of the Crescent Moon and writer for Marvel’s Black Bolt series Saladin Ahmed, as well as a panel with racial justice and human rights activist Asha Noor, Associate Professor in the Department of American Culture and Director of Arab and Muslim American Studies at the University of Michigan Evelyn Alsultany, and Co-Founder and Co-Director of the Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative (MuslimARC) Namira Islam.
Chai and sweets will be available to enjoy in the Courtyard prior to the live taping commencing in the Aliya Hassan Auditorium at 7:30 p.m.
See Something Say Something was named one of the best new podcasts of 2016 by The New York Times and iTunes. Hosted by BuzzFeed writer Ahmed Ali Akbar, the first season included episodes with Reza Aslan, comedian Zahra Noorbakhsh, and rapper Heems.
“Started just before the election, this interview-driven podcast explores the diversity of backgrounds and experiences that contribute to Muslim identity in America.”
— The New York Times, The Best New Podcasts of 2016
“Listening to See Something Say Something feels like a positive addition to the podcast therapy playlist.” — The New Statesman
