It’s time to talk about…. MUSLIMS ON TV!!! again. We’re joined by the host of the new Netflix science travel show, “Connected,” Latif Nasser. He’s also the Director of Research at Radiolab, so we talk to him about the shift from podcasts to video, the humility needed for science reporting, and his thoughts on Hulu’s “Ramy.” Then, we talk to culture writer Shamira Ibrahim about her writing on “Ramy” Seasons 1 and 2, Mahershala Ali's Tajweed, and why she enjoyed the show’s growth.
This is shaping up to be a bit of a miniseries. Muslims on TV will return… next month! $10 patrons get access to full conversations with Latif and Shamira, which includes Latif’s journey into starting a Muslim journalist association after the election of Donald Trump.
Follow Latif @latifnasser and watch “Connected” on Netflix.
