Hey! That's My Hummus!

We're the only hummus-themed podcast which is not a cooking show.

[99] Was Streep’s Leap Steep Enough?

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

We talk about all sorts of things: The Women’s March which Mike is attending this weekend (and of which Faiqa is attending one of 600+ sister marches), Meryl Streep’s acceptance speech for the Cecile B. DeMille award at the Golden Globes, and what happens when parents cut off a daughter financially due to her interracial relationship — and she initiates a GoFundMe campaign. What is the responsibility of those with privelege? Are we going far enough?

(3) Our next episode will be about intermarriage and interdating — whether between different races, religions or cultures. And we want to hear from you! What are your thoughts about the way your group (whatever that may be) sees committed relationships with those “on the outside?” Is it shunned? Welcomed? Do you have any stories to share? Let us know via social media — or email shiny@heythatsmyhummus.com if you’d like to share something without your name being attached. We may read some of these on air during our next episode.

[80] When you assume…

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

… you make an overstated cliche that everyone already knows.

This week we take a break from the usual review of current events with our commentary sprinkled in — and we talk about ourselves.  There is far more to each of us than “Jewish, male podcast host” and “Muslim female podcast host.” Those around us have made assumptions about who we are, what we stand for, and how we think. But as multi-faceted individuals, sometimes they don’t get it right.  Each of us took five points which we feel people have assumed incorrectly about us.

So? Listen! And also — let us know what assumptions people have made about you… Find us on Facebook or Twitter. Or click on the box below…

What assumptions do people make about you that are not true?

As we mentioned yesterday – Faiqa was in Atlanta promoting a book of essays about Hillary Clinton which she participated in. Take a look at the book here:

[72] Order in the Court! #DOMA #PaulaDeen #TrayvonMartin

Order in the court! Order in the court!
I’l have a hummus on rye, Your Honor… You know we had to go there.
We are all over the place this week, but the one place that’s common to our topics is the courtroom. We’re discussing the Supreme Court’s recent decision to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act and some of the language brought up in both the pending litigation against Paula Dean and George Zimmerman.

For clips and articles related to this week’s episode, don’t forget to check out our Facebook page and weigh in.

If you’ve got comments, questionable flattery and show ideas, you can also let us know on Facebook or tweet us @thatsmyhummus.
