[82] What Happens on Campus…

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

… doesn’t necessarily stay on campus.

This week’s episode goes back to college — as we discuss some issues which have been newsworthy lately but have also been longstanding issues since we were both in school.

First: fraternities on campus. There have been episodes of dangerous behavior contributing to major injuries and death due to hazing as well as a culture which has promoted sexual assault. What are colleges (and fraternities) doing about this? Is it enough?

We then talk about a resolution recently passed at the University of California condemning antisemitism. There have been increasing numbers of incidents where protests against Israeli policy have crossed a line into tactics which target Jewish groups.

As always, let us know what you think on Facebook or Twitter.

It’s a valid question: Whatever did happen to predictability?

It’s our TV talk episode! We talk about our experiences watching two recent Netflix shows: Fuller House and Master of None. And how they both impacted us culturally and nostalgically.

We also delve into some of our other favorite shows.

But it’s likely that we’re missing a whole bunch of good ones that you want to tell us about. What should we be watching? Let us know on Facebook or Twitter.

[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:

Hi everyone.

It’s 11:21 pm EST and Faiqa and I just got off of Skype after recording an amazing and intense episode of “Hey! That’s My Hummus!”

This one was a bit different than most:  we didn’t talk about current events, holidays, cultural traditions or Justin Bieber.   Instead, we talked about assumptions people make about us based on our multi-faceted identities.  We’re not just the Jew and the Muslim who jointly host a podcast together; we’re identified by our genders, our occupations, our ethnicities, our political stances and more. So we both took five assumptions people make about each of us and talked to each other about them.

And it was truly eye-opening.

But you’ll have to take our word for it because we’ve listened to it live and you haven’t yet.  I’m doing the post-processing and (hopefully) will have this ready for you by the end of the weekend. In the meantime, feel free to visit our Facebook page (or the box below) and comment about the assumptions people have made about you!

We’re just excited about this. 🙂

In the meantime — Faiqa will be appearing at Charis Books and More in Atlanta, GA tomorrow at 7:30 pm for a reading / presentation of “Love Her, Love Her Not: The Hillary Paradox,” a book of essays about Hillary Clinton from the perspective of numerous women writers.  Faiqa has an essay featured in the book.

If you can’t make it — you can support her (and us!) by buying the book through Amazon and our web page — which allows for a small proceed to be delivered our way.  Check it out!

[79] Capitulater, Alligator!

First Class Airline Seats“Capitulater, Alligator!”

“Patronage denial, Crocodile!”

This week’s show starts by talking about a specific boycott threat of Lands’ End — the company that makes quality catalog-ordered clothing and accessories.  When they decided to place a featured interview with Ms. Magazine founder and feminist activist Gloria Steinem in their latest issue, they received backlash due to Steinem’s reproductive rights stance and activism, even though not one word was mentioned about this in the piece. Lands’ End decided to retract the article and apologize to those who were offended.  Do boycotts (or threats of boycotts) end up with capitulation of the company? Or do they simply make a statement without enacting change?

We also talk about the discrimination lawsuit Israeli airline El Al faces due to a female passenger being asked to change her seat by a flight attendant because an Ultra-Orthodox passenger didn’t want to sit next to a woman.  Faiqa retells her similar experience when traveling to Pakistan as a teen.

Please ensure that your tray-tables are in their upright and locked position before listening to today’s episode.

And as always – we’d love to hear from you! Find us on Facebook or Twitter.
