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!
