Welcome to episode 7 of We're Just Talking About. We figured after six episodes, it was time to explain how our host got started talking about Islam in America and why he continues to travel and educate non-muslims about Islam.

It's interesting to note that host, Jason, is a white-male, raised in the South and grew up in the Baptist church. He says it's these very characteristics that allows him the unique opportunity to speak about Islam in America and reach diverse audiences. 

What started as an urge to understand more about Muslim culture and Islam has lead Jason to international speaking engagements, teaching at multiple institutions and interacting with diverse audiences throughout the world. 

His mission through it all-- education and tolerance.

We hope you enjoy this episode how Jason's how and why!
