Thanks for checking out Episode #14 of We're Just Talking About It!

In this episode we tackle the topic of entertainment vs. news in America, in particular to Muslims in America. 

  • We discuss the common question: Where are all the muslims speaking out against terrorism?
  • How the September 11th terrorist attacks got people more curious about Islam
  • Why Munim is cautiously optimistic about the future of religious understanding in America
  • How the shift in demographics is helping how Muslims are perceived in America. 

The thing to remember, "As long as we're talking, we're moving in the right direction."-- Jason Howk
