This is S2E7 of WJTA. This week we have a brand new guest on the show, Mina Sharif. Mina was born in Afghanistan but she and her family fled when she was just a year old. Decades later, Mina built a successful career in communications and filmmaking. She made the decision to return to Afghanistan as an adult and it was life-changing. 

In this episode we discuss if it's possible for religion and culture to be separated not only for Muslims, but all religions and what happens when religion and cultures collide.
