Podcasted by Kaighla Um Dayo & Theresa Corbin
Here at islamwich, we discuss all things Muslim, all things ‘merican, and everything in between. Some things, though, need a little more than a few hundred words (ok, a lot more).
Twice a month (give or take), Theresa Corbin and Kaighla Um Dayo exchange witty banter and (somewhat) intelligent conversation right here, on the islamwich Podcast, all while helping bridge the gap between Islam and ‘merica.
(If you train your eye up there on the pages tabs, you’ll see our new islamwich podcast page. You can find any and all of our future podcasts listed there.)
Enjoy the first in the islamwich podcast series “The ‘Us & Them’ Illusion & Double Standards”. In this episode, we discuss why there is a double standard when tragedy strikes in the West vs. when the same tragedy happens in the East, why #blacklivesmatter is necessary, and the importance of remembering even the most evil people (yes, even Trump and Cruz) are human beings, too.
Theresa mentions an article on the extreme christian/extreme jihadist double standard, which you can read here.
Here’s a video of Republican Presidential Candidate Hopeful Ted Cruz making an ass of himself, something Kaighla mentions toward the middle of the podcast.
(we’d share videos of Trump doing the same, but there are too many. A quick Google search should suffice.)(seriously, click that link. You will thank us.)
Theresa talks more about her experience with American convert-turned-extremist Omar Hammami here.
