Back in May, Zahra and Taz had an awesome time getting interviewed by John Fugelsang and Frank Conniff for the SirusXM show Tell Me Everything. We weren't able to share the link - so instead, we're going to share the audio directly! Listen to the audio from the show right here - and thanks to the Tell Me Everything team for inviting us on!
We've had an exciting time this summer! And an exciting time with media. Thank you so much to everyone that's been listening to our podcast, sharing it, covering it, and giving us some love. We read all of your emails and tweets, even if we don't respond. We love you, we really do.

This has got to be one of our most favorite forms of flattery - having a story from our podcast turned into an animation. This cartoon was sent to us by Kulsum, a Pomona College student who had to create a piece of animation for a class project. The story is Taz's Awkward Ask a Muslim moment from episode #4. For the record, the guy that approached Taz was not White, but it is an interesting conversation on how to interpret race in a narrative when race isn't explicit - though Taz can guarantee the story would have gone a lot differently if he was white. And thank you so much to the animator for making Taz looks skinny.
We like fan mail of all kinds - especially with words! Please continue to tweet us using the hashtag #GoodMuslimBadMuslim and send us emails! We are reading them and using them to shape our podcast. Thank you for listening!

On behalf of all Muslims, we would like to thank PRI's The World for inviting us on to talk about our new #GoodMuslimBadMuslim podcast! We had a lot of fun recording out of an actual radio studio - it gave us something to aspire - real mics and a soundproof studio.
