Diffused Congruence Podcast: Celebrating the American Muslim Experience

10/04/2013 02:46 am ET | Updated Dec 03, 2013

Welcome to the premiere episode of Diffused Congruence, an all new podcast celebrating the richness and diversity of the American Muslim experience. I've had this one in the works for a long, long, long while now, and I'm very excited to finally be able to bring it to you. With new episodes slated to drop the first Friday of every month, the goal of this new show is to highlight and focus on unique and interesting personalities from both within and without the Muslim community, engaging them in illuminating and invigorating conversation about a variety of subjects. For our first ep, my co-host Parvez Ahmed and I are joined by Usama Canon, founding director of the San Francisco Bay Area-based Ta'leef Collective, as he discusses his journey to Islam, the challenges facing young people in the 21st century, and what Ta'leef is all about. You can stream the episode below, or download here. Please don't hesitate to send any questions and comments to DiffusedCongruence@gmail.com, and remember to come back for our second episode soon!
