AhSa-Ti Nu meets with Zahra Noorbakhsh, the Feminist Muslim Iranian-American comedian and cohost of the award-winning podcast, #GoodMuslimBadMuslim. The podcast was listed as a “must listen,” by Oprah Magazine and was invited to the Obama Whitehouse to record an episode. She is a Sr. Fellow on comedy for social change with the Pop Culture Collaborative. In addition to her two sold-out performances of her stand-up comedy special “On Behalf of All Muslims” at the Golden Thread Theater in San Fransisco, her solo performance of “All Atheists are Muslim: A Romantic Comedy,” was originally directed by CNN’s W. Kamau Bell. Reza Aslan says “always insightful, always subversive…Zahra’s comedic romps disrupt an outdated narrative.” Her writing is featured in the NY Times and on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross.

In this episode we get up close and personal as Zahra talks about her experiences of being a Queer, Feminist Muslim Iranian-American comedian. Prepare to laugh and enjoy. Be sure to follow her on social media and tune into her podcast.
