Comedian Azhar Usman Gets Serious

Azhar UsmanThe folks at Diffused Congruence have a laugh with comedian Azhar Usman — “America’s Funniest Muslim” — “for a wide-ranging, free-form conversation that’s as incisive and introspective as it is hilarious. Azhar covers everything from the role of satire and humor in Islam to the recent tragic terror attacks in Paris — and that’s just scratching the surface.”

Listen below:

Imam Zaid Shakir in conversation – Zaytuna and More.

“We now have a platform (Zaytuna) to bring our values into the mainstream…”

Diffused Congruence speak to Imam Zaid Shakir on “a founding member of Zaytuna College… on the school’s history and its mission. Then he shares the amazing story of his own journey to Islam, in the process helping to add yet more layers to the ongoing tapestry of the American Muslim experience that we’ve been weaving together ever since our very first show. It’s a fascinating conversation with one of the most prominent and preeminent Muslim minds in the world.”

Diffused Congruence is a podcast highlighting and focusing on unique and interesting personalities from within and without the Muslim community.
