Ep. 56: Not all representation is good representation
1:01:43When we say we are fed UP with the Muslim representation on movies/TV shows as of late, we were not kidding. Tune in to one of our most opinionated episodes where we go in on the show Ramy (#cantrelate) and all the ways that it went wrong with telling our stories - or what was marketed as our stories. We also show examples from Cuties, Little Mosque on the Prairie, Man like Mobeen among others to really highlight how to properly tell Muslim narratives and the frustrating tropes that need to be dropped.
