The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life, the Park Center for Independent Media, and the Muslim Chaplaincy at Cornell will host Pakistani-American and Executive Producer of The Michelle Obama Podcast, Misha Euceph. Last year, she created “Tell Them, I Am,” a podcast about “the small moments that define who we are and who we are not. The stories are universal. The voices are all Muslim.” The LA Times called it “quietly revolutionary,” the New York Times said it was “hypnotic listening,” and was voted one of TIME’s 10 best podcasts of 2019.
Misha Euceph will explore how podcasts lift up stories of intersecting identities, defining moments, relationships with faith/spirituality, and activism. When we release those stories onto the airwaves (figuratively speaking), how do they change listeners? The event will be moderated by Raza Rumi, Director, Park Center for Independent Media.
September 30, 2020 | Via Zoom
7:00 PM – 8:00 PM
