DEARBORN, Mich. (WJBK) - "See Something Say Something" was called one of the best new podcasts of 2016 -- and it's coming to be taped before a live audience in Dearborn.
In every episode, BuzzFeed’s Ahmed Ali Akbar gathers folks together to drink tea, tell stories, and talk about being Muslim in America. Only fitting it's visiting Dearborn, as the city has one of the largest Arab American and Muslim concentrations in the country.
The episode, which will be for the fall season of the podcast, will be recorded on Saturday, August 12 at 7 p.m.
The episode will feature an interview with poet, Hugo-nominated author of Throne of the Crescent Moon and writer for Marvel's Black Bolt series Saladin Ahmed, as well as a panel with racial justice and human rights activist Asha Noor; Associate Professor in the Department of American Culture and Director of Arab and Muslim American Studies at the University of Michigan Evelyn Alsultany; and Co-Founder and Co-Director of the Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative (MuslimARC), Namira Islam.
The taping will last until 8:30 p.m. It will be in the Aliya Hassan Auditorium at the Arab American National Museum on Michigan Avenue.
Chai and sweets will be available to enjoy in the Museum's Community Courtyard prior to the live taping at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets for the event are $8, and are available online at http://arabamericanmuseum.org/ssss-live.
