Moving Stories: Creativity and Immigration

Maeve’s co-host is her no. 1 girl crush, the hilarious and super smart Negin Farsad. Negin gave a TED Talk about her work in social justice comedy. She’s a filmmaker who took her live show on the road for a thought provoking and funny documentary called ‘The Muslims are Coming’. The women discuss the role of comedy during oppressive times. Poet Majid Naficy has faced much tragedy in his life, including the execution of his wife and friends during the Iranian Revolution, and he explains how writing helps. As does music, and performing, in the case of Vietnamese-American Lynda Trang Dai, it’s self expression that helps break down stereotypes and move everybody further. And it’s St.Patrick’s week, so Maeve checks in with her fellow Irish immigrant, Chris O’Dowd on just how many shamrocks he’s hoping to eat.
