This week we have two very different but equally exciting guests. First we speak with political fashion blogger Hoda Katebi about “sounding American,” how the East was gay until colonization, and her new book club. Then, we chat with Katie Couric, American journalist and host of new Nat Geo series "American Inside Out", about "The Muslim Next Door," her exploration into stereotyping, representation, and conflict in the American Muslim community.
