Sacrilege Behind The Curtain (Ramadan Episode)
Ramadan Kareem! In the Amreekies tradition, we present to you the annual Ramadan episode :) Take a break from your usual Ramadan activities (or lack thereof) to join Mohammad, Alla and Ehab as they have a playful and humorous discussion about the highs and lows of fasting, the darn curtain partition at the mosque, spirituality and the beauty of the holy month. Plenty of jokes, laughter, reflection and silliness in this one. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed recording it! Thank you for your listenership :) References: Ehab's 2017 Blog Post about Ramadan: http://thetokenarab.blogspot.com/2017/06/the-undeniable-hardship-of-ramadan.html Credits: Co-hosts: Mohammad A., Alla F. and Ehab J.  |  Editing and Production: Ehab J. | Cover Art: Cameron Hood, Lovely Line Design | Intro and Outro Song: MBC1 Ramadan Idents by Layal Watfeh #ramadan #ramadanpodcast #podcast #arab #arabamerican #arabamericanpodcast #islam #muslim #muslimamerican #iraq #iraqi #libyan #libya #palestine #palestinian #fasting #amreekies

Zamzam Islam VS Beer Christianity w/Jonty Langley
It's the clash of cultures! A battle royale between two podcast hosts of different faiths! Just kidding :) Ehab has gone rogue again with a one-on-one episode with Jonty, co-host from a podcast called Beer Christianity. Please join Ehab and Jonty as they share their thoughts on dealing with depression and anxiety while performing and hosting, being a niche version of your faith and demonstrating another side of your faith to outsiders. They also discuss podcast producing angst, not being a very good Christian/Muslim. This episode is a joint episode, published in slightly different forms by both podcasts. Thank you for your listenership!  About Beer Christianity: Beer Christianity is a left-leaning, evangelical-adjacent Christian discussion podcast that often features interviews and always features a few drinks and laughs. Our aim is to be real, to be helpful and to be entertaining.
