This week on See Something Say Something, Egyptian satirist Bassem Youssef stopped by BuzzFeed to talk to Ahmed about revolution, President Trump, and representation.
If you don't know Bassem Youssef, he's best known as "Egypt's Jon Stewart" and rose to fame during the Arab Spring with his incredibly popular satirical show El Bernameg.
On See Something Say Something, we often ask our guests to argue over random things in a segment called Halal or Not, so we had Bassem play a few rounds on camera.
On the podcast, Ahmed talked to Youssef about when Americans should be worried about the current political situation...
...and they also discussed the role of representation in comedy and media.
And at the end of the episode, Zainab Shah and Ahmed read some of the terrible Muslim pick-up lines submitted by fans since last weeks episode.
