Zahra is a Bay Area comedian and writer who describes herself as a "Muslim, feminist, Iranian-American comedian, pork-eating, alcohol-drinking, premarital-sex-having-but-married good Muslim." Taz is a Los Angeles-based Bangladeshi-American political activist, writer, and artist.

The podcast delves into the complicated nature of being a Muslim woman in America, where what is considered good in American circles is bad in Muslim circles and vice versa. You can't win!

Taz: "This is like every guy I've ever dated."

Zahra: "I don't want drama. Might as well get cab fair."


11. Your first date goes great but you decide not to go home with him. He starts ghosting completely.

Zahra: I feel like our relationship is just rekindling all over again as a duo.

Taz: At least we're on message when it comes to stalking. We might not match in other things, but when it comes to stalking men, we're on the same page.
