Take A Listen To The Zayn Malik Episode Of "See Something Say Something"

The BuzzFeed podcast See Something Say Something talks about the pop icon and why it matters so much that he's Muslim and Pakistani.

Posted on

This week on BuzzFeed podcast See Something Say Something, I bring on BuzzFeed News editor Sara Yasin to talk about Muslim sex symbol and pop icon, Zayn Malik.

Joining us are Twitter badass Farwa Zaidi and writer/Zayn Malik scholar Fariha Róisìn.
