In Episode 10, we talk about some changes coming up on our podcast, as Bisha takes her comedy show on the road all the way to Edinburgh Fringe festival!

We then get into a deep, nuanced discussion about White Feminism (sometimes also called Neoliberal Feminism), a particular brand of feminism that is often misunderstood. We talk about what White Feminism means and what it does not mean. We also consider whether "people of colour" can be White Feminists.

We then explore how "Muslim" has become a racialized identity, and how "Islam is not a race" is used as an excuse for instrumentalizing Muslim identities in service of White Supremacism and imperialism. We also talk about what "Intersectionality" means to us. And we ponder why any LGBTQ, black, Jewish, Latinx or Muslim people would vote for Trump.
