Description

<p>In this episode, we ask the question, “Can faith help us find our place in an increasingly broken world?” Comedian and host Gabe González connects with Ramy Youssef over how he’s used his career in stand-up comedy to push boundaries around taboo subjects like religion and as a catalyst for his show<em> Ramy</em>. They dig into Ramy’s three-dimensional portrayal of an Egyptian, Muslim-American family in all their flaws and the way faith influences each character’s arc in profound ways. After the interview, Gabe sits down with Arij Mikati, Managing Director of Culture Change at Pillars Fund and consultant on <em>Ramy</em> to dig into the importance of showing an array of flawed, funny, fundamentally human Muslim Americans and how the women of <em>Ramy </em>are moving the conversation forward. </p>
