On this episode, we got to speak to Kashgar, who shared her family history, her experience with Islam, and the importance of asking questions. We also spoke about the diversity within the Islamic world (i.e. Muslim does not equal Arab!), stopped for breaks to pet the cats, and got some excellent book recommendations (book list below). It was wonderful to have Kashgar as a guest and we’re so grateful to her for doing this!
