Episode 68 in English: Gems of New York City

We got to talk to the absolutely incredible comedians Eman El-Husseini and Jess Salomon!  As their website says, it’s most likely hummus that brings them together.  Eman (who’s Palestinian) and Jess (who’s Jewish) joined us to talk about how they met, their comedy both in Canada and the U.S., and their lives in New York City.  They also have gorgeous comics that are illustrated by the talented Jesse Brown; you can get more slice-of-life glimpses into the couple’s daily adventures together.  You will probably find yourself laughing during this episode, not surprisingly!  We were also thrilled to have our guest co-host (she has been a guest on an episode, as well as a guest co-host on other episodes), Nadia Khayrallah.  It is thanks to Nadia that we got connected with Jess and Eman.  Listen to the episode to hear how that happened!

As promised, here is the Halloween photo mentioned in the episode – it goes above and beyond what we could have even hoped for.
