Episode 49: Palestine, Poetry & Pokemon with Summer!

It’s February 1 and it’s cold! Summer is here to bring you some much-needed warmth with stunning poetry and lovely descriptions of her parents’ home in Palestine. Summer Farah is a writer who is studying English literature at Berkeley. During this episode, we also talked about gaming (mainly Pokemon) and the ways gaming can impact a person’s life in ways that we often forget. It was wonderful talking with Summer; we connected with her after hearing her episode on the podcast Ethnically Ambiguous. We enjoyed every moment of this beautiful episode, and we think you will too.

Here is a link to more info on Eli Rezik – Summer’s cousin – who she mentioned in the episode! https://www.imdb.com/name/nm4899107/
