Episode 126 [in English]: The Beachy Afghan

It was such a pleasure to talk to The Beachy Afghan, the wonderful creator of the IG platform thebeachyafghan.  We discussed her experience as the child of Afghan immigrants in Germany post-9/11, our shared frustration with the incorrect assumption of homogeny that is often made about the regions surrounding the SWANA region and around Afghanistan and its surrounding region, and so much more!
