3. #Good Muslim/Bad Muslim

Is your make-up Halal? Is Chrissy Teigen the best giver of advice in the entire world? These are just a few of the things discussed and answered on #GoodMuslimBadMuslim, the podcast brought to you by Tanzila Ahmed and Zahra Noorbakhsh.

With its roots in a hashtag (no, really), #GoodMuslimBadMuslim takes on the stereotypes facing Muslim women today, whilst also dishing out hilarious commentary on pop culture, celebrities, politics and so much more.

Since their humble beginnings, the pair has gone on to be featured in Wired, BuzzFeed, Oprah Magazine and also recorded a one-off special in the White House, no less. Obviously, this was pre-Trump, if you hadn’t already guessed.

The podcast is wildly successful, has amassed a 4.5-star rating on iTunes and is a delight to listen to. It’s also amazing to hear two marginalized women who are able to talk about anything and everything (and they really do) instead of only being allowed to talk about their oppression.

In their own words, #GoodMuslimBadMuslim aims to say “f–k it” to the mixed messages Muslim American women get from the media, the Muslim community and well, anyone who has an opinion on them.
