See Katie Couric’s acclaimed podcast at live SXSW. Couric and her co-host Brian Goldsmith will dive into her upcoming six-part National Geographic series “America Inside Out,” focusing on one episode, “The Muslim Next Door.”
Guests will be Wajahat Ali, a New York Times contributing op-ed writer and Emmy-nominated producer, and Mona Haydar, a Syrian-American rapper and activist. Together they’ll tackle hard questions about how to counter fear, honor freedom and respect faith at a time when a proposed travel ban has the support of more than half the population, President Trump has pondered asking Muslim-Americans to register with the federal government, and hate crimes against Muslim people in this country are at an all-time high.
“Katie Couric podcast LIVE: The Muslim Next Door” happens 11:00 AM Sunday, March 11 in the Austin Convention Center Ballroom D.
