Just after my New York Times feature “A Muslim American’s Homecoming: Cowboys, Country Music and Chapatis” won a gold Lowell Thomas Award last month, my friend and fellow freelance writer Rebecca Weber asked me to join her on her podcast, the Writing Coach.

Listen to it wherever you find podcasts, or look it up here.
