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. We chatted about how the story came to life, what went into reporting it, and how the writing process was—all the behind-the-scenes info you normally never get to hear about. Listen to it wherever you find podcasts, or look it up here.
