Not long ago at Podfest 2016 in Tampa Khadija Bazzi Hamdar had an idea. She wanted to create a podcast that would help educate listeners on Islam and dispel all of the myths and misunderstandings of the faith. Her goal was to show that ISIS bends the faith and its core values to manipulate and deceive and she wanted to add her Western views on it as well. Khadija was born in Canada and has already caused a stir with the show. Her Facebook threads are filled with angry listeners and Facebook visitors and she has taken her fair share of verbal abuse. Now she visits All Things Post to discuss the launch of the podcast, the making of the podcast and the future of A Muslim Pearl in a Western Shell.
