Katie Couric podcast LIVE: The Muslim Next Door


Wajahat Ali

Brian Goldsmith


Mona Haydar

Katie Couric and her podcast co-host, Brian Goldsmith, dive into Katie’s upcoming six-part National Geographic series America Inside Out. They'll focus on one episode, The Muslim Next Door, with two guests: Wajahat Ali (NY Times contributing op-ed writer and Emmy-nominated producer) and Mona Haydar (Syrian-American rapper and activist). 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 -- how do we counter fear, honor freedom and respect faith? Come listen to Katie and Brian talk with Wajahat and Mona about these issues and more during this LIVE taping of the Katie Couric podcast. Session will be simulcast to Ballroom BC at the Austin Convention Center, as well as Room 5 at the JW Marriott.
