In this up close episode of the Blood Brothers podcast, Dilly and Aki Hussain catch up with journalist and author Hussein Kesvani.
Hussein explains the challenges of pursuing a career in journalism, and his different encounters with Muslims which inspired him to write his book, ‘Follow Me, Akhi’.
Hussein also describes the crisis in faith he experienced in his late teens that briefly led to him becoming an atheist.
Topics of discussion also include Muslim journalists seeking careers in the mainstream and non-Muslim media, the UK’s countering-violent extremism (CVE) apparatus, and deciding to withdraw from the Bradford Literature Festival in July this year.
