About This Show
Snacks and Chats, Season 1: But where are you really from?
A serious podcast, with a silly name. Lani and Ben begin each episode by asking creative New Zealanders how they tackle that loaded question, “Where are you from?” and the stories go from there.

Episode 14: Omar bin Musa
Australian-Malaysian poet, writer, rapper and screenwriter Omar bin Musa is our first international guest.
He talks about the experience of growing up brown, Asian and Muslim in Australia and how learning about Muhammad Ali changed the entire course of his life, from learning to love his brown skin to being introduced to hip hop. We also talk about how he transferred the feelings of fury and frustration into his debut novel Here Come the Dogs, and the pain he poured into into his latest album, Since Ali Died.
