Episode 20: Persian Onion Rings w/ Zahra Noorbakhsh

There’s a lot going on in the world, and Iranian American comedian Zahra Noorbakhsh is here to work through it all with us. Together with Long, they talk about what it means to be Persian in the Asian American community, parallels between anti-Muslim sentiment after 9/11 and anti-Asian racism during COVID, and dealing with it all. By dealing with it, we mean...watching Frasier and imagining what appropriated Persian food tastes like. Send questions, comments, and episode ideas to goldandgreat@kollaboration.org.
