Call It What You Will Salinas

Welcome to Call It What You Will.  This is a show that focuses on politics and social issues here in Salinas and our neighboring communities.  We aim to provide interviews that give listeners a more in-depth perspective on local leaders in government and the community.  We are not limited by the word count of a newspaper article or the time constraints of a tv news report.  We are simply some people sitting at a table having a conversation that we hope you find interesting and most of all, informative.  

Our show usually has two formats.  When we have a guest, our show focuses on having those conversations that we hope bring you a better understanding of the politics and social issues of our community.  When we don't have a guest, we tend to just sit around the table and have those random conversations about politics that happen when one sits at a bar sharing a few drinks with friends.

This week we speak to local activist, Nashwan Hamza.  Dom and Walter have a conversation with Nashwan his experiences as a Muslim-American and what it means to be a Muslim.  Nashwan answers our many questions as we admittedly are not very knowledgable of Islam.  We discuss some of the more well known traditions such as Ramadan, the Hajj, and the how the cultural differences within a country are reflected in Islam.  Dom admits his long confusion with how does one properly respond to or greet a Muslim in Arabic.  This episode was a fun conversation with Nashwan and we look forward to this being the first of many conversations on Islam and Muslim-Americans.
