Should freedom of speech extend to burning books? One of Denmark’s first Muslim politicians, Özlem Cekic, talks to host Reya El-Salahi on this week’s podcast about how this stern test of liberal democratic ideals is playing out against a backdrop of angry condemnation across the Muslim world.

Comedians Mustafa Algiyadi, Sharlin Jahan, Harun Musho’d and Leila Navabi join a special Edinburgh 2023 panel to discuss the highs and lows of performing at the world’s biggest arts festival, and whether posting crying selfies online is the best way to market a show.

Plus, Hussein Kesvani meets the Muslim Redditors doomscrolling their way to a spiritual crisis.
