We Are Not A Cult


We Are Not A Cult Ethnically Ambiguous

In episode 56, the girls get into the history of former Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nassar and how he started the coup d'état trend in the Middle East, then the stories of Reza Aslan and Peter Beinart's interrogations by Shin Bet while trying to enter Israel. Plus they call Shereen's mama and hear some fascinating stories about her experience coming to America, meeting her husband, and trying to find where she belonged in this country.
