Produced by Wisconsin Public Radio and hosted by Jean Feraca, “Inside Islam" is a special radio series from the producers of “Here on Earth – Radio Without Borders.” A collaborative effort, the program works side by side with the Inside Islam Blog, always up-to-date with the latest discussions involving Islamic news, beliefs, debates and culture. You can find both the show and the blog at www.insideislam.wisc.edu.
The Inside Islam initiative seeks to challenge misconceptions and stereotypical perceptions about Muslims worldwide through the University of Wisconsin’s nine international studies centers, Wisconsin Public Radio and you, the public.
In this edition of Inside Islam: You won’t find any madrassahs, honor killings or terrorists in Daiyal Munedeen’s highly-praised collection of short stories, In Other Rooms, Other Wonders. What you will find is rare insight into the way Pakistani society really works and why there’s so much virtue in corruption.
“Here on Earth” is Wisconsin Public Radio’s global talk program. It airs live, Monday through Friday, from 4 to 5 p.m. Eastern Time.
