A PODvocative person is one who confronts the unconventional with courage. Each week, NYC-based millennials Farheen and Sheetal will host a “PODvocateur” to share their unique perspectives. Through this exchange, we hope to foster a sense of togetherness and understanding, acknowledging that each of us has something to learn from seemingly ordinary people, who share their extraordinary points of view. 

We spotlight Ismaili Muslim voices, those that bravely confront topics that may be traditionally taboo or unaddressed within the community. These Ismaili PODvocateurs are offering their unfiltered outlooks, with guests including LGBTQ+, nonpracticing, mid-thirties-and-single, and many other Ismailis. We hope you will hear and learn from their stories, and, in doing so, continue to be unapologetically PODvocative yourselves.
