Maryam Jamshidi is one of the sharpest people I know, and I’m not just saying that because she’s on this podcast! She’s a lawyer and writer with over ten years of experience working on issues relating to the Middle East and North Africa. She’s an acting assistant professor of law at NYU Law School. And she is the founder and editor-in-chief of Muftah.org, a digital magazine providing diverse perspectives on the Middle East and North Africa. Maryam and I talked about national security, terrorism, the Arab Spring, and her ongoing field research on gangsta rap.
