Episode details

I had a memorable time engaging Aisha Jamal; an Afghan immigrant, College Professor, Director and writer of the documentary, "A Kandahar Away". Her story chronicled the typical journey of a Canadian immigrant - the joy of arrival, the shock of reality, the struggle with integration, the rise through a competitive career and the everyday complexity of bias - status, look, age, accent, gender, religion and what have you! Much more amazing is the discovery that even in the same immigrant family, there are different conceptions about what it means to be Canadian. Shocking! You will enjoy this episode of the Immigrant Life Podcast!

But listening to our conversation is just the tip of the iceberg. I invite you to block out your calendar as "A Kandahar Away" premieres on the documentary channel on Sunday, October 20, 2019, at 9pm ET/PT. A Kandahar away will move you to initiate some interesting conversations with others who are on the immigration journey with you!
