My Islam; A conversation with Amir Nasr

Broadcast in Culture

Call in to speak with the host

(347) 237-4877


Described by The Economist as “puckish” and by WIRED as a “formidable speaker,” Amir Ahmad Nasr is a sought-after cultural commentator, activist, and marketing strategist who regularly sheds light on one of the most important emerging trends of our time: how the Internet-driven Millennial revolution is redefining business, culture, and politics.


He is the author of the inspirational book My Isl@m: How Fundamentalism Stole My Mind–and Doubt Freed My Soul, selected as one of Foreign Policy’s top 25 books to read in 2013. My Isl@am has been described by prominent media professor Clay Shirky as “a love letter to freedom of speech,” and by graphic novelist G. Willow Wilson as a book that “sheds light on a generation of revolutionary life-hackers poised to change the global conversation about religion and politics.”
