In this episode I speak to SIM, Mort, and Mahin, of the Mad Mamluks podcast. They've been podcasting for around a year and a half and I wanted them to tell the story of their journey as content creators.

We talk about:

  • What motivated SIM to start the show,
  • their views on the quality of production required to get the attention of a Muslim audience,
  • their strategies for growing the podcast and where their main growth comes from,
  • how they present themselves to the world in a Muslim community that is not used to open and frank discussion on controversial issues,
  • how they deal with criticism and haters and how they differentiate between the two,
  • the people who support their show and how they can best support them,
  • and how they plan to make the show sustainable over the long-term.
