Souad Mekhennet - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #169

WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip, episode 169 at that! They are racking up aren't they... My my my... You may have heard Pip hyping this one up for a minute, and quite rightly so - ladies and gentlemen, please welcome journalist, author, writer, Souad Mekhennet!

A huge episode here, as Pip sits down with Souad for a nice good while to really get into her own story... And what a deep, heavy and truly daring life she has led, from beginning to present day - hear her recall some chills-inducing tales and truly unique meetings, from getting in deep into situations with Isis commanders, her interview with 'Jihadi John', and her career covering all manner of terrorist activities over the years, and SO much more, made all the more fascinating due to her being Muslim and female, which positions her uniquely for her line of writing and interviewing. It's also fascinating hearing her thoughts on what creates a perfect situation for men to become radicalised, and how it can mainly stem from a broken family life. This is an absolutely gripping conversation, to which this writeup would never do justice, and it's a wonderful commentary companion to her book 'I Was Told To Come Alone', which you should (and I'm sure will) snap up at your nearest convenience. Powerful. Get into it.
