My Breakfast with Omar

Peter Rugh May 1, 2017

For this episode of Indystructiblea new podcast from The Indypendent that takes you inside our reporting process as we cover resistance movements in the age of Trump — I have breakfast with journalist and author Omar El Akkad.

Omar’s debut novel, American War, is a must-read for anyone grappling with the issues of climate change, terror and democracy in the 21st century. A version of our conversation, edited for concision, is available in this month’s Indypendent.
