Ahmed reveals his nerdy side in this special video game themed episode. In Level 1, Ahmed talks to his cousins, siblings Nyle and Basim (of the Kominas!) Usmani, about how video games bring them together and why killing brown folks in Call of Duty makes them feel nauseous. In Level 2, Ahmed calls up Rami Ismail, co-founder of Dutch indie game studio Vlambeer, to get an insider’s take on the cultural insensitivity of first-person shooter games set in the Middle East and how being Muslim affects the way he designs his games. Level 3 is not in the podcast at all — IT’S AN ESSAY. Ahmed writes about playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare for the first time. Read it at bzfd.it/2pF5ox5.
