Today on Q: Comedian Maz Jobrani and the Challenges of Middle Eastern Entertainment
Essential Pittsburgh will take a summer break July 14th – 18th. We’ll return with live shows on July 21st.
You can listen to past episodes of Essential Pittsburgh here or check out the podcast in iTunes.
Today at noon on Q, with Jian Ghomeshi: Comedian and actor Maz Jobrani talks about the challenges of bringing those from the Middle East into mainstream entertainment and why the World Cup has helped Americans progress.
At 8pm, The Really Big Questions, hosted by Dean Olsher: What defines a “good death?” Most people hope to go quietly at home, surrounded by family. Today, we hear from people seeking to bring engagement with death back into our culture, through death salons, green funerals, and meaningful end-of-life care.
