We review the first season of Neflix's first ever Palestinian original series, Mo! Co-created by Palestinian-American actor and comedian Mo Amer and Ramy Youssef, this outstanding comedy-drama is a semi-autobiographical take on Amer's own life in Houston. How does it do well at portraying Palestinians, and Houston and its various people? Why does it have such a perfect balance of comedy and heartbreak? What are the few things we wish were better? We also discuss *everything* that's been happening recently with Warner Brothers Discovery and HBO Max, give our recommendations, and much more!   Read Tariq's review of Mo for The New Arab    Our music is composed by Ashley Hefnawy.

Today's episode features a very special and very funny guest, Mo Amer. A Palestinian refugee and a successful comedian with two acclaimed Netflix stand-up specials under his belt, Mo Amer will become the first Palestinian-American to have their own scripted series, titled 'MO' now streaming on Netflix. Mohammed ‘Mo' Amer was born to Palestinian refugee parents in Kuwait before coming to the United States as a refugee himself after his family fled the Gulf War. Sharing the experience of his parents, and of the Palestinian people, has always been a huge part of Amer's comedy, and his own identity. At 9 years old Mo found himself in his new home in Texas and his experiences there would lead to comedy gold. He's performed with some of the biggest names in comedy, co-stars in the Golden Globe-winning series “Ramy on Hulu, and will also be starring alongside The Rock in the upcoming DC film Black Adam and has been featured in over 100 major media outlets. Mo, thanks so much for talking with us.

Amer stars in a new Netflix comedy about his life called Mo. His family is Palestinian, and fled the first Gulf War, so Amer grew up in Houston from age nine. "Palestinian culture is a folksy farmer kind of mentality and life," Amer says. "And when I came to Texas, one of the things that was really attractive to me was the country music, the folksy music, the storytelling tradition of that." Amer also has two Netflix comedy specials, and co-starred in the Hulu series Ramy. Also, Kevin Whitehead reviews the new album from jazz drummer Billy Drummond's quartet.

Nataly is hilarious, tours with Mo Amer, just had a set come out on Netflix is A Joke which you can check out on YouTube, and tours all over the US. This conversation goes deep and gets very emotional. Nataly has emigrated to the US twice in her life: the first time at age 12 as a war refugee, and then again at age 20 to study. She talks about how painful it was to be forced to leave her home at 12 years old, how she is still processing the trauma of that experience, the shame and guilt that comes along with being able to leave when others are not, how much she loves her country, why Arabic brings out the real Nataly, the time she sold all her jewelry to Armenians in downtown Beirut, her road to comedy and so, so much more.
