Islamic Relief USA is Proud to Announce “What a Relief!” Podcast

Published

What happens when a self-help comedian and social media manager both have a passion for podcasting and come together to support a common cause?

A podcast is born!

So what exactly is the “What a Relief!” podcast?

Every week, B.C. Dodge and R. Mordant Mahon (who you might know from the “Success Freaks” podcast) sit down with staff members and volunteers to talk about IRUSA efforts in the United States and abroad.

If you haven’t subscribed to the podcast yet, here is what you have missed:

Building Bridges With Language Translation: Abdallah Shawky Talks Syrian Refugee Response” — B.C. (known as Carl on the program) and Mordant sit down with IRUSA Disaster Response Team member Abdallah Shawky to talk about his experience on the beaches of Greece, where he aided refugees first-hand.

• “Laura McAdams Talks Syrian Refugees, Education and Europe” — B.C. and Mordant sit down with IRUSA’s Laura McAdams, an international programs coordinator, to discuss field operations; i.e. your dollars hard at work.

• “Free Turkey to Americans in Need for the Holidays, A New Muslim Tradition in Ward 7” — B.C. reports live from Ward 7, Washington, D.C., where IRUSA and Third Pillar Charities work together to deliver turkey and all the fixings just in time for the holidays.

And there is much, much more planned for upcoming shows!
