Humble Mumbles

Date grant awarded: 3/21/2017

Humble Mumbles is an American podcast about Palestine, power, mythology, and narratives-within-narratives. Its name is an uncertain joke about the possibilities of humility, and the function of joking about it. While Humble Mumbles addresses a variety of topics, the main theme of each episode is a personal-political exploration of power and oppression using queer, psychoanalytic and feminist frames. Currently mumbling about oppressor mentalities, occupation and its offshoots, Humble Mumbles comprises a collection of stories and interviews with Palestinians and Israelis, lay analyses and musical interludes. Sometimes reporting from the West Bank.
