#131: Suzi Jamil on opening minds with conversations at Think Inc

By Jordan Michaelides

Suzi Jamil is the Owner and Director of Think Inc, the Producer of Islam & The Future of Tolerance, and a self-confessed sneakerhead.

Having toured the likes of Sam Harris, Maajid Nawaz, Steve Wozniak, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Chelsea Manning & many more – it’s clear that her mission in life is to remind the world that smart thinking is cool. In my opinion, her work has never been more important, showing both the left and right of politics that they can get along through proper long-form discourse.

In this episode we covered:

  • Being a Sneakerhead
  • The Mediterranean diet
  • Jonathan Haidt on social media
  • People who inspire Suzi
  • Life-changing Think Inc events
  • Difficult conversations further society
  • Discourse & Free Speech
  • Islam & The Future of Tolerance
