On this episode of Audience, Stuart talks to Anisa Khalifa about her podcast, The Broadside, which is a podcast that covers a variety of different topics. Anisa talks about her career in radio and podcasting and how she and her team work to develop great stories in order to fully immerse listeners in each of their stories. While most of the stories on The Broadside cover topics that are centered in North Carolina, the themes are universal so everyone can get value and information out of each episode.

Anisa Khalifa is an award-winning podcast producer and host at WUNC. She grew up in a public radio household and fell in love with podcasts shortly before her friends convinced her to start one with them about Korean dramas. Since joining WUNC in 2021, Anisa has produced Me and My Muslim Friends, CREEP, Tested, and Dating While Gray, and is the host of WUNC's weekly podcast The Broadside. Anisa is also the co-creator of indie podcasts Dramas Over Flowers and Muslim in Plain Sight. In her non-podcast life, she’s a culture writer, poet, visual artist, and chronic insomniac, who is fascinated by the stories we tell about ourselves and each other.
