Host Jessica Harris speaks with Naif Al-Mutawa, founder of The 99, a comic series that features superheroes based on Islamic archetypes. These comics, while not overtly alluding to Islam, aim to promote values of tolerance and peace outside of and within the Muslim world.

Harris also speaks with Fred Swaniker, the co-founder of African Leadership.
