On this week's episode of the Young East African Girl podcast, we are joined by Los Angeles–based filmmaker and writer Khalid Moalim. Khalid is currently a script coordinator on the hit CBS show NCIS: New Orleans. We talk about the state of the world, his spiritual practice, and how he found his way into writing. We discuss his education at The Ohio State University and his entry point into writing through journalism as both a sports reporter and NPR intern, and his eventual shift into film and TV.
Join us as we demystify work in the film industry and learn how Khalid found his way onto the set of Boots Riley's award-winning film Sorry to Bother You, and what important lessons he learned from working with Neal Brennan co-creator of the Chapelle Show and much much more!
