Mohamed Hassan is an award-winning journalist and poet based in Auckland. Public Enemy, his 2016 podcast series about the rise of Islamophobia post 9/11, won Gold at the 2017 New York Festival Radio Awards.

He's appearing at several events from Nov 6-8 during Wellington's VERB festival and at WORD in Christchurch at the end of October.
