Sikh Meets World


Simran Jeet Singh, Professor, Author, and Activist

Season 3, Ep. 1

Simran Jeet Singh is a professor at Columbia University, a Senior Fellow at the Sikh Coalition, the host of the Spirited podcast, an author, a father, and a devout San Antonio Spurs fan. He joined the pod to discuss his American story, the reasons that pushed him to embrace advocacy, and his new book, Fauja Singh Keeps Going, which releases on August 25, 2020. We recorded this discussion in March 2019 before the pandemic and protests, but Simran naturally touched on rising hate crimes, the attributes of true solidarity, and the importance of seva.
