One comment on “EP 061: From the Cosmos to the Quantum | Mufti Abu Layth Al Maliki

  1. I am from Birmingham U.K. surprised to see him on one of your episodes. I think you should do a back ground check on individuals you invite on your show. Mufti Abu Layths real name is “Nahiem Ajmal” atleast do a quick google search.
