NEW EXCLUSIVE
  • Trailblazing Pakistani-American Podcast Host
  • Named 2019 Producer of the Year by AdWeek
  • CEO of Dustlight Productions


Misha is a Pakistani-American podcast host, writer and producer, on a mission to make shows that inspire awe and push audio into uncharted territory. She is the founder and CEO of Dustlight Productions, a mission-driven podcast studio. In 2020, the Los Angeles Business Journal named her as one of their “20 in their 20’s.” This followed Ad Week naming her “Producer of the Year” and her podcasts landing on 9 best-of lists in 2019.

Misha helped make The Michelle Obama Podcast as an Executive Producer with her production company, Dustlight, in collaboration with Higher Ground Audio and Spotify.

In 2019, Misha made “Tell Them, I Am.” The LA Times called the show “quietly revolutionary.” The New York Times called it “hypnotic listening” and TIME, The Atlantic, Esquire, Cosmopolitan, Huffington Post, and the NYT Podcast Club named it one of their best podcasts of 2019. The series is about the small defining moments in our lives— the voices are all Muslim; the stories are universal. You can learn more about the podcast from this interview on All Things Considered.

Misha also produced The Big One: Your Survival Guide in 2019, named one of TIME, The Atlantic, Thrillist, Vulture, IndieWire, and NYT Podcast Club’s best podcasts of the year. The New Yorker’s Sarah Larson called it “riveting” and “strangely reassuring.”

All this podcasting started with Beginner, her autobiographical series about learning to belong as an immigrant in America. The Guardian’s Rowan Slaney said it brought her week “oodles of joy.”

When Misha wants to give her ears and voice a break, she hosts Quran Book Club on IGTV, make jokes on McSweeney’s and writes serious things for the Wall Street Journal. Sometimes, she naps. But that’s not featured anywhere.

She got her Masters in Journalism at Northwestern University, and has taught as an adjunct professor at USC Annenberg and the Transom Radio Workshop.
