The Other Latif

WNYC Studios
Society & CultureTrue CrimeDocumentary

Radiolab reporter Latif Nasser always believed his name was uniquely his own. Until he makes a shocking discovery that he shares his name with another man: Detainee 244 at Guantanamo Bay. The U.S. government paints a terrifying picture of The Other Latif as Al-Qaeda’s top explosives expert, and an advisor to Osama bin Laden. Nasser’s lawyer claims that he was at the wrong place at the wrong time, and that he was never even in Al-Qaeda. This clash leads Radiolab’s Latif into a years-long investigation, trying to uncover what this man actually did or didn’t do. Along the way, Radiolab’s Latif reflects on American values and his own religious past, and wonders how his namesake, a fellow nerdy, suburban Muslim kid, traveled such a strikingly different path.

  • “Woahhh Duuude”

    The reporter/host constantly punctuates his speech with “Wow!” and “Woah!” which just gets really annoying and non-professional sounding after a while; it’s a shame because it’s a really good story

  • I Still Think About How Much I Loved This One

    It’s been probably a year or more since I binged this on a (very long) roadtrip thru the American West. I love investigative podcasts and I listen to a lot of them, but this is the one I always point to as the pinnacle of the form. Better, even, than (the very excellent) Serial. Latif, you are an absolute pro. Fascinating, personal, and thorough with a ton of great, original reporting… a look at an issue that used to be at the top of the national consciousness but that got subsumed by all of the... more
