Welcome back aboard the M Train – a six-part miniseries from See Something, Say Something and BRIC Radio! Our second season focuses on the way big tech is changing the face of surveillance on Muslim New Yorkers. In our very first episode, we talk to Asad Dandia – one of the plaintiffs in the class-action lawsuit that successfully sued the New York City Police Department for its prejudicial surveillance of Muslim communities.
