[12/12] Where The Wild Things Are (Season 1 Recap)
Some bonus materials to send you on your way
Every great work of art has it’s share of B-sides, outtakes, bonus materials, and everything in between. And the world of Gumption is no exception. Sometimes we need to change the script and get wild, and that’s exactly what we did! And so without further ado, here we bring to you everything that went off-script, and straight into our hearts.
This is the last update from our Season 1 recap. What will come next, you ask? That will depend on how YOU answer that question. Stay tuned for our discussion thread this week!

READ 📖 “Poem” by Khaled Sallem
LISTEN 🎤 “Wrestling with Grandma” by Omar Shaker
Watch 👀 A Gumpcast Special
Omar and Paul’s Instagram Takeover on IGTV
📝 “Poem” by Khaled Sallam
From the scrolls of one of our newest staff members (who also was one of our first Gumpcast guests). Like many of the greats before us, Khaled shares the realness and the rawness of the human heart and soul, through the medium of poetry.
🎧 Wrestling with Grandma
A spoken word piece by our very own Omar Shaker, a glimpse into his own genes, and therefore his own past, in order to get a better and more complete understanding of himself. Take a listen as our fearless leader gets in the ring with his beloved grandmother.
❣️ Emotional Hangouts Parts 1-4
A happy accident in the world of the Gumpcast. We had so much good material from our interview with Episode 11’s Atta Pilram, that we carved out a little mini-series we lovingly called “Emotional Hangouts”. Because Atta is our proverbial granddad, the alternate title of this series almost became “Storytime with Babu”. Gather around with us, as we listen to more from Atta’s tales as we delve even deeper into the world of human emotions.
📺 A Gumpcast Special on IGTV
Back in September, the good people at African Crossroads invited the Gumpcast’s very own Omar and Paul to take over their channel ahead of the annual conference. Watch the recording of the livestream where Omar and Paul discuss the heroes journey, the balance of the sexes, vulnerability, and hang out with some of our good friends! Grab some popcorn and enjoy:
Have a wild week!
