Salam Café: Muslim Talk Show from Australia
(For English speakers)
Salam Café is a comedy-oriented talk show on SBS television station in Australia. The hosts are all Muslims and most of the audience seems to be Muslim as well. They use humor to discuss a range of issues relevant to Muslims, especially those living in Australia.
There are no subtitles, but this show might be useful if you want to practice your English by watching and listening to the discussions. You might have some trouble trying to understand their Australian accents, but the more you listen, the easier it will become.
SBS is a government-funded public television station, much like TVRI in Indonesia. I have only watched the first season so far, but some of their jokes are quite funny.
The shows are streamed over the internet, and you can choose high, medium or low bandwidth.
I hope you enjoy it.
