It focused on the growing Muslim communities in the United States, Australia and New Zealand, and how elections, counter-terrorism policies, war and xenophobia have affected their lives in the 15 years since 9/11.
Hassan travelled to hear very personal stories from Muslims about the impact on their everyday lives.
Also finalists were the podcasts A Wrinkle in Time and the Oldest Profession, presented by Noelle McCarthy and Philippa Tolley respectively, Phil Pennington for his steel mesh investigation and Kathryn Ryan in the best talk show host section.
With entries from over 30 countries, the New York awards recognise the highest quality work that is at the forefront of audio innovation.
