Great Listen and high resonating

Hi Beverly, Just finished listening to all, if not most of the episodes, while trying to write my research paper on intimate partner violence, housing crisis in Vancouver, and racialized women's health. Listening while doing this gives me strength to keep writing it.
I hope you continue the work that you do.

Looking forward to a Season 2 of It's Not A Race

Season 1 was great, and I'm hoping Beverley Wang and her team get to produce a Season 2 of the podcast (I'm looking at you Radio National...) For me personally, there are a few things I have in common with the host and more generally with the experience of racism: I'm Canadian, like Beverley, although I'm of mixed race - Chinese (my father was of Chinese descent, though born in the then British colony of Trinidad and Tobago in the Carribean) and white (my mother is Canadian, of Anglo-Scottish descent), and at the time I was born in the mid-1950s mixed race marriages and kids were anything but common in Canada, as I presume was the case throughout most of the British Commonwealth countries including Australia. The show presents a frank and open discussion of a topic that is still a touchy and difficult one to engage people in, and It's Not A Race does an excellent job of handling it with honesty, sensitivity, and a requisite dose of humour. Definitely recommend listening to it.

Great insight

So interesting to hear perspectives on race outside North America and very interested in the colonial parallels between Australia and Canada. The Jedda discussion was great. Can't wait to hear more.
