This is the second episode of a three-part special series on allyship. The vast majority of people are well-intentioned and want to be inclusive - but various factors hold them back from stepping up to be an ally. In this episode we dive into the barriers to allyship, and some practical tips to overcome them — including some critique of call-out culture and its nasty older brother cancel culture.
