    EP #90: Re-Play of interview with PROPAGANDA - Building a Better World.

    EP #90: Re-Play of interview with PROPAGANDA - Building a Better World.

    This is a re-play of an episode of our interview with Sunni and Lisa Propaganda about his book, Terraform: Building a Better World 
    From https://www.prophiphop.com: 
    …a poet, political activist, husband, father, academic & emcee With LA flowing through his veins & armed with a bold message, Propaganda has assembled a body of work that challenges and guides.  Propaganda’s ideas stem from where he sits at the intersection. He sees how cultures cross and inspire one another, and can see the oneness of us all. Propaganda will cause you to nod your head, but more importantly he will stretch your mind & heart.   
    Book description:  Terraform: Building a Better World

    In this debut collection of essays and poetry, musician, speaker, and activist Propaganda inspires us to create a better, more equitable world.


    “If we get to make the very cultures that shape who we are, then let us remake them in the best way possible.”
    In this deep, challenging, and thoughtful book, Propaganda looks at the ways in which our world is broken. Using the metaphor of terraforming—creating a livable world out of an inhospitable one—he shows how we can begin to reshape our homes, friendships, communities, and politics.
    In this transformative time—when we are redefining what a truly just and equitable world looks like, and reflecting on the work that needs to be done both in our spiritual and secular lives—Propaganda rallies readers to create that just world. He sheds light on how nefarious origin stories have skewed our views of ourselves and others and allowed gross injustices, and demonstrates how great storytelling and excellent art can create and shape new perspectives of the world and make all of us better.

    EP #88: The Authority Gap: Why Women Are Taken Less Seriously Than Men and What We Can Do About It with Mary Ann Sieghart

    EP #88: The Authority Gap: Why Women Are Taken Less Seriously Than Men and What We Can Do About It with Mary Ann Sieghart

    Sunni and Lisa are joined by Mary Ann Sieghart, the author of The Authority Gap: Why Women Are Taken Less Seriously Than Men and What We Can Do About It . 

    Book description:  The Authority Gap: Why Women Are Taken Less Seriously Than Men and What We Can Do About It .

    Imagine living in a world in which you were routinely patronized by women.
    Imagine having your views ignored or your expertise frequently challenged by them.
    Imagine people always addressing the woman you are with before you.
    Now imagine a world in which the reverse of this is true.
    The Authority Gap provides a startling perspective on the unseen bias at work in our everyday lives, to reveal the scale of the gap that still persists between men and women. Would you believe that female US Supreme Court Justices are interrupted four times more often than male ones...96 percent of the time by men? Or that British parents, when asked to estimate their child's IQ, will place their son at 115 and their daughter at 107?
    Marshalling a wealth of data with precision and insight, and including interviews with pioneering women such as Baroness Hale, Mary Beard, and Bernadine Evaristo, Mary Ann Sieghart exposes unconscious bias in this fresh, feminist take on how to address and counteract systemic sexism in ways that benefit us all.
