Political Art/Social Justice Art

Greatly appreciate your thoughts and guests thoughts. I listened to the Chloe Valdary episode yesterday, which was great! At some point y’all are speaking about Paradox her music venture but also art and “social justice” Art. I believe you both agreed that the Art world has yet to experience the “wokeness” concept on a large scale.
I work specifically in the art world in Atlanta and southeast and the “wokeness” culture is alive and well. It’s tricky because you have an overhaul of museums all across the country trying to support older black artists/southern art/folk art which is fine and good to a certain degree. However it’s turning into this interesting celebration of very mediocre(with out paradox)political art that is influencing the next generations. I’m speaking directly towards 2D and 3D Art.
Anyway thanks for doing what you do.

Philosophers?

Huge fan of your podcast and written work. As a fellow philosophy major I would love to see a philosopher on the show, since the subject tends to come up every so often (e.g. ethics, mind, religion).

Mr.Tyson

I have recently discovered you Mr. Hughes. I appreciate your thoughtfulness on tough topics. I understand Mr. Tyson is an intimidating interview. That said, have confidence in yourself. You were clearly less forceful in advancing you positions than I have heard you in the past. You can Go “toe to toe” with anyone. Tap into some of some of the skills of your friend Mr. Loury.
