75 episodes

Listen to actors, educators and writers Toussaint and Joetta for their weekly podcast of current events, life in the audition room, and moments of double consciousness. Questioning authority (and sometimes reality) or biting tongues, the duo reports their lives as performers and how they navigate their way as artists.

Hailing from Minneapolis, MN (a city and state with some of the highest racial disparity in education and law enforcement), Double Consciousness also explores the W.E.B. DuBois concept of what it means to have a divided identity and be tried by dominant culture politics and social norms.

Double Consciousness is part of Urban Home Companion, and is published weekly on iTunes, SoundCloud, and Stitcher.

New Listener

Where have you been all my life?! Lol
I’m a new listener, and I must say, you guys get me through my work day. You have a new fan here in St.Paul, MN, and my husband was even listening in a bit this morning. Keep doing what you do and talking about real issues. I swear your most recent show had me in tears,(both laughing and crying...) It’s a sad world we live in, but I can honestly say getting through the mundane part of it (work) makes it much more easier.

Thank you!!!

Checking my whiteness.

I’m one of those guys who ‘has black friends’, in fact I’m friends with the hosts, but this podcast has opened my eyes to an experience completely different from my own. Toussaint and Joetta openly discuss the types of issues that would be difficult to ask of your black friends but as a very white guy I always wanted to know. Their perspective takes the headlines we’ve all seen and they give it a personal perspective by relating similar things that have happened in their lives. I started listening as a way to support my friends, kept listening as a way to know them better and now I feel like this is the kind of podcast that could really make a difference in the lives of people who listen. I have always liked these two as friends but I am proud of what they have chosen to do with their voices and I admire the honesty and courage they bring to every episode.
