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, but very here for these two’s chemistry and energy.
How in the hell?!
How did you not know it was Anita Baker. I was really offended. 😂😂 great show!
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.
