Do you live in a nation that has disinformed citizens since it’s start? Dr. bird’s eye view is a short podcast series where Dr. Bernadette “bird” Bowen discusses how people have been and continue to be miseducated, causing us to hurt ourselves (and each other) in confusion. She explores how dominant ideas of who and what is “normal” have always been narrow and harmful. You don’t have to have any degrees to do what they do. Everyone has a perspective to tell that can enhance and/or reveal our understanding of the world. On one hand, more people have started righteously challenging the many inequities that (mostly) old dead White men deliberately built into foundations as features. To this day, their founding logics and practices poison our livelihoods. On the other, we have gained skepticism and lost significant faith in "expert" knowledge and recommendations, instead favoring the most charismatic sounding — anybody — found online. Everything is connected. We only know what we know. Anything becomes normal in repetition.
How Do We Learn?
Unpacking: “Do you live in a nation that has disinformed citizens since it’s start?”
Reminders: You don’t have to have any degrees to do what I do. Everyone has a perspective to tell that can enhance and/or reveal our understanding of the world. Everything is connected. We only know what we know. Everything becomes normal in repetition.
Breakdown: In this episode I will be describing some communication basics from my Dr. bird’s eye view. Specifically, the ways I’ve learned about how we all come to learn about ourselves, each other, and everything else. While you listen, I invite you to recollect on your own lived experiences. Consider how and where you learned about how the world is, what you’re capable of, and potentials of what can (or cannot) happen in the future...
There is no shame in admitting we have been miseducated. And when we learn better, we can begin to do better. Everyone deserves better than this harmful world that was built long before any of us were born. After this discussion, I introduce the basic format for remaining episodes: the critical media ecological AAA of the present-COVID-19 and monkeypox context.
Dr. bird’s eye view explains how everything is connected, we only know what we know, and anything becomes normal in repetition. Full episodes coming very soon.
