    Ep. 57 - Free Thoughts with Bowen & Twyman, Ep. 8

    Bowen and Twyman discuss the meaning of recent protests at college campuses. The conflict in the Middle East is not black and white but nuanced and complex, despite many believing they know the answer at the age of 21. Bowen and Twyman begin the episode with a review of a recent incident at the University of Mississippi between a black female protestor and a group of white frat boys, including one who chose to make monkey sounds as provocation. Are we witnessing an epidemic of cosplay throughout the land? Bowen and Twyman tackle this question through the lens of dogma, slogan words, and the use of clothing as political symbol. Should one wear the Star of David at a pro-Palestine protest, for example? The answers are not easy, save for the insight that the right side of history is non-conforming. Bowen and Twyman conclude with the profound observation that white Southerners are the only defeated Americans living on American soil. People should not be forever stained with the history of their region.

Breath of fresh air

I’ve listened to many of these speakers on other platforms, but it’s nice to have them in one place. Also, I’ve been introduced to some new folks via this podcast. This is a refreshing breath of air, thought, opinion, and future hope in a frequently logic free zone that we live in as of late in the US, perpetuated by the very narrow media sources and further selection bias mainly possible by our news resources. Thanks to you all for this important work. Thought provoking… and truly pleasurable to listen to as well.

Black People with Perspectives

Much needed antidote for ideological rhetoric and politically correct cliches and dogmas. The universe of true thought diversity is spotlighted in this wonderful podcast. I have learned much and been introduced to extraordinary thinkers, teachers and activists across the political spectrum. I didn’t know that thousands of Black Africans are enslaved TODAY by other Africans as the world looks the other away. How can this be?

So refreshing!

I love this podcast! The future looks brighter with this content available. Please add some volume to the recordings… if that’s something I can ask for?
