Greater than is a storytelling platform. We tell stories about people and organizations that overcome, that keep on despite the desolation they've seen or been through. And we ask ourselves, how can we use these stories to tackle systems of injustice, inequality, racism, poverty, and shift narratives?
Hosted by Dhanya Addanki and Jenn Junod, this show curates spaces for uncomfortable but necessary conversations about vulnerable issues. It's designed for an audience who isn't afraid to be frustrated at the state of our world because they understand hope prevails.
Race: The Finale
Join us for the final episode of the Race series. Jenn and Dhanya discuss how much new knowledge they have, how their perceptions have changed, and even some of the prejudice they've faced.
Race: The Power and Construct of Supremacy
In this installment of the Race series, we delve into how normalized White Supremacy is in our culture. We speak with filmmaker Darnley Hodge about his new documentary series called American LOWS ( Legacy of White Supremacy) about power, race, and who exactly invented the constructs that we've grown so accustomed to.
