Challenging, Provocative, Another Way to have the “Conversation”

As a white middle aged white woman I say, if we want to undo racism in this white-dominant culture in all its forms (it is destructive to ALL peoples) and get to a level playing field for one and all, we have to accept it will be a messy, uncomfortable and hard going. A lot of approaches to and forums for educating whites and making advances towards a level playing field will have to be tried and explored. An intelligent, humorous tact - with many a truth might be said in between and in the jests - is a good one to have. Dark Tank at its best can be this. But like so many of these approaches, it can at times miss the mark (e.g., be too too biting, tame or off course), but it’s worth a listen and support. Keep at it Yedoye!

Yedoye Travis was in Russian Doll and I haven’t heard him mention it.

funny and clever podcast. I enjoy the host and the topics but the quality of the white guests can vary pretty wildly. Great way to hear about new comics though. Yedoye has a pretty nice voice too, even though sometimes I’m not sure what he is trying to say. Audio quality needs a little work.

PERFECT [Street Fighter II voice]

I never write reviews but this Podcast is worth speaking on. I only found out about this podcast from Get in The Robot where Yedoye's commentary stood out. This podcast is necessary and if you weren't so triggered from its premise you'd realize it's SATIRE. To an extent that is, of course there are definitely real truths in all of this. But, all in all worth the listen. Btw, reverse racism is a hilarious unrealistic concept😂. White ppl telling other ppl they're being shamed for being white is hilarious. I digress, enjoy this refreshing content from both demographics.
