minority support group is a podcast dedicated to creating a safe space for people who may not have always felt like they belong somewhere. sometimes, it’s hard to find your place. maybe you’re like us, and you’ve felt like you’re too *insert race here* for your white friends, but that you’re too white for your *insert race here* friends. we’ve been navigating that world our entire lives, and after about 25 years, we realized something — it’s time tor us to carve out a space for ourselves and invite others into it. we’re passionate about telling and hearing stories, and that’s exactly what we plan on doing with our podcast. every week, we’ll delve into a topic that we have experience with (identity crises, going through high school as a minority, being the only person of color in a group of friends, being women in the STEM fields, how the BLM movement changed us, etc.), and we’ll share what we’ve been through, what we’ve learned, and even what we’ve unlearned. and we encourage all of you to do the same. listen, learn, and share. we want to hear your thoughts and your experiences, because no two people’s are the same. don’t let the name fool you. our podcast may be called “minority” support group, but it is a community dedicated to anyone who wants to join. that means whether you yourself are a minority (and keep in mind, we aren’t limiting the definition of minority solely to race — there are so many different kinds of people out there!), you consider yourself an ally, or you simply want to learn a little bit more about the minority experience, you are more than welcome! we promise there’s a place for you here. come along with us on this journey. join the minority support group.

    this week we're talking about microaggressions, something that is close to a daily occurrence for us. in this episode, we dive into different forms and themes of racial microaggressions as well as our own experiences with them. spoiler alert: microaggressions are confusing! it's hard being able to determine what is microaggressive behavior sometimes, and we're still trying to figure that out for ourselves. so join us for the support group this week and take a deep dive into some definitions and stories!

Great for anybody!

The love of my life is a minority and as a white male it has been difficult to fully appreciate the discrimination that she has dealt with her whole life. Listening to MSG helps make things more clear for me. Keep it coming!

so relatable!!

wow i have to say i can relate to so much of this podcast’s content! growing up as a minority in america definitely has its struggles and often it’s normalized how much hardship we must go through to find our place in this society. thank you for creating and sharing this safe space with all of us🥺

informational & entertaining

these two talk about real issues while sharing their experiences and keeping the mood somewhat light throughout. the content is really relatable and they throw in some facts and definitions to keep it educational. love the episodes they’ve put out so far, and i can’t wait for more!
