Thought provoking, compelling

The subjects are difficult but this podcast manages to make them understandable, with stories, history, and analysis. I have listened to Seeing White and am half way through the Man series. The hosts have a way of talking about these issues that is calm, rational, and accessible. Highly recommend!

Seeing White

This series is so illuminating and thought provoking. It has motivated me to think differently. It has made me think more about how society works and how to navigate it as well as improve it. John does an excellent job of creating. Chenjerai does an excellent job of analysis and reflection. Extremely compelling work.

Amazing Series for White bodied People!

Scene on radio’s production of “Seeing White” is an exemplary resource for individuals and teams doing racial justice work. Putting the onus on white bodied people to examine the history of white supremacy and locate in a new narrative is essential for the transformation of our society. As a spiritual director, it’s helping me grow in understanding of systemic issues that need to be opened and identified in order to heal and be whole. I’m reminded of Faith Spotted-Eagles phrase: “freedom from denial.” Yes. Listening to this podcast, I have an opportunity to grow and be free from denial of what white supremacy has done to me, my brothers and sisters, our ancestors, and our world. I’m hopeful for our healing. Thank you scene-on radio!
