Lacks diversity and awareness

I really enjoy Elizabeth and Stephanie's personalities and humor. They put out some great content and cover many subects in the vast space of wellness and new age spirituality. What really bothers me about this show and so many others in the wellness space, is that it is so incredibly and disproportionately dominated by white self proclaimed experts on every subject. It is bazar to me that many of these spiritual and wellness practices come from black, brown and yellow countries however 90+% of the guests speaking are white. That does seem intentional because in Los Angeles there is no reason why you can not find an actual chinese feng shui master, and Indian yoga guru, an Arab astrologer or a native person to speak on the plethora of native wellness practices so often covered. They have had like 10 or less of POC on their 2 years running podcast which is inexcusable. The whitest woman ever calls herself Guru Jagat (not a birth name) lectures on Kundalini Yoga. They even had a white woman Buti Yoga expert on the show explain why racism is a "toxic mindset" that black people carry with them. When they received backlash, they quickly edited that part out of the episode and gave a VERY indignant half apology and said they "weren't here to hold our hands" if we were offended. Kinda hypocritical since Stephanie will rant for 20 minutes when she is offended because her white feminism micro agresssions get inflamed by our President. All this was enough for me to unsubscribe. I sincerely hope they do better in the future. As of right now it's just white women profiting while helping other white women profit from indigenous, arab, asian, black cultural practices without as much as a nod for where these practices actually come from. This does come from a place of love, and hurt. Namaste.
