Podcast Eight Season Three- Stop Killing Indigenous Women
As part of an ongoing project I'm doing for my race, crime, and justice class, in this podcast I discuss land histories and how the very land that we live on has been stolen from indigenous people. I use this history of theft and genocide to discuss the high rates of murder and violence against indigenous women taking place today.
Podcast Seven Season Three- For Lori and Britney
In this podcast, I discuss the way our society has responded both to Lori Harvey and Britney Spears. Misogyny is so dangerous and the way that the media perpetuates it has really dangerous implications for how women are allowed to live and express their freedom. My hope is that this podcast contributes to a larger conversation about women being able to live freely and holding the media accountable for perpetuating sexism.
Podcast Six Season Three- The New Jim Crow, Jan. 6th, And The Racialization Of Protest
In my latest podcast episode I discuss how protest, crime, and deviance are racialized and how Alexander's The New Jim Crow really illuminates what took place in Washington D.C. on January 6th.
Podcast Five Season Three- Colorism Isn't Clickbait
Colorism is systemic. It cannot and should not be reduced to your "feelings". Coming off of the heels of Donald Trump's presidency and this general culture of thinking it's ok to say bizarre and contentious things just because, colorism shouldn't ever be used as clickbait for your views, likes, and social media engagement. It is real. It is painful. It causes irreparable damage. When you discuss colorism, please show deference.
Protecting Black Women in Public Spaces
On the eve of Kamala Harris being sworn in as our new vice president of the United States of America, I've continuously felt the need to speak about protecting black women, and especially black women who live their lives in the public realm. As black women continue to ascend into increasingly public roles and positions, the attacks on them will amplify. Tune in as I discuss why it is necessary to protect black women and why black women should always prioritize their mental, emotional, and physical well-being.

Topics and discussions on point
I think I what I enjoy most about this podcast is that it stays true to educating and diving I to topics that we sometimes fray away from or try to hide from. I love that each discussion features the plight of black people- especially those underrepresented. Can’t wait for the next post!
