Episode 6 / Whiteness

May 22nd, 2017 | 1 hr 20 mins

We took this topic on with no guest to bail us out! Listen to Rob and Taylor talk about woke suburbia, poisons ‘n’ toxins, fidgeting, and Whiteness. WHITENESS. We poke and prod woke suburbia, white fragility, guilt, walking the walk, confederate monuments, and complicated family stuff. We discuss creativity as more than the act of making things, but we did make things also. Taylor concocts an object to help him stay frosty while digging into fidget-inducing whiteness studies. Rob looks to interruptive technologies to help him navigate life in the smog of whiteness. A big thanks to Hương Ngô for this very challenging challenge!

Listeners! Please let us know what you think about this episode!. Also, how do you stay informed and move through your day thoughtfully? How do you stay curious about daunting topics like whiteness? How do you turn talk… into walk?
