We wrap up the show with Anna Holmes, Baratunde Thurston, and Tanner Colby reflecting on what they’ve learned through this experiment in multiracial dialogue, and the ways in which we can’t talk, don’t talk, would rather not talk, but intermittently, fitfully, embarrassingly do talk about culture, identity, power, and privilege in our most-definitely-not-yet-pre-post-yet-still-very-racial society.
Anna Holmes, Raquel Cepeda, and Irin Carmon try to absorb the reality of Trump’s now official presidency, and discuss the Women’s March happening just hours from this podcast hitting your feed.
