Tanner Colby is the author of Some of My Best Friends Are Black: The Strange Story of Integration in America. In 2015, he co-founded and co-hosted the popular if short-lived podcast Our National Conversation About Conversations About Race.
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.
Anna Holmes, Fazeelat Aslam, and Tanner Colby talk about the assertion that President Obama made in his farewell address that we’re better off in terms of race than we have been in the past 10, 20, 30 years.
Anna Holmes, Tanner Colby, and Fazeelat Aslam discuss listener feedback to episode #1701: “Will You Be My Black Friend?”
