We have reached the end of the first season of The DäBU Podcast and what a powerful experience it has been so far for ourselves! We hope it has been equally as impactful for our listeners too. There have been so many difficult but important issues covered and we decided to collect the best of them in a Four Part Series beginning with Part 1 today. The systemic racism that permeates all parts of American society urgently needs to be challenged, and as listeners have heard many times before, this is our mission in this show. We put a lot of careful thought into the issues we discuss here on The DäBU. The stories we share are not collections of anecdotal information but plain and simple facts.
We kick things off on today’s show with the story of how the show started. We decided to take the conversations we were having in real life and put them on air so people of all backgrounds and racial groups could listen in and engage in our conversation.
After that, you will hear sound clips from our past discussions on the show, as well as from across the internet, that highlight their main concerns about American society today. We get into police violence, discrimination in the workplace and healthcare system, and the weaponization of whiteness against Black people. We also touch on respectability politics, the different severities racism can take and the danger of the so-called minor forms, and the impacts of discrimination on the psyche of human beings across the racial spectrum. As always, we end off with a few paths to resolution, so please join us today for some of the most impactful moments of the show so far.
