Episode 10: Let’s Talk About Race


In this powerful, important episode, Oteil and Mike focus on the topic of race. Inviting listeners into their conversation, the two discuss the activists and change makers who have fought against racism throughout history, and what’s needed to change the racism that exists deep within our system. Oteil talks about his family history and his own experiences with racism, explains the “one drop” rule, and why we all need to educate ourselves in order to understand the issues and ultimately, effect change.
