5 Mixed Podcasts To Keep You Entertained During Lockdown

Feel like you’ve exhausted every board game, baked every type of bread possible, and streamed the whole of Netflix? Banish the lockdown boredom by listening to these five amazing podcasts that explore the mixed race experience.

Some Kind of Brown

Hosted by Natalie Evans, Some Kind of Brown is a safe space for people of all mixes and backgrounds.

As a multiracial woman, having grown up on the ‘Bible Belt’ of the Southern USA, Natalie shares her experiences and chats with a range of special guests on mixed issues.

“My hope is that this page will grow to be a little piece of “home” for all of us– a place to share and verbalize our own experiences with one another– because no matter your mix, you will always find solidarity here at Some Kind of Brown.”

Natalie Evans

Some Kind of Brown’s latest podcasts collaborate with Soph from Mixed Present, a popular Instagram account which is run by and for mixed people.

My American Melting Pot

My American Melting Pot is a bi-weekly podcast that revolves around conversations and stories “about the intersection of Race and Real Life“.

Lori L. Tharps, award-winning author and journalist, started the podcast with the aim of dismantling white supremacy, celebrating diversity, and challenging racism.

Don't be Racist: You Can't Say That My American Meltingpot

Last week on the podcast, we talked about the importance of using your voice to confront racist behavior. On today's episode, we're flipping the script to discuss what NOT to say as an anti-racist warrior. In other words, how to avoid ever having someone say to you, 'You can't say that, that's racist.' Listen in to hear my list of questions, sentences and phrases you should remove from your vocabulary and why…if you want to be a good anti-racist warrior. Note, white people, this episode really is for you.  Clearly this episode would take hours if I actually covered every single word or phrase that could be considered racist. So, I don't do that. Instead, I’m sharing a short list of common phrases, questions and sentences that people say, that for the most part are considered racist or racially insensitive when uttered by white people. Of course, there is always an exception to the rules I'm sharing – and nuance and context matter too – but if you remove these phrases from your daily chatter, I promise it will aid you on your journey to being a good anti-racist. Links and Additional Resources on What Not to SayThe racist history of mispronouncing and renaming people of color.Teen Vogue explains why 'Black on Black crime' is a racist phrase that falsely pathologizes the Black community.A hilarious video that demonstrates why you shouldn't ask Asian Americans and Latinos where they are from.A heartfelt column from the Chicago Tribune that explains why we should make the shift from 'slave' to 'enslaved' when referencing African Americans in antebellum America.Proof, that hard shell tacos with tomatoes and cheddar are not Mexican food.You can grab a copy of Anti-Racist Baby for yourself or a friend on the My American Meltingpot online bookstore. And don't forget to visit My American Meltingpot for more resources and inspiration.
