Good Muslim, Bad Muslim
A monthly podcast featuring Tanzila ‘Taz’ Ahmed and Zahra Noorkbakhsh about the good and the bad about the American Muslim female experience.
Co-discussants Anna Holmes, Baratunde Thurston, Raquel Cepeda and Tanner Colby host a lively multiracial, interracial conversation about the ways we can’t talk, don’t talk, would rather not talk, but intermittently, fitfully, embarrassingly do talk about culture, identity, politics, power, and privilege in our pre-post-yet-still-very-racial America.
Listen on SoundCloud, iTunes or Stitcher for Latino-focused episodes ranging from current events like Donald Trump kicking Jorge Ramos out of his press conference, “anchor babies” and Mexico’s drug war to evergreen cultural pieces spotlighting music and artists from Latin America or, of course, the Latino USA.
This podcast from The New York Times is hosted by Wesley Morris and Jenna Wortham. They cover all your pop culture favorites, from RuPaul to Girls to Beyoncé. You’ll laugh, you’ll learn, and if that lineup of topics doesn’t sell you on the show, Morris and Wortham’s fun, natural banter will.
The first season of the show by Bustle focused primarily on size and how it intersects with race and gender. This second season, they’re asking questions that push the body positive conversation beyond size. Check out “The Bodcast” on ACast and iTunes.
This podcast is from The New Republic, hosted by Jamil Smith. The podcast is centered on race, but always explores the intersectionality of racial identity with other social systems such as gender, sexual orientation, body image and beauty standards, economic issues, etc. Often featuring interviews with various experts, researchers, journalists, and real everyday people, Intersection is a really important look at the way racial identity fits into a much larger social landscape.
Two hilarious (and occasionally drunk) women talk about everything from current events to workplace racism to squirrels in this BuzzFeed podcast.
