Chantelle Lewis: De-essentialising Mixed Race
59 min

How do we have more nuanced conversations about being mixed race that account for more than an internal struggle with the binary Black and white? Chantelle Lewis is an activist, researcher, sociologist and podcaster based at Goldsmiths – and this her beat. Chantelle’s work is focused on structural racism, accountability, and class inequality and her doctoral research explores Black mixed race families in a predominantly white town in the Midlands. She takes us through some of the initial findings in her research, including how a lack of racial literacy in these families results in children who don’t speak about the racism they encounter in the world. We discuss what led her to this research, what she’s learned about how she navigates the world as a mixed-Black woman and names the people and comrades who have helped expand her understanding and her scholarship. She says that we must look beyond our individual identities to understand what our mixed-race identities afford us, what our proximity to whiteness subjects us to and her thoughts on why it’s important that we mixed Black people reflect and think critically about our mixed-ness.

But I'm A Cheerleader w/ Jamie Babbit - Ep. 160
This episode is a Dyke dream come true because we get to spend an hour talking to DYKON Jamie Babbit about one of the most iconic gay films of all time just before it's big re-release! But I'm A Cheerleader is truly the gift that keeps on giving, and we get to hear from Jamie how it all came together, what it's like to look back on it, and what has changed since its 1999 release. We ask all our burning questions about Natasha Lyonne and Clea Duvall, and the answers do not disappoint. Look our for the director's cut this December 8 with added scenes and all sorts of fun extras. Plus, we tease our take on Happiest Season, Melody reveals she's a marketing mastermind, and Carolyn officially becomes a homeowner/homo-owner. Be sure to keep an eye out on our Patreon this week for the comprehensive Happiest Season review with past guest Erica Rose. And finally, we wrap it up with a question from a sexually frustrated listener. -Get extra content, Ad Free episodes, support the pod, and get to know other listeners by joining our Patreon community.
