Episode 2 - The Visuals of Branding, and Social Scenes From the COVID World
Play episode · 22 min

What does Aunt Jemima look like? How about Uncle Ben? Sports teams with offensive names don't have images associated with those monickers, do they? With businesses facing real pressure to change racially-charged logos, mascots and team names, Christine and JJ discuss the visuals of controversial brands. Later, the conversation shifts to descriptions of the COVID lockdown. Join us for an episode recorded days before major announcements by some of the discussed brands!

For links to images of Aunt Jemima, some further reading on the origins of Chicago's NHL team name, and an update on other appropriated names, check out our Talk Description to Me blog.
