Episode 2: This Thing Called Bias
Play • 24 min

Aware that racism existed, it wasn’t until he was in his teens that Ryan realized that it was happening all around him, whether he saw it or not. In this episode, he shares the uncomfortable moment in which he had to confront his own bias and discusses the privileges of being a white, middle-class man in America. 

This conversation raises the question, will we ever get to a place in which people can acknowledge their own privilege without taking personal offense?
