On this episode from @ewbpod, Mahlon (@SuperMahrio) and Jason Bradshaw (@JBradshaw01) have a brilliant conversation about how the spectrum of Blackness expands far beyond the extremities its often given by both Black and non-Black people alike. Right from the start, we talk about Jason's love for both science and science fiction in particular. We talk about how these interests led him to study science for his undergrad degree, but that same passion for science fiction has at points been presented as a 'non-stereotypical' thing for Black men to be involved in. We talk about how reflecting on ..read more

On this episode from @ewbpod, Mahlon (@SuperMahrio) and Dr Melissa Wilson (@Drawn2Intellect) have a blast talking about the ways in which the work of anti-oppression is both beneficial for our immediate selves and is at the same time, bigger than us.

We have a great discussion about how we ..read more

The impact of this would influence his work in youth development more broadly. We consider how undertaking the role of Head of Behaviour in a Black body is a complex navigation of working within the c ..read more

On this episode from @ewbpod, Mahlon (@SuperMahrio) and Chantelle (IG - @Chantelle38 / ? - @_ChanRaq) have a conversation that is as much a journey of self reflection as it is one that is a reflection of working within the education system at various levels. We talk about reflections of working with students throughout their educational career, including encouraging young boys to cry as a means of expression, (as opposed to suppressing it and then sanctioning other associated expressions) and how the experience of simply trying to get through university as a BAME student can cause one not take ..read more
