I absolutely love this human being, Shirani M. Pathak, and all the amazing work she has been doing to dismantle trauma resulting from supremacy culture. Shirani is following up her first book Fierce Authenticity with Fierce Authenticity 2.0, adding in critical information and resources about how trauma, tending to our nervous systems, and supremacy culture have to be addressed when it comes to understanding our wounds. Her transition from her first one to this one is a beautiful demonstration of how we are always in process of understanding our own conditioning within supremacy culture. Shira ..read more

In this episode, I review the season a bit, reflecting on the fact that the majority of these episodes were released during the pandemic!

I talk about what we dove into for Season 1 and how I'm shifting Season 2 to be more in alignment with my passions. Thank you to my parents, my brother, Dalya Guerin, Gina Manola, all my Patreon patrons, Tiffany Wong, Shin Kawasaki, and Quincy Surasmith for your support!

The one where I talk to my friends about Indian Matchmaking
MigrAsians

1y ago
Indian Matchmaking aired on Netflix in mid-July, and every South Asian person I knew binge watched the show which follows Indian matchmaker "Sima from Mumbai" Taparia between India and the United States while she attempts to match clients with their future spouses. Everyone I spoke to had their opinions about this show - some found it entertaining, others found it offensive and cringe-worthy, some found it boring; most found it a combination of all of these. But, more notably, each South Asian person I spoke with noticed how it highlighted upper-caste Hindus with some Sikh representation. The ..read more

Suhad Khatib (she/her) is an artist with Palestinian roots who was born in Oman and grew up in Jordan. She is a futurologist, creative director, filmmaker, and public speaker. I connected with Suhad on Instagram @suhadizms. Her art drew me in immediately, and her voice kept me listening. I have listened to various parts of this interview over and over because I am mesmerized by the way Suhad talks about the world, our futures, and hope. She talks about the Massacre of Lyd, the question of Palestine, the geopolitics of home, the connection between Palestinian and Black liberation, and, of cour ..read more
