Climate Change

It's Getting Hot In Here: A Discussion On Climate Change and Climate Anxiety

In this episode we discuss our dread and concern about climate change while grappling with the concept of climate anxiety.

Today on the show we finally express our uneasiness about the environmental state of our world right now. That’s right, we are discussing climate change and putting a name to that feeling of doom that comes with worrying for the environment. For our Unicorns out there who are feeling overwhelmed and anxious about our ever warming atmosphere, you are not alone. We encourage those of you listening to THIS episode to also check out an early episode we did where we approach a similar topic, it’s linked down below along with an article mentioned in today’s episode. In this episode you’ll hear:

  • Our thoughts on the Carbon Footprint- Where did this concept come from? Why was it created? And who does it impact?
  • Why it seems white people dominate the environmental field. 
  • How concern BIPOC are about the environment.
  • What does race even have to do with climate change?
  • Climate Anxiety -What is it? What do we do with it? 
  • Does climate anxiety impact white people more? 
  • How addressing white supremacy can ultimately free up an invaluable resource to fight climate change- the resource being POC’s. 
  • Who’s responsible is it to ultimate deal with climate change?
  • How do we address the staggering issue of climate change in our daily lives?

As we end the show we “cool-off” in our Happy Placehint - it’s cozy, it’s comforting, it’s quintessential Dani and Dameca.

Settler-Colonialism

...unsettling

In this episode we explore the huge topic of Settler Colonialism and our own relationships to that system.

If you thought we were going to let the fall season continue without an episode about colonialism, then you don’t know your Unicorns. This week we start with a land acknowledgment (and in true Unicorn fashion, we have mixed-feelings about land acknowledgments). We then attempt in 60 minutes to summarize the complexity and pervasive topic that is settler-colonialism and it’s significance to mixed-race BIPOC.  In this episode you’ll hear…

  • What sets settler-colonialism apart from various other types of colonization 
  • Us share the inward battle of the mixed-race existence as a result of colonialism 
  • What are the  “camps” or roles we participate in a settler-colonialists society 
  • Why it’s important for you to understand your role in settler-colonialism 
  • If you think you have a Native-American Great-Grandmother, you probably don’t…
  • The attempted erasure of Indigenous people 
  • The ongoing byproduct of settlers-colonialism- “one drop rule”, blood quantum, shift in power dynamics within Indigenous people groups
  • Why American society in particular is NOT (and may never be) ready to “decolonize” settler-colonialism. 

We bring our show to a close with our Happy Place *hint- it’s all about bootylicious TedTalks and Netflix phenomenons.

Shadowbans & Silos on Social Media

social media to center and silo people from the margins

In this episode we take a look at shadowbanning and other challenges POC, WOC, and other people outside the "mainstream" face when connecting on social media.

Influencers, creators, and algorithms! We revisit the topic of social media this week, but this time we are discussing the mysterious beast that is shadow-banning. Difficult to define and harder to prove, content creators of size, of color, women, queer, and disabled seem to be experiencing this occurrence at higher levels. Wether it’s stricter censorship or blocking from potential “views” and “likes” we’re seeing how content is being shifted and controlled. How does this impact movements like Black Lives Matter? And what does this mean for other racially charged content that falls under the “freedom of speech”? We explore these questions and these topics in the show:

Examples of shadow-banning Influencers and Tiktok fame Reporting inappropriate content Black Lives Matter The hypocrisy/double standers of what content is or isn’t banned How representation still matters on social media The dangers AND benefits of siloed social media content The added challenges (and sometimes danger) for marginalized content creaters 

This episode's Happy Place - hint*, we’ll have you accessorizing in the rain!
