Unicorn Library: Sharks in the Time of Saviors

the book by Kawai Strong Washburn

In this episode we take down one final book for the year from the Unicorn Library's shelves and spend some time discussing Kawai Strong Washburn's debut novel, Sharks in the Time of Saviors. This story follows the Flores family, struggling with the impacts of capitalism and colonialism and signs from the supernatural in 1990s/2000s Hawai'i.

We discuss what we've learned from this book; how we relate to the story, themes, and characters; and why we think it's a great read for all unicorns, even if you don't have a connection to Hawai'i.

Still on the fence about reading it? Here's a taste of the beautiful language:

  • "I could see him there, the waves and tides and gods dragging him around. But I'm in the water, too, I wanted to say. No one's watching to see if I stay afloat."
  • "How long was I stupid enough to believe we were indestructible? But that's the problem with the present, it's never the thing you're holding, only the thing you're watching, later, from a distance so great the memory might as well be a spill of stars outside a windshield at twilight"

We also wrap up the year with our happy places, while Rocking Around the Christmas Tree was not either of our picks, it could be a bridge between the two. We also give a brief taste of what we're looking forward to in the new year after the plugs.

Happy new year and we wish you a safe and happy 2022.

Reminder: drop us a line or voicemail with your thoughts on HOME - what does home mean to you? how can we find it as biracial unicorns?

Dani and Dameca Ruin Christmas...Again

Unicorns vs. The Hallmark Channel Part II

In this episode we discuss our true feelings about some of the most "beloved" holiday traditions.

Throw on your coziest sweater and grab your favorite warm beverage, because we are sharing all the feelings this week, and they are festive. This episode we decide to “ruin” Christmas once more and discuss an old friend of the show, the Hallmark Channel, and more specific their infamous Christmas countdown. We first brought up the alarming amount of holiday movies that were produced by the Hallmark Channel and their noticeable lack of diversity back in 2018. Here we are, three years later and we’re checking in on their 2021 line-up. Do you think we’ll see any improvement from this years 41 NEW holiday movies? Listen and find out. But Hallmark isn’t the only topic being ruined this season!In this episode you’ll hear:

  • The Unicorn’s take on a stylish Santa
  • Our views on the mischievous “Elf On A Shelf”
  • Our favorite Hallmark Christmas Movie Titles 
  • How the projection of “white, small-town, American” in the majority of Hallmark Christmas films perpetuates what is and is not consider ideal, moral, or wholesome. 
  • The new problematic channel, the Great American Country Family Network or GAC and its new Christmas movies 

We wrap up our episode with a bow this week with our delightful Happy Place, hint*- it’s just a few of our favorite things.

Woke College

Bridging Diversity Groups, Identity, and Friendship

In this episode we take on a topic brought to us in a listener's email.

It’s our delight to be answering a listener question this week, and it’s all about building bridges between diverse groups both on and off college campuses. Our listener Zoe emailed us about her experience as a Biracial Unicorn and asked us our approach to “woke colleges.” We value these questions deeply on our show because they are very much the back bone as to why Biracial Unicorns exist. So this week we discuss some foundational topics through the lens of the woke college experience. This week you’ll hear us discuss:

  • Why this topic is so poignant to Unicorns
  • How “woke-ness” is not a linear journey, nor is it your identity 
  • It is not a mixed person “job” to unite all diverse groups
  • What is diversity anyway?
  • Why can’t all BIPOC just “come together”?
  • How shared trauma is not enough to unify diverse groups
  • How shared joy may be the key to building bridges

As we end the show, it’s all about cozy comforts for this week’s Happy Place -hint*, It’s all about holiday dysfunctions and nerdy spin-off’s. 

A special thank you to our listener Zoe who took the time to write in. We truly appreciate it and it’s why we do what we do. As always, we welcome questions or topics that our listeners are interested in. Our information on how to get ahold of us is listed down below.

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.
