Travelling While Mixed (Rerun)

3 months ago

The unicorns are taking some time off from doing full episodes this summer. We will be back next week with a new minisode.

In the meantime, check out this episode from the summer of 2020.


In this episode we take a look at travel with a focus on traveling while brown and a woman.

It’s the last days of summer and most of us are still living that “stay-cation” life, so today we want you to live vicariously through our episode today as we talk about travel.

But first, we want to acknowledge that between the high cost, extra charges, availability and the impact flights have on the environment, we recognize that travel IS a privilege. It is with this mindset that we discuss our experience with traveling while being women of color. In this episode we talk about: -Our own experiences with travel i.e., why we enjoy travel even with its difficulties. -random selection and being pat down -traveling when your family are different shades -issues with authorities -the impact Covid-19 has had on travel and its parallels to 9/11 -Cross country driving as BIPOC and the dangers that need to be considered when visiting unfamiliar areas -The Green Book -Women traveling on their own

We also branch into representation within the travel industry where we discuss -The stereotypes of traveling -POC working in the travel industry (article mentioned in the episode is linked below)

It’s a special Happy Place today: it’s our dream vacation!! hint
