Genuine Episode 5 Turning Towards Discomfort

Genuine: Episode 5: Turning Towards Discomfort

Welcome to Genuine, Episode 5! We're calling this "Turning Towards Discomfort" because of the experimental roundtable conversation that Carlton hosted between Sarah and Carlton's colleague Noah.

Carlton invited Sarah and Noah to explore what it means to be white...to examine aspects of race, and to be willing to turn towards discomfort in order to see what happens when we do so.

You will hear original music by Jim Infantino and Jon Sousa. Towards the end of the episode, you'll hear some car radio sounds and ocean sounds that Sarah recorded in Maine at Portland Head Light. At the very end of the episode, we'll get to hear Wolf van Lieshout from the Netherlands read the credits, and we'll hear Natanya Bittman define what genuine means to her - make sure to listen long enough to hear that!

Thanks to Nicole Arsenault and Team Podcast for the editorial and mixing work. Thanks to the growing ranks of Patrons of Genuine (we're up to 23!!!) for supporting the development of this podcast!!!
