Not About You

About the Show Not About You is a podcast about identity and social justice. The premise of the show is that a white, straight, cis-gendered man connects with folks with different lived experiences from his own about the ways parts of their identities bump up against injustices. The conversations focus on race, gender, religion, representation, protests, politics, relationships and more. My hope is that this series leads to more conversation and interaction. I want folks who are hesitant or new to standing in these struggles to feel more ready to show up for change and ask questions of themselves. I want historically excluded voices to have new ways to be amplified and supported. Some of the questions we get into: What is a question or reaction you deal with a lot about some part of your identity that you’re tired of responding to? What assumptions do you experience folks making about you? What does joy or humor look like inside your family or community? In what ways do you experience privilege? -Levi Weinhagen

    I'm a faculty at Goddard College and wondering about your interest in being a visiting scholar in residence some time at one of our residencies? I think we already have our scholar in resident for the August 2018 residency but interested in the possibility for February 2019? I haven't yet run this by my program director and our faculty but I think they and our student body would be interested in your work. I know I am and so grateful for your work and My Grandmother's Hands. All goodness, Lori
