Our unconscious “ism”s


A podcast listener, Susan Moe, wrote an insightful blog post about her reaction to some of the podcast episodes we did in the first half of 2020.

Here’s an excerpt:

Light is being shed on the dark underbelly of pervasive racism in our country and the immense pain and suffering it causes to millions of our fellow Americans. An “ism” is a belief system—racism, sexism, fascism, anti-Semitism, ableism, carnism. Before we can make systemic change to any “ism”, we need to wake up to our personal unconscious contributions.

This is a bit of a long story, but it will help empower those of us feeling unsure how we can help with the “ism” of race. I hope you will stick with me to the end for a special bonus!

Earlier this year, I was going about my day, innocently listening to one of my favorite podcasts, Speaking Your Brand, and the topic was, Why We’re #ChoosingWomensVoices—and You Should Too. The host, Carol Cox, challenged her listeners to seek out women’s voices during a 5- day period. When she explained the impetus for the challenge, my heart started to race.
