Bawdy Storytelling

The Bawdy Storytelling podcast is taking a break this week. 

We stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, so rather than talking, this week we choose to shut up, to listen, and to learn. #RIPGeorgeFloyd

Song: 'A Change Is Gonna Come'

If you’d like to do the same, friends at Inside Podcasting have compiled this list of anti-racism resources. I’ve shared them here with permission from Skye Pillsbury at the Inside Podcasting newsletter.

Dear Readers, 

We are taking a break from our regular programming today to bring you tangible ways to get informed/stay educated on issues of race, support the #BlackLivesMatter movement, and put an end to police brutality and racial injustice. We collected some of today's content from other sources including She PodcastsBello CollectiveAntiracism Resources for White People, and educator Camille Buchanan (thanks to all). This is not designed to be a comprehensive list; for a more extensive collection of resources please visit this Google page, or do some of your own digging. It doesn't take much.

In peace, love, solidarity, and action,


Subscribe and listen to these podcasts

Also, check out Bello Collective's 21 Podcasts That Confront Racism in America, a tweet from Helen Zaltzman, and this thread from Zach Kahn.

Have a recommendation for a POC-created podcast about [race / Blackness / POC / social justice] that we should all be listening to right now? Please hit reply and tell me about it.
