We’ve hit the 50 show mark! Woo hoo!
And since we’ve made it to that point, we’re taking a quick break this week — no new show. However, we’re re-packaging an old show. Well, two, actually. We’ve taken segments from two of our earlier shows (from all the way back in 2011) and repackaged them. Why? Because it’s a great way to hear us talk about topics which fascinated us back then (and still do now.)
Our first segment is from April 2011 — we talked about “Whitewashing Hollywood,” which is what happens when a white actor plays the part of an ethnic character. It’s one of the best kinds of segments — which are the ones where Faiqa and Shiny vehemently disagree.
And then we move to the end of last summer — when we had a story about a woman who was in the middle of a controversy when she was denied access to an amusement park ride because she was wearing a hijab. We talked about our own outward religious/cultural identities — as well as our own theme park experiences.
Even if you’ve heard these before — listen again! Nostalgia is cool. 🙂
And after you’ve finished with this episode? Listen to our last episode featuring Rachel Reynolds again. It’s one of the best we’ve done.
