Anti-Racist Book Recs: “Natives” by Akala

I have just finished reading Natives by Akala. I listened to it on Audible, where he read the book himself (always better when the author reads their own work if it's non-fiction, especially). I loved it! It was a lot to consume, hence why it took me a while, but he had a down-to-earth way… Continue reading Anti-Racist Book Recs: “Natives” by Akala

Free podcasts and videos that help with anti-racism (that I’ve listened to or watched)

To be honest, I feared it would be some wishy-washy nonsense. Oh, how I was wrong!

Why It Quit Social Media in January

At the start of this year, I challenged myself to go a month without social media. Because I host a blog and a podcast, I couldn't deactivate these accounts, really, and so my rule was that I couldn't use them for anything other than posting/sharing my content. And so, I deleted the apps from my… Continue reading Why It Quit Social Media in January
