Seeing White, an informative podcast on the the conception of racial whiteness. Just what is going on with white people? Police shootings of unarmed African Americans. Acts of domestic terrorism by white supremacists. The renewed embrace of raw, undisguised white-identity politics. Unending racial inequity in schools, housing, criminal justice, and hiring. Some of this feels new, but in truth it’s an old story.Why? Where did the notion of “whiteness” come from? What does it mean? What is whiteness for?
The UnMute Podcast is focused on providing informal and accessible conversations about social, political, and ethical issues from a fresh, fun, and philosophical perspective.

Our two host philosophers invite listeners to join them in conversations about variety of issues from popular culture to our most deeply held beliefs about science, morality and the human condition. Philosophy Talk challenges listeners to identify and question their assumptions, and to think about things in new ways.
