Episode 129 - Identity and Difference: An Imperfect Conversation on Religion, Race, and Sexuality

In Episode 129, Keith and Justin venture into dangerous territory as we dive into the topic of identity formation and difference (specifically religious, racial, and sexual difference). How do we construct our identities? Can we ever truly identify with someone who looks or believes differently from us? Is there such a thing as approaching people on a "level playing field" when it comes to these differences? What events in our lives have led us to identify the way we do? How do we recognize our own privilege while still engaging in these ongoing conversations? Do we, as "cisgendered, middle class, white males," have the right to speak with authority about these topics? Should we even talk about them at all? Listen to find out what we think! In the beginning, the guys talk about why most podcasts fail, why we haven't quit yet, and how we have found freedom finding our specific niche in podcasting. Finally, the guys wrap up the show by discussing the growing number of listeners and subscribers to the podcast, and what it might mean for our near-future. As always, be sure to comment, rate, and subscribe to the podcast! Let us know what you think!
