H*33: Ableism & The “Ice Bucket Challenge”

For H*33, Kari is back! We start off with some quick news—the Queen’s birthday, Michael Sam being cut from the St. Louis Rams, and the ceasefire from Gaza—before moving into the main topic of ableism. What are some ways in which ableism is commonly perpetuated in our society? When it intersects with race and class and gender? For this week’s asks and submissions from listeners, we read uneclochette’s submission about codeswitching, an anonymous ask about our recording style, and nicejewishqueer’s submission regarding anti-Semitism in anti-Zionist movements.

Sorry!

Hey y’all lovelies—

Sorry (yet again), but there won’t be an episode this week. Between me just moving to Australia and running around like a headless chicken, and Chuks getting slammed at work, we haven’t been able to coordinate our schedules. Promise we will deliver as soon as we figure out this fourteen-hour time difference!

xoxo Kari

H* 32: Code Switching & Talking to White People (ft. Lucy)

What is code switching and what’s it like navigating white spaces in America as a black man and Asian American woman from very different backgrounds? What are the types of bodies which have more or less ability to move through white spaces and how do we codeswitch without constantly centering whiteness and an implicit desire to comfort white people? Chuks along with special return guest Lucy (ragstoreverie) - Kari is out for the week- address these questions and more on this week’s episode of Hyphenated on “Code Switching & Talking to White People”

buhhhhhhh it’s me and my monotone voice again, this time with a throat infection (can’t wait til my health insurance kicks in, yayyy ‘murrica). yaaaah not pretty. but thanks so much to everyone who listened! it was fun “co-hosting” and I had a great convo with Chuks :))

one thing we were talking about after recording the podcast that I wish I said DURING the recording (i forgot to include it in my notes ugh) is that most of the AsianAm orgs we hear about - and many large social justice advocacy non-profits in general - are NOT grassroots orgs. They have missions to fulfill so they’re not likely to support groups and causes that don’t directly fall in with their organizational missions. Lack of capacity at these orgs is a really bad excuse for not showing solidarity, especially with grassroots Palestinian activists putting out a letter of solidarity with Ferguson. THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO HAD TO WORRY ABOUT DAILY BOMBINGS AND MISSILE STRIKES THIS PAST SUMMER. Meanwhile over here, non-profit folks are concerned about capacity and organizational focus~

Really, they couldn’t even put out a two-sentence statement of support? Not even a tweet?!?!?!?

^ great point with regard to the silence of many Asian American orgs on Ferguson & Mike Brown

H* #31: The Problematics of the Occupy Movement & Moving the Class Discussion Forward (feat. Ryan)

Kari and Chuks met for the first time in person this past weekend, so we kick off the episode introducing our guest this week, Ryan, and ragging on each other. In the news this week: Rihanna’s appropriative spread for W magazine, Miley Cyrus’s photoshopping herself over Nicki Minaj, the bombing of Iraq, and Michael Brown. Ryan joins us this week for our main topic of how to move the conversation on class forward. So often the conversation and movements surrounding class are dominated by white men. How do we work to move them forward so that a larger movement inclusive of all those who need it happens? For listener asks, we answer an anonymous ask about our future programming; bitches-dont-know-why-i-just’s asks about responding to friends who don’t want to come to consciousness; Joyced’s ask about the neo-imperialism that is teach English at international schools.
