Getting Vaxxed

The one in which we discuss the COVID Vaccine rollout and some highlighted racial inequities that we’ve seen. 

Trouble with Taxes

With the impending tax deadline, taxes were on our minds. So, we decided to look into the systems of taxation and begin to explore racism within. We knew we’d find racism there; and we did. 

A Female VP

In this Shrinks After Hours episode, we chat about how we feel about having a woman in high office. Whether this would happen in our lifetime was questionable at many points, yet… here we are with a woman Vice President of the U.S. 

Marital Property

The one in which we explore the sexist, racist, patriarchal beginnings of the institution of marriage and how it has changed over the years; or has it? 

Monuments to Power

The one in which we explore two of the most popular, and controversial, monuments in the U.S: Mount Rushmore in South Dakota and Stone Mountain in Stone Mountain Park, Georgia. 

The Black Panthers

The one in which we talk about the Black Panther Party (originally the Black Panther Party for Self Defense). We wade through all of the stereotypes to try to truly understand this critical Black Power movement. 

Insurrections

The one in which we talk about insurrections – what they are and how they come and go. We attempt to understand the events of January 6, 2021 at the US Capitol building and what brought us to this place in history. 

Blinders

The one in which we talk After Hours about how our whiteness and our privilege makes us blind to much that goes on around us – what we are learning about it, and what we are doing about it. 

Turns out that despite the old cliche, what we don’t know (or can’t see) really can hurt us (and others). 

Love and Meaning after 50

The one in which we discuss the recently released book that Julie and her husband, Barry Jacobs, PsyD wrote for the AARP entitled Love and Meaning after 50: The Ten Challenges to Great Relationships and How to Overcome Them. 

This was a fun and informative discussion including the authors’ relationship advice based on years of clinical work, personal experience and research. Check for the book wherever you usually buy great books! You can also find out more on their book site and buy the book there.

Radical Death Studies

The one in which we speak with Tamara T. Waraschinski, PhD, about Radical Death Studies. Dr. Waraschinski is Director of Communications for the Collective for Radical Death Studies and helped us round out our understanding of the racism and imperialism inherent in death practice and the need for sweeping changes.
