The Woke Spectrum?

The spectrum of Allies: Supremacist, Voyeurism, Privilege, Benefit, Confessional, Critical, Traitor, Abolitionist

On this episode we explore the idea of a woke spectrum. You longtime listeners probably knew we would end up here eventually. After all, it is our new tagline. We go through responses we’ve collected about the word woke and we spend time with regular people -- many of them white -- trying to figure out, in light of everything going on, where they fit on this spectrum. And as it turns out, our spectrum kind of, sort of has some theoretical underpinnings when it comes to racial identity. You’ll just have to listen to find out what we mean.
