Welcome to our first Podcast Potluck, an occasional blog series featuring a collection of podcast episodes that together make a nice meal for the mind. BYOE (bring your own ears).
Here are a few episodes with food for thought about race and religion. Is race a social construct? What does that even mean? What is it like for people of different racial backgrounds to talk about race? How do racial factors impact religious life?
- MIPodcast #48—(Almost) all about African American religious history, with Julius H. Bailey (June 2016)
- NPR’s Code Switch podcast, “Can We Talk About Whiteness?” (May 2016)
- MIPodcast #22–23—Race and Mormonism in the 19th century, with Paul Reeve and Ardis Parshall (March 2015)
