American comedian and television host
What does it take to prepare ourselves to do the work of anti-racism? At this time when there is an outcry against racism and oppression, many white Americans are confronting the hard truth that we benefit from the system that oppresses others. How do we face that truth, which involves a loss of who we thought we were, and find unique actions we can sustain to bring about change? Kate Schatz has been searching for answers to these questions for years and, when her friend W. Kamau Bell offered her up as a white person willing to help Conan O'Brien sort it out, she became a resource for many people asking the hard questions and searching for the true answers.

Someone very smart sent me an article just today that talks about the role of humor when we deal with stressful situations/anxiety-creating moments. And on that front: have any of you (and in this moment, I think we're specifically talking to White people) ever felt weighed down by how heavy anti-racism work can be? You maybe noticed that sometimes we're pretty serious on this show… Though I'm a serious, overthinking person sometimes, in real life I'm goofy and I actually make fun of myself quite a lot, texting photos of myself in awful workout outfits to you, you have the driest sense of humor of all the people I know except for your husband like we're not that dry. So what do you all think about listening to about 15 minutes of one of the funniest activist-comedians out there today - hearing how HE, a funny guy, might explain what might be great for White women to do in this work, how to process how tired we all are, and what crocheting has to do with it. What to listen for: Why understanding the history of the United States is important to understanding where we are today What Kamau Bell would tell White women on the whole - including how if we had the same energy for anti-racism that we had for coordinating our kids' summer camps, we would be there by the end of the summer, maybe? There's no issue of oppression in this country that hurts White people that doesn't connect back to really really hurting the Black, Brown, Indigenous, Asian, and Latinx populations W.

Today's Episode: From Female Feminist to Playboy to Modern Day Magic Living with Carrie Pitzulo Carrie is a professional tarot reader and the founder of Ancient Magic, Modern Living, a program of energetic, intuitive, and spiritual empowerment for women. She has a Ph.D. in American women's history, and is the author of Bachelors and Bunnies: The Sexual History of Playboy. Carrie has a forthcoming book exploring mystical lessons on life, death, and grief in a dying world. Carrie can be seen on CNN personality and comedian W. Kamau Bell's new Showtime documentary, "We Need to Talk About Cosby," and the new A&E documentary, "The Secrets of Playboy."In 2011, Carrie published her ground-breaking book on the history of Playboy magazine, Bachelors and Bunnies. Although she is a lifelong feminist, she discovered that in its heyday, Playboy was much more pro-woman than anyone had given it credit for (she was as surprised as anyone else!). Her book had a great impact on the ways in which we understand this important cultural institution of the late 20th century and she received international media attention - which continues!

Tonight's special guest is Victoria Valentino from Altadena, California, an author, a sexual assault awareness activist, and one of the many survivors of the sexual abuse and trauma caused by Bill Cosby. "No one wants to get famous for being sexually assaulted," she says. "But sometimes, it's not about you. Sometimes, it's about finally telling the truth." Victoria became the sixteenth woman to come forward and one of the five women interviewed in a Washington Post piece published on November 22, 2014. A year later, New York Magazine published their blockbuster issue that blew the lid off the Cosby story, 'Cosby: The Women - An Unwelcome Sisterhood'. The magazine cover has become iconic, depicting 35 of the survivors who were willing to tell their own stories. Since then, Victoria has been in demand not only to retell her shocking story of violent rape by one of America's most powerful celebrities but to also offer her viewpoint on his motives and modus operandi. Now, she is featured in Showtime's compelling new four-part series, 'We Need to Talk About Cosby' by W. Kamau Bell in which he expertly chronicles the performer's meteoric rise to the top along with his criminal timeline. Victoria's memoir, 'Dirty Diamonds: The Repurposed Life of a Playboy Icon and Cosby Survivor' will be out soon. It is not a story that is solely a retelling of the Cosby experience. Her life story as a survivor of childhood abuse, domestic abuse, multiple rapes as a young girl, made her the easy target for the man who would make her Playboy's Miss September 1963.

That's just one thing he has in common with Denzel Washington's Eli from the underloved 2010 “post-apocalyptic neo-Western” The Book of Eli.More about Do the Work!***With Jordan Crucchiola and W.

Kamau Bell is an accomplished stand-up comedian, 5 time Emmy Award winning host, director, and author, but because he is authentic, hilarious, and full of heart. Every time we sit down with him it feels like we've just had the most constructive and fun therapy session, and it just keeps getting better.

Episode 125 - Racial Bias in Appraisals with Guest Marcus Fillyaw Talking about a difficult topic is always tough. Racism and appraisal is certainly one of those topics. While it is tough to dicuss, and open, honest dialogue must take place if there is to be any solutions or understanding. In this episode, Brian invites Marcus Fillyaw to discuss racial bias and the appraisal industry. The start made both a little nervous, but in the end, they realized the differences really aren't that different. It is about understanding all around and not being afraid to have the talk. SHOW NOTES 04:10 – Welcome to Marcus Fillyaw. 08:30 – What is an appraisal to a real estate agent? 09:45 – How does an agent handle a CMA? What pushback do you get from homeowners? 15:00 – What do the terms racist, racism, and biased mean? 19:50 – News and media sources suck and put their agenda and slant to sell their business. 21:00 – What are your proclivities and thoughts about different classes of individuals? 25:45 – Comment about Kamau Bell. 32:30 – In high profile cases of race and appraisal, where is the truth? Is there something else that affected the values? 42:30 – An appraisal is an opinion of value and there is almost always a range of value between practitioners. 47:35 – Appraisers don't look for black communities to make comparisons. 54:35 – What is driving the increases in claims of racism in appraisal? 59:40 – People are more exposed to the stories so they might think the problems are happening to them. 1:01:35 – Appraisers commonly make people mad because we don't get the value number the owner wants. However, it is not based upon race. 1:03:10 – Appraisers report the market. They do not make the market. There is not a systemic issue in the appraisal industry. 1:05:40 – The bigger issue is more about the incompetence of one of the appraisers in the value disparities. 1:09:10 – Education is one way to change the narrative and help everyone understand what is happening. 1:10:35 – Agents can help educate the public by teaching and helping their clients understand the process. 1:16:45 – Challenge yourself to seek out the entirety of any story. Don't just read the headlines or listen to one news source. 1:18:50 – Last words of wisdom from Marcus.

NPR Student Podcast Challenge 2022 Honorable Mention. The Dragon Kids had the privilege of being interviewed by W. Kamau Bell for his show "United Shades of America" on CNN. This is what happened behind the scenes when a comedian and political provocateur interviewed a group of 5th grade podcasters in a public school on a Sunday during a pandemic and a snow storm. The Dragon Kids turned the tables on one of the producers and interviewed her about her cool job - one the Dragon Kids will be vying for in about 15 years!
In this episode, Kimberlé is joined by W. Kamau Bell, director of the four-part documentary series We Need to Talk About Cosby. Together, the two use an intersectional lens to explore Bill Cosby's descent from his seemingly immovable status as "America's Dad.” Unpacking the complex interactions of race and gender that enabled Cosby's alleged sexual violence, this conversation brings a new dimension to the exploration of the mogul's tarnished legacy and the subsequent range of responses from the Black community and beyond. From respectability politics to the emotional reconciliation needed for processing allegations made against our once-heroes, this episode covers it all and reminds audiences that the denial of and ignorance around gendered abuse come from silence and our nation's great, persisting short-term memory. With: W. KAMAU BELL - Director and Executive Producer, We Need to Talk About Cosby; Host and Executive Producer, United Shades of America, CNN Hosted by Kimberlé Crenshaw (@sandylocks) Produced by Julia Sharpe-Levine and Ashley Julien Edited by Julia Sharpe-Levine Supported provided by Destiny Spruill, Rebecca Scheckman, and the African American Policy Forum Music by Blue Dot Sessions Follow us at @intersectionalitymatters, @IMKC_podcast

On this week's episode of 2 Bears, 1 Cave, Tom Segura and Bert Kreischer discuss Bert's experience watching Tyler Perry's "A Madea Homecoming," Britney Spears' insane Instagram posts, W. Kamau Bell's new docuseries "We Need to Talk About Cosby," and David Spade's episode of 2 Bears. Bert tells the story of going to a strip club in Austin with his crew the night before, and Tom and Bert talk about "Yo! MTV Raps."

Comedian and documentary host W. Kamau Bell has built a career out of having difficult conversations. Today, he returns to the show with his latest project, the four-part docuseries We Need to Talk About Cosby. We begin with Kamau's reluctance to talk about Bill Cosby (7:35), whose legacy became something he decided to publicly grapple with (8:30) and examine chronologically through this piece (10:17). Kamau speaks on his approach to the series (13:10), the integral women who helped create it (14:40), and a formative United Shades of America moment that transformed the way he encounters and tells painful stories (16:24). On the back half, we unpack Cosby's impact on Black history and representation (24:00), how he changed the stunt industry (27:53), a philosophy on truth that became embedded in the documentary (34:38), and how the project permanently altered Kamau's course (35:04).
