In this week's episode, I talk to writers Joan DelFattore & Christina Campbell.Joan DelFattore writes about living a single life in a world geared towards couples. Following her own experience of discrimination against being single in relation to her own cancer treatment, Joan wrote a peer-reviewed article that was published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2019, showing that patients with cancer are more likely to receive surgery or radiotherapy if they're currently married than if they're divorced, separated, widowed, or never married. Her research and essays have also appeared in the Washington Post, PsychologyToday and many other publications. Joan also gave a TedX talk, Sick While Single: Don't Die of Discrimination.Previous guest, Christina, writes about invisible illness, singles' rights, and the inexorable onslaught of entropy. After earning her Master of Fine Arts in Creative Nonfiction from George Mason University, Christina co-founded the singles' advocacy blog, Onely. The site deconstructs cultural stereotypes about single hood, such as the myth that unmarried people die alone, eaten by their cats! Her writing on Onely has been featured in numerous publications, including The Atlantic.com; Boston Magazine; PsychologyToday.com; and the book Singlism: What It Is, Why It Matters, and How to Stop It by Bella DePaulo.Topics that Joan, Christina & I cover areJoan's Tedx talk, ‘Sick While Single? Don't Die of Discrimination', and what prompted her to do it;how her research unearthed the systematic under treatment of single people;Joan's 2019 article, Death by Stereotype, that was published in the New England Journal of Medicine;how many physicians can't get their heads around a set up that isn't family-based;Christina's thoughts around the cultural expectation that people will automatically receive all the support they need from a spouse;the hesitation she sometimes feels around asking friends for help as a single woman;how Christina's chronic tick-borne disease has often be misunderstood and even, at times, disbelieved;the discrimination Christina faces with regards her healthcare as a single woman;Joan's experience of single hood growing up in the sixties;how she went to see a psychologist due to her ‘abnormality' with regards not wanting to get married;Joan and Christina's thoughts and advice around going through illness as a single;Christina's Website:www.christinadc.com Contact Christina:www.onely.org Email Joan at:firstname.lastname@example.orgJoan's Website:joandelfattore.com Joan's Tedx Talk - Sick While Single?

Hello darlings, have you missed us? Kathleen is back from Mexico so Straight Up is back to business and we have an excellent celebrity interview for you today: Ryan Hennessy, frontman of Picture This, the childhood friends turned Irish mega band who flew to the top of the Irish charts with their debut album in 2017. If you go weak for an Irish accent and swoon over gorgeous introspective songs about love, breakups and existentialism then you are going to absolutely love em. We met Ryan one sunny afternoon in Kings Cross and chatted all about why they're the most 'egoless band out there', why young female fans should not be patronised, and why he might be the only artist that never drinks before a show. And his anecdote about a mental house party in LA - which also inspired a song - might well be one of the craziest stories Straight Up has heard to date. Plus: why he wasn't offended by controversial Irish film Banshees of Inisherin, the song inspired by his big existential crisis and his thoughts on masculinity and fatherhood. Leave us a little review, and rate us on Spotify, it helps boost us in the charts and then we can continue getting more fabulous guests and spending time curating juicy, informative content about all things celeb culture.

Welcome back to Blended! It's episode 31, I'm joined by a brand new panel of inspirational professionals and, today, we're talking about education and bias. It's a topic that's close to my heart, with my own educational and career journey. And, it's a topic that has increasingly come under the spotlight recently in light of the labor shortages and trending workplace changes we've seen industry-wide. So now is the perfect time to really explore what's going wrong, or right, with the way we think about education in the workplace. Today, our guests will be diving into education and sharing their own experiences; exploring the hiring practices that often continue to support bias; reflecting on what the next generation are doing and thinking about when it comes to education and their careers; and sharing their words of advice for how organizations can tackle education bias and create more diverse workplaces. IN THIS EPISODE WE DISCUSS: [00.44] Introductions to our Blended panellists. Rose – CEO and Principal Consultant at The Opening Door Jennifer – Executive Director at TMSA (Transportation Marketing and Sales Association) Stella – Professor at Towson University “Education bias is somebody being treated differently, or unfavorably, based on their educational background, where they went to school and what level of education they have.” Rose [02.32] The group give an overview of education bias, and what it means to them. “It was instilled in me from the second I was born: education, education, education… When I finished my degree, I felt that if I wanted to make more money, if I wanted to really excel in the corporate world, I had to have an MBA. And it took me a long time to think deeper about why I felt that way, and if I really needed it to be successful. ” Rose [05.09] The panel share their personal experiences, their level of education and how important it has been to their professional career. Sarah's experience of ‘only' gaining a high school diploma; then studying at night school, trying different things, and gaining certifications whilst working, in order to boost her professional career Different types of education, eg. degree vs industry certifications, high school vs. higher education Stella's experience of switching fields from her degree to her master's; how a previous employer allowed her flexibility to pursue a PhD; and why she ultimately changed career, from the pharmaceutical industry to academia Stella's experience of opportunity in America versus in India, and her parents encouragement of higher education Rose's experience of being raised with the importance of education, and finally coming to terms with the fact that it might not be as important as she was raised to believe The assumption that additional education equals money and success The cost of education Jennifer's experience of teaching at a community college, and as a parent of a child with ADHD Continued education in the workplace Responsibility “Companies say ‘we want to retain more employees, what can we do?' Well, help develop them! Develop them, make them want to stay with you. Sometimes simple questions have simple answers, we just have to take the time.” Jennifer [23.14] The group discuss education bias within industry, and the age-old debate of experience vs education. “To be on a tenure track, you typically have to have a PhD. And then once you get into your field, then it becomes rank – are you an assistant professor, associate professor or professor – so you still have a PhD, but rank becomes an issue.” Stella Stella's experience working in academia Differing ranks and salaries within the workplace, even with the same level of education Stereotypes and judgements about different types of PhD, eg ‘they're just liberal arts' Elitism Ego Affinity bias Importance of diversity “It's hard to acknowledge and recognize your ego… but if we build more self-awareness, we can start to realise when our ego is leading things in the wrong direction, and the more we address that, we would see less bias.” Rose [38.57] The panel reflect on what they're seeing in the market around education bias and hiring practices. Job descriptions Expectations The importance of not dismissing people if they don't have the ‘perfect' educational background Using technology to pre-filter applications Asking the right questions Role of HR – who is hiring/writing job descriptions? Input from the team who will work with new hires The pace of evolving technology – education getting out of date The structure of a resume How many years' experience equals a degree? What do you actually want out of your career? Self-taught knowledge Power of self-belief “I think we put too much emphasis on education and not experience, but there is a catch 22. Because the requirement for an entry level job is 5 years – that doesn't make sense!” Jennifer [54.13] The group put the spotlight on the next generation, and what they're thinking about when it comes to education and ongoing learning. Need for more authenticity in the workplace Young people building personal brands Exploration of self-employment and entrepreneurship Greater understanding of new technologies Giving people a chance Parents, educational institutions and communities working together [1.04.57] The panel sums up their thoughts from today's discussion.

"When you decide to do something, the universe conspires to help you."Most Latino parents coming to the States expect better living conditions and opportunities for themselves and their children. They believe it is the price they pay for leaving their beloved country, family, and friends behind. That belief puts much pressure on their kids, who must at least become lawyers, doctors, or engineers to make their parents' sacrifice worth it. But what happens when that child chooses a different path? In this episode, I'm delighted to be joined by the amazing Marlene Forte, the Cuban-American actress that changed how Hollywood sees and represent Hispanics in movies and TV. She played Ana de Armas' mom in Knives Out, Gail at The Way Back with Ben Affleck, Judge Medina on Netflix's The Lincoln Lawyer, and Carla Juarez on ABC's The Rookie, among many others like Real Women Have Curves, A Haunted House, and Star Trek Reboot. Tune in to Episode 128 of Amiga, Handle Your Shit, and hear about Marlene's upbringing and her "late" start in acting, her parent's desire and pressure for her to become a lawyer, and their support when she decided to pursue her dreams in Hollywood. We also talk about her presence as an actress and producer in the Hispanic community in Hollywood, the challenges she faced as a Latina single mom, and more.

Does every state have a volleyball stereotype? FOR SUREEEEE! We went through all 50 states in America and named every stereotype for each state. Since we stereotyped each state using the direct contact we have had with the players from there, some states were left out, due to the fact that we never had any contact with players from that particular place. We are from California and Hawaii and we all played club since we were 6 years old, before going to to play D1 at Hawaii and UCLA and now currently play pro in some of the top leagues in the world. For Joe and Gage, their father owns a volleyball club (Pacific Rim) so their experience and contact in the club world is vast. Did we get all the states correct? Did we miss any?

I talk about the novella entitled Seedfolks. In class today, we discussed stereotypes after reading a chapter in the book. This topic reminded me of my own experiences with teaching English in South Korea.
Now while US President Joe Biden's visit to Ireland has been largely positive in Ireland, there's been more mixed reaction across the water in the UK. A cartoon in The Times today depicts Joe Biden as a dancing leprechaun, holding a pint of Guinness. Some have claimed it harks back to the days of punch magazine. Graphic artist and illustrator, Cian Tormey joined Sean to discuss… Image: The Times
I got my brother Sharif El-Mekki, from the 8 Black Hands Podcast, on the @calvinnellumpodcast. This is full circle! I'm blessed! Let's talk about it! “Black men currently account for less than two percent of the U.S. public school teacher workforce, according to the National Center for Education Statistics' National Teacher and Principal Survey and Dr. Travis J. Bristol of the University of California, Berkeley. This trend has been attributed to the lack of mentorship or misalignment in certain educational environments.

In a patriarchal, misogynistic society, the stigmas and stereotypes that are weaponized against women create an insidious pattern of internalized oppression: those who are marginalized are gaslighted into thinking that they, themselves, are to blame.What does that cost women?We're joined by Sasha Cagen, an author, coach, and teacher whose life work subverts some of the more restrictive, diminishing cultural expectations placed upon women, womanhood, and expressions of femininity in our time. Once a Silicon Valley social media startup founder, Sasha has become a champion of feminist empowerment methodologies, especially for women over 40, who feel restricted or held back by social norms, cultural pressures, and expectations that are minimizing of a full and whole life experience.She espouses counter-cultural concepts and practices like “self-marriage” while coining witty and memorable catchphrases like “quirkyalone” and even “pussywalking,” which have rightfully garnered global attention over her career from outlets like CNN, the New York Times, BBC, Vogue, and beyond.Sasha is the author of the 2004 cult-favorite book, Quirkyalone: A Manifesto for Uncompromising Romantics, which espouses a philosophy of not settling in life, or in love.

This week: Jewish women rarely get a fair shake in pop culture, often showing up as flat stereotypes like the “Jewish American Princess” trope. But over the past decade, especially on TV, that's been changing. So I talk with Dr. Samantha Pickette, author of “Peak TV's Unapologetic Jewish Woman,” all about that.To help Ukraine: https://tcjewfolk.com/resources-to-help-ukraine/Say hello!

Metrosource Minis: The LGBTQ World & Beyond
It has been almost three years since we first sat down with What We Do in the Shadows' fan-favorite actor, singer, and voice-over artist Harvey Guillen. Challenging the norms of what made a star a star and what an action hero looked like, he became the media's darling as they were able to anchor headlines on Latinx, LGBTQ, and plus size descriptives. As each interview and new role would show, Harvey is much more than the labels assigned to him. Whereas most actors sit back and enjoy the success of being in a multiple Emmy-nominated TV show, Harvey's hustle has led to a number of notable TV appearances, action films, and voice-over projects. In the space of just a couple of years, Harvey has gone from being a fresh face in Hollywood to presenting at the Golden Globes alongside one of his co-stars, Salma Hayek, and dominating the red carpet at the Oscars. He is a verified quadruple threat – singer, actor, dancer… vampire slayer. This past season, the true picture of his success came into full view as passengers on the New York City subway were met not with one, but two, side to side, billboard ads for Harvey's work - Comedy Central's Cursed Friends and Dreamworks' Puss in Boots 2. Coming up, he becomes part of the DC Universe for Blue Beetle, the first feature superhero film with a Latinx flair! He will also be seen in the adult comedy, Strays, which also features Will Ferrell, Jamie Foxx, and Sofia Vergara. If that wasn't enough, he will also be taking part in the Kennedy Center's production of Spamalot with Michael Urie. What can't he do? With all of this success, he has remained humble and has become a veritable spokesperson for the LGBTQ and Latinx communities. I was miraculously able to snag some time with him in between his many projects and flights.In this catch-up episode, we talk about his upward trajectory, staying humble and connected to his roots, creating signature looks and promoting body positivity on the red carpet, overcoming Hollywood labels, not being pigeon-holed in roles, inclusion issues within the gay community, Guillermo's coming out on Shadows, making Latinx history in the DC Universe, booty pics, love and dating, and his biggest wish for the LGBTQ entertainment community….with host Alexander Rodriguez.Check out his issue of Metrosource in print or read the article on Metrosource.com

How did the "bad bitch" replace the "ride or die chick" in hip hop? In this episode of Louder Than A Riot we talk to the original baddest herself, Trina, about how her career flipped the script on dusty old stereotypes of Black women in rap, and left men down bad. We also sit down with Trick Daddy, the man that put her on, to hear how he feels to see her shining; and check in with Latto, a rapper carrying the torch that Trina set aflame 25 years ago.

Data from The Prison Policy Initiative shows a recent rise in the number of women and girls in confinement. "Fueled by more than five decades of a misguided and failing “war on drugs”, the US leads the world in the incarceration of women. Today, more than half of American states have legalized or decriminalized marijuana. Even as it might seem that the war on drugs is drawing to a close, its brutal policies continue to create havoc in the lives of American women," said The Takeaway host Dr. Melissa Harris-Perry, author of Sister Citizen: Shame, Stereotypes, and Black Women in America, and the Maya Angelou Presidential Chair of Politics and International Affairs at Wake Forest University. "The intersection of gender, poverty and incarceration is not race neutral," and women's pathways to confinement often exist at the intersection of mental illness, trauma, and gender-based violence. Black women make up about 29% of the women who are incarcerated in this country. Hispanic women make up about 14%. American Indian and Alaska Native make about up about 2.5%. These are dramatic overrepresentations of women of color in the criminal legal system in comparison to their make-up of the U.S. population. 80% of women in jail and 58% in prisons are parents. More than half of the 76,000 locked away from families, children, work and home are awaiting trial, much less a conviction. Harsh sentencing for low level drug offenses and the inability to afford bail are primary causes of women's prolonged incarceration. $10,000 dollars is a typical bail, but the Prison Policy Initiative found that the median annual income for women awaiting trial in jails was about $11,071 dollars. "The legal system is much more likely to be punitive towards people of color and poor people. I think that that's an important dimension to this as well, and poverty plays a critical role in this," said Mike Wessler, Communications Director for the Prison Policy Initiative. "Whenever I'm talking about this, I often think about a tweet sent by law enforcement in New York City during the pandemic where they proudly boasted a photo of a bunch of diapers and formula, and they rightfully got pretty significant backlash for that," he told The Takeaway. Law enforcements were pictured with haul of diapers, formula, and other products worth $1800, closing 23 warrants; Parents on social media horrified by kids' items. February 2022. Tweet was later deleted. (The Independent) For Mike, that defined a common factor of women's incarceration in the U.S.: women are often arrested and put in jail because they're trying to meet the daily needs of themselves and the people that they care for. "Women and girls are much more likely to be incarcerated for drug and property offenses. They're much less likely to be charged with more violent crimes, things like murder and manslaughter and kidnapping and the like. And I think there's a couple of explanations for this. Property and drug crimes are often crimes related to poverty and crimes related to addiction," Wessler told The Takeaway. "Ultimately, the enforcement of drug laws in this country as a criminal offense is a public policy choice. It could very easily be treated as a public health issue. We use things like treatment and counseling to help people who have substance use disorder get the care they need," said Mike Wessler. He added, "We saw poverty numbers drop during the pandemic and this is related to why we saw lower incarceration rates, particularly of women during the pandemic. Women had more resources at their disposal to meet those needs. They [mothers] were receiving assistance from the federal government for their children." Stay-at-home orders and a slowing down of the court system are also said to be factors. But as courts return to pre-pandemic operation, women and girls' incarceration rates have climbed at a pace faster than that of boys and men. Black women and girls are hit disproportionately, making up 29% of U.S. prisons while only making up about 13% of the U.S. population. The National Black Women's Justice Institute (NBWJI) researches, elevates, and educates the public on the overcriminalization of Black women and girls, and NBJWI is conducting research on Black women's policing, health, and incarceration. Sydney McKinney, Executive Director of NBWJI, joined the Takeaway to discuss the current data surrounding Black women and girls' incarceration and what healing-centered alternatives can look like.
