I had a fantastic time catching up with an old friend about my research. The episode, “Don’t Stay Out in the Sun: Understanding Filipinx Colorism,” was initially recorded as a lecture for Liberating Education. Dr. Robyn Rodriguez has known my family for most of her life. She and my cousin grew up together. When we both ended up at UC Santa Barbara, I got to know her better and have seen her through different parts of her life. Having lost loved ones, the pandemic has been difficult for both us. Catching up on this episode and later meeting up in Sacramento was healing for me. I hope you enjoy this episode (Note: This entry was backdated)
