The Base of Bias

On this weeks episode of the Platinum Rule we wanted to start off with a segment that helps you all understand government and policy a little bit more. Have you ever heard of the revolving door? You will after this ep! We then get into the main topic: cultural anthropology with Callen Lappin. You all may be surprised about how anthropology ideologies still impact our daily lives. We explore how far we’ve come, or not come at all from filtering history from a lens of our own realities, conqueror's complex and what accessibility in anthropology means.  --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

Dear Earth, We Love You.

George Floyd Trail Statement: As minority women in America we recognize, experience, and acknowledge the discrimination against BIPOC in our nation. On 4/20/2021, the city of Minneapolis found D. Chauvin guilty on all counts in the murder of George Flyod. Although there is more justice to be served, we’re hoping the Floyd family and everyone who has been affected by this murder feels the slightest sense of relief. Happy Earth Day Platinum People! This week we wanted to make sure we spent this episode highlighting Earths biggest resource: WATER. I’m sure you’re asking yourself, “well what about water” & this week we break down just that. We first address California’s current drought emergency so you all are aware of its most important details. Then we are joined by a sip-certified wine connoisseur, water & farming expert, and dear friend. Thank you all for the support!--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
