#06 - The Race Dilemma Podcast - Summary Episode - The Story So Far...
We’d thought we’d just summarise briefly the last 5 episodes and bring to a close the family season of the race dilemma. Although closure is not something that is written in stone, we hope the story may continue... But for now, we will broaden the conversation out further afield to people outside the family who have shown an interest in sharing their stories.

#03 - Race Dilemma - Abel Sloane gives his take on growing up with a mixed heritage and shares some interesting insights about perceptions of people of colour in today’s society.
This episode is a conversation with Daniel's son Abel, and although only two years younger, his appearance is different to his sister Florence… he has an olive skin tone and brown curly hair and according to his sister, he has a more exotic look about him. This is the first time he’s ever expressed an interest in voicing his opinion on his mixed heritage. Seemingly was never really affected by any negativity his heritage may have encouraged, Abel gives good insight about perceptions of people of colour in today’s society.

#02 - Race Dilemma - Florence Sloane speaks about growing up looking white on the outside but feeling brown on the inside.
The catalyst for this podcast, Daniel's daughter Florence Sloane, tells her story of how being white on the outside left her feeling unqualified to contribute to conversations about racism, even though close members of her family had experienced it first hand. This presented a race dilemma for her... Growing up she thought she looked Asian only to find out that other Asian girls thought otherwise and it was the realisation that people generally thought she was white and made assumptions about how she might think. In this episode, Florence shares her experience of being perceived as white whilst still feeling very connected and proud of her Pakistani heritage.

#01 - Introduction - Drew and Daniel explore their first experiences of being made to feel racially different.
In the first episode, we give a brief insight into one or two of our experiences in which racism made a big impact on us - our first realisation that we were in fact of a mixed background and that people judged us on our skin colour, left us a little confused about where we fitted in, mainly due to the way in which we were perceived by others.
