Talking Brains Episode 10: Racial Bias in Media & What You Can Do About It

Talking Brains Podcast: a conversation about racial bias in media with Torraine Walker.

This episode I’m joined by Torraine Walker to discuss racial bias in media – specifically the ways in which the media tends to portray white alleged offenders as “innocent” and people of color alleged offenders as “guilty”. (Thank you Torraine for describing our discussion so well!) We also talk about what you can do to combat this bias. Torraine Walker is a writer, journalist, and social media influencer with over 50 bylines in publications including Teen Vogue, Huffington Post, Splinter (formerly Fusion), and RaceBaitR. His website is www.torrainewalker.com, and his Twitter and Insta are @torrainewalker.
