KATU’s AM Northwest began in 1976, the year I graduated from college, married and began my adult life. Their interviews feature “personalities and hot topics of interest”—which included my “personality” and those hot and Big Topics at Midnight on May 17, 2013. Nothing like trying to cover huge topics in four minutes...
David Strohm interviewed me about Big Topics at Midnight: A Texas Girl Wakes Up to Race, Class, Gender and Herself on September 29, 2012, in Half Moon Bay, California. David is the creator of BOOMERANG!, an audio adventure of “Big Ideas for Curious Kids.” Big Topics and Big Ideas—a perfect fit for a conversation.
Excerpts from this interview have been made into YouTube videos. The one below explores my desire to both learn how to find acceptance "inside my own skin" and, simultaneously, how to step outside of myself and my experience to learn from others.
For those with time to listen, here is David's and my forty-minute conversation.
