#016: "The Diversity Drinking Game" episode.
Hosts Raquel Cepeda, Tanner Colby, and Slate culture writer, Aisha Harris, explore why people of color are on TV screens but not in writers rooms, whether Shonda Rhimes is a special effect, and if on-campus coddling is actually a thing.
Our guest host for this episode was Aisha Harris, culture writer for Slate.com. She has contributed to the New York Times online, The Dissolve, and Jason Bailey’s book Pulp Fiction: The Complete Story of Quentin Tarantino's Masterpiece as a guest essayist. She’s appeared on NPR, the BBC, MSNBC, NBC, and CNN. She’s also had the delightful honor of being publicly ridiculed by Fox News.
