Some "Classified" Podcasts

Have a road trip coming up? Here are some podcasts I did for my book Classified.


As regular readers know, my book Classified: The Untold Story of Racial Classifications in America, was published in July. This is my first book since 2015, and the biggest difference in terms of publicizing this book has been the explosion of podcasts and webinars in the interim.

Some VC readers may have road trips or long plane rides coming up, and would be interested in listening to a podcast about it. I've done a lot of podcasts–just looking at the list below makes me tired–and I can't say I really have a favorite. So I'm just going to list the ones I have links to below, and let interested readers decide whether they expect to find one or another host especially interesting.
