Adobe And Teardrops Podcast

Jun 9, 2020

We’ve got a big chonker of an episode this time out. Here, Rachel talks about the Black Lives Matter movement and how it impacts country and roots music.

She forgot to mention it in the podcast, but she also made a playlist of anti-racist white musicians. Anti-racism means actively defining and fighting against all the insidious or “subconscious” forms racism takes -- and admitting that all white people have this ingrained in them. Here’s where you can read more about anti-racism. Here’s where you can listen to the Spotify playlist, which she’ll dig into on this coming Friday’s episode.
