What’s code switching? If you’ve ever found yourself changing who you are as a person in a given situation in order to gain acceptance, you’ve code switched. That need to shift how you show up in the world in order to adhere to a standard set by others is unfortunately a reality we live with and something our last guest, Imran Rehman, so poignantly brought up in episode 8.
In today’s episode we’re taking a deeper dive into this topic from our interview with Imran and breaking down what it means to code switch, why we’ve all been trained to do this (regardless of color), and the ways in which it actually dehumanizes us.
