RANT
The “ohmygodyou’rejewishnoway!” reactions Jen receives each year around the Jewish holidays are the subject of her rant today.

INTERVIEW: RACISM IN THE ADVERTISING INDUSTRY
Carmen interviews Matthew Creamer, a reporter for the industry publication Advertising Age, about the New York City Human Rights Commission’s investigation into the advertising industry’s hiring practices. The staffs at ad agencies are so lacking in diversity that the entire industry is under investigation. For more about this story, check out HighJive’s post on Racialicious.

RSS FEED SHOULD BE BACK UP!
I ended up uninstalling and reinstalling WordPress altogether, and as far as I can tell, our RSS feed is working again now. However, I need to re-upload all the MP3 files of our old episodes, so you might encounter some dead links this week. Also, give me a couple days to get our logo back up, and all the little things in the sidebar.

  1. Hi there,

    I really laughed when I heard Jen’s rant about her co-workers reactions to finding out she is Jewish. Funnily enough, I get a very similar (although not so eyes-wide-open extreme, perhaps) reaction when people find out I’m Jewish. Although I’m white, my dad is from Scotland and I’ve definitely inherited his celtic looks (red hair, freckles), and somehow people find it really weird that I’m Jewish.

    I remember a particular incident from secondary school (high school I guess), when we were studying the Arab-Israeli conflict in history class. Our teacher was convinced that my non-Jewish friend was Jewish (and spent a good 10 minutes talking to him at cross purposes about it) and expressed total bemusement about me.

    Anyway, I’m really enjoying your podcasts, keep up the good work!

    Jess
