Announcement: Going on Hiatus

This is not so much a new episode as a special announcement that Addicted to Race is going on hiatus for awhile. We’ve been “on the air” pretty much continuously for about two and a half years.

Don’t worry, this is not the end of the show! I definitely plan on coming back to it next year with some new ideas for the format, including some experimentations with video, but taking a hiatus will really help me get some other time-sensitive New Demographic projects off the ground. Then I can come back to the podcast with a clear mind and implement some new ideas.

Thanks everyone for all your support, and I look forward to rejoining you again soon!

ATR 87 – Race, TV, and Gossip – 11/05/2007 – Submit an Audio Comment: 917-720-6348

Carmen and Lauren Williams discuss the dichotomy in television representations of people of color, and how gossip blogs and magazines treat celebrities of color differently than white celebrities. This episode features the song “They Call Me Mr. Tibbs” by Cinematic, courtesy of Spectre Entertainment.

Lauren is the editor of Stereohyped, a black current events, gossip, and culture blog, the winner of a Black Weblog Award for Best New Blog. Her opinions on racial issues have been featured on NPR and in the Washington Post and Baltimore Sun. She has an unhealthy obsession with celebrity culture but can get her serious on when the situation warrants. Don’t get her started on any of the three Bs — Beyonce, Barack Obama, or blackface. She’ll never shut up.
