Today's episode is a special treat for all you tech enthusiasts, Black Mirror binge-watchers, and fans of the Terminator franchise! I am delving deep into the realm of artificial intelligence, but with a twist – through the lens of feminist ethics. I sit down with the brilliant Dr. Kerry McInerney, a scholar and AI ethicist whose work sheds light on the intersection of feminism, race, and technology. She is currently a Research Associate at the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence and a research fellow at AI Now Institute. Her scholarly writing has appeared in multiple journals, and in 2021, she released her podcast The Good Robot, which she cohosts alongside fellow AI scholar Dr. Eleanor Drage. This podcast explores the more nuanced side of AI—not just the science behind it, but its social and ethical sides.

The use of 'Genocide' in discussions about Gaza has captured global attention, stirring a complex debate around its implications. In this episode, Ernesto Verdeja, a Professor of peace studies and global politics, joins me in dissecting the meaning and application of this term within the Israel-Palestine situation. We aim to understand the term, the criteria for its use, and the divergent viewpoints on its relevance to current events in Gaza. This conversation offers a thoughtful exploration of a highly charged topic, clarifying a term that carries significant weight in international discourse. This is a nuanced analysis with hopes that it enriches our understanding of the language used to describe one of the most enduring conflicts of our time.

As you know, I am always looking for great stories that we can create in-house and share in this space. And when I heard this story, I knew I had to share it with all of you! This episode from the Rightnowish podcast delves into many familiar themes of belonging, assimilation, loss, and finding our whole selves in this society. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Next week, I will be back with Immigrantly’s new episode.  This episode is part of the Rightnowish series Pen’s Pals. Journalist Pendarvis (Pen) Harshaw spent five weeks talking to people he knows from different areas of his life, who’ve all spent formative years in the Bay Area but now live outside the United States. In each episode, Pen talks to a guest about what caused them to move, how their perspective has changed, and what they’d say if they could write a letter to folks back home. This episode strays from that format because this guest was born outside the United States and immigrated here.

As we witness institutions like the University of Florida and major corporations like Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan scaling back their DEI efforts due to political pressures, are we allowing divisive rhetoric to overshadow the importance of creating inclusive environments where everyone feels valued? My guest today, Netta Jenkins, is a leader in the DEI space. She embodies the spirit of challenging norms and advocating for change. Raised by immigrant parents from Liberia and having grown up in Rhode Island, Netta talks about her childhood experiences that led her to choose a career in DEI. We discussed what will be lost if DEI programs are slashed, who the biggest recipients of DEI initiatives are, and how DEI can be improved.  Immigrantly is a weekly podcast that celebrates the extraordinariness of immigrant life.

Today, I am diving deep into the multifaceted world of beauty – an intensely personal and profoundly public topic. The beauty landscape has undergone a seismic shift from societal perceptions to self-reflection in the age of social media and video calls. In a world where self-scrutiny is constant, have we become more conscious of our own uniqueness? Are we conditioned to view ourselves through an augmented lens, even in reality? Today, we will unpack these questions and try to gain insights into the complex interplay of beauty, technology, and societal norms.   My guest, Dr. John Mesa, MD, answers some of these questions. He is a Colombian plastic surgeon who specializes in cosmetic plastic surgery for the face, neck, and breasts. He is known as the “king of buccal fat removal” within the plastic surgery community. Dr. Mesa also serves as a member of countless societies specializing in plastic surgery. He has taught at universities as a Clinical Instructor, authored many peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, and published his book, Atlas of Operative Craniofacial Surgery.

In today's episode, I am joined by Supinder Wraich, a trailblazing Canadian writer and actress. You might recognize her from her standout performance as "Aqsa" in the Peabody award-winning series "Sort of," which is currently in its gripping third and final season on HBO.

In January 2023, I sat down with Amy Choi and Rebecca Lehrer, the cohosts of The Mash-Up Americans podcast. Our conversation centered on their series on grief. We discussed grief, how we can understand it without over-pathologizing the sentiment, and why it’s both universal and personal. The most remarkable about the conversation is that we kept it light and honest.” Today, I am so psyched to share an episode from their podcast- their interview with Lisa Ling. The celebrated journalist, executive producer, TV host, author, and mother sits with Rebecca and Amy to share her journey to heal her familial bonds, compassion for her mom, and hard-won friendship with her religious Korean mother-in-law.

Harvard's first black president, Claudine Gay, resigned recently following several controversies over the past few months. But the real controversy, at least for this episode of Immigrantly, is the fact that regarding her resignation, conservatives (from billionaires to politicians) have been denouncing Gay as a "diversity hire."  If you're unfamiliar with the term, this is the perfect episode to listen to. Today, I'll be breaking down what "diversity hire" means, why it's harmful, and how it relates to a larger conversation around DEI or Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives.

Finding meaningful connections becomes crucial in a world where loneliness affects physical and mental well-being. Whether solidifying familial ties or seeking companions who offer stability, love, and tranquility, the pursuit is universal. However, reality often reminds us that finding the perfect companion is difficult. How does this quest transform when elements like AI and money come into play? Today, our guest explores this intersection, providing insights into the intricate connection between love, technology, and wealth. Cassindy Chao is a matchmaker located in the Bay Area, California. Her work with matchmaking started when she was a student at Wellesley College; now, after quitting a job in finance, she works full-time as a matchmaker, primarily focused on the Asian community.

Welcome back! Today's guest, Jane Wong, is a poet, a professor, and a restaurant kid - her new book, “Meet Me Tonight in Atlantic City,” covers growing up in a Chinese-American restaurant and reckoning with her ancestral past and present. In her book, you can expect passages as specific as ‘How to fall asleep so your mom picks you up” or earlier in that same chapter, “How to lock your brother in the meat freezer.” Her poetry, which she’s published in two books, has led her to create exhibits, one based on a poem entitled “After Preparing the Altar, the Ghosts Feast Feverishly,” which combines her past growing up in a restaurant with her ancestor’s struggles of surviving “the great leap forward” one of the most deadly famines in history   Immigrantly is a weekly podcast that celebrates the extraordinariness of immigrant life.

Inspired by the ongoing suffering in Palestine, this episode explores language's power and potential harm. Words aren’t harmless and are often dangerous. Slight differences in word choice alter people’s perceptions. Minor differences can turn humans into “animals.” There’s no guest today; instead, I investigate the subtle nuances in our words through the deeply rooted history of “dog-whistling.” I hope this episode will inspire us to think more critically about any media we encounter—from newspaper headlines and political rhetoric to advertisements and TV shows.  Because words are more complex than they seem. Trigger Warning: multiple moments in this episode contain sensitive material, including racism and brief mentions of sexual assault.

mass immigration - because colonizing and destroying the West is "wonderful". What would these freaks say if it was the other way around, with multimillons flooding their home nations? You would never hear the end of their "outrage".

Another show conflating immigrants with woke left wing politics, degeneracy, abortion, and the cult of intersectionality. Just move to Canada if you want to feel "multicultural" instead of wanting to integrate, you're making working class immigrant families look bad.
