Never ones to shy away from a difficult topic, this week the hosts enter into an important discussion on racism and dialogue used in conversations about race. The conversation opens up into an honest look at the history and realities of racism, and ways in which we are all complicit in systems of inequality. After exploring such complexities, Jeff, Mona and Allen shift into a lighter conversation about IreniHacks!, their favorite life-hacks.
