Episode 04 - The Barbershop Cinematic Universe: Diversity in the tech industry
On this episode of PST, we welcome our new co-host Hunty and discuss how some [tech] companies utilize social-justice-washing (or diversity-washing) in order to appear as more caring, when in reality they are just marketing tactics that target profitable demographics. These are not real solutions to systemic problems and historical inaccessibility to socio-economic resources, but are instead merely bandages to cancer.
Public Space Travel is a podcast dedicated to social/political critique, comedy, and education. Coming from an anti-hierarchy/oppression perspective, we aim for progressive/radical left solidarity with brothers/sisters/trans and non-binary folk of all stripes.
