Katie is back for this episode and we discuss the Netflix show Dear White People, as well as ethical sneakers and ethical travel. Katie recommends Newton sneakers for the most ethical option if you’re buying new sneakers – according to Shop Ethical. Although since Katie bought these, she found an even better option – fair trade sneakers at Vegan Wares.

We also bring you some of the talks from the Community as Activism event that we discussed on episode 211, including Leah Avene on privilege, Beth Allan on challenging sexism in animal advocacy and Quinn Eades on imagining the future we want to create.
