Sunday Squee: The Chromatic Life

The Sunday Squee is when I can talk about things that make me happy and excited. The main focus will be on different things people created, from books to movies to television shows to podcasts, and my effort will be to highlight less commonly known things as a way to share what I love. If you want to join in the Sunday Squee, please link back to me so I can enjoy what you love!

The Chromatic Life is a podcast about diversity in all of it's forms in the context of all forms of media - from television shows, to conventions, to the news. Hosted by Javier Payano, Tanya DePass, and Matt Lancaster, the podcast hit the ground running, covering such diverse topics as the recent Confederate Flag controversy, the video game Splatoon, the Pixel's Movie, Internet "Fame", a televised shooting in Virginia and the ramifications of the images being shown, and Janae Marie Kroc going public with being gender-fluid and the effect on her weight lifting career. At times moving, enraging, inspiring, and comforting - The Chromatic Life offers many opportunities for learning about all of the intersecting social justice movements and how they play out in a decidedly unjust world. Additionally, the hosts are simply fun - maintaining that difficult balance of loving problematic things and keeping a sense of humor about the world. With only six episodes under their belt, it's amazing how much they've already accomplished and I'm excited to see what will come of them in the future!
