D+A #2: What Makes a Protest Successful and How do I get involved?

Today’s D+A minisode follows last week’s powerful conversation with Jara Connell on protests and people-powered forms of resistance. In this minisode Jara offers us a nugget of wisdom to be cautious about thinking all protests are the same or that we can even evaluate them with the same criteria.

TAL D+A Minisodes are short, actionable steps you can take in your everyday life to become more socially savvy, culturally competent and holistic in your actions. If you have any suggestions for D+A minisodes or longer Conversations, drop us a line! We’re always looking for new ideas.


D+A Minisode 1: How to Deal with Change w/ Dr. Andi Simon

Minisodes are finally here! If this is your first TAL Podcast experience, welcome! We recommend you start off with our regular Conversation series – 25ish minute dialogues about everything and anything human – one topic at a time.

Design + Application (DnA, get it??) Minisodes are bite-sized actionable insights and social building blocks to help you become more socially savvy, culturally competent, and holistic in thinking and action. With D+A we move from anthropological thinking to anthropological doing. These are 5-10 minute nuggets from our guests on Conversations or inspiring tidbits we come across that you can use in your daily lives. We release these weekly on Monday mornings to give you a boost for the week.

To kick things off, Dr. Andi Simon discusses with the TAL team how to deal with change. Our brains may not like change, but it is perhaps the one constant we have in life. Dr. Simon teaches us a few hacks to get your mind in the right state to deal with change. If you like minisodes and want to hear more, let us know! Tweet us or shoot us a review on iTunes!
