Episode 2: Justice Matters

In this episode, Jemma and Brandon have a conversation with Bénédicte Boisseron, Professor of Afroamerican and African Studies at University of Michigan, and author of Afro-Dog: Blackness and the Animal Question. Building off the Root Word “matter,” they discuss Bénédicte’s scholarship—situated at the intersection of animal studies and racial justice—and the implications for our present moment.
