Let It Be 65: Privilege

Let It Be Privilege

Privilege is a topic Brooke and I mention a lot in passing on this show, but always in the context of checking our own.

A recent discussion in the Let It Be group allowed me to crystallise my own thoughts around the topic of privilege, however. And it also highlighted for me that many people think privilege simply equates to being rich when, in reality, this is just one of many forms privilege takes.

In this episode Brooke and I talk about different kinds of privilege, why we get defensive about our privilege, and the things that have helped us recognise our own.
