Mixed Chicks Chat, Interview with Heidi Durrow and Fanshen Cox

I share this hour-long interview (which I did from the Costco parking lot!) with Louie Gong, President of Maven. I come in after first half-hour--and have a lot of fun with the chicks.

We talk Buddhism, coming to the end of identity, and much more--all while trucks and cars and huge shopping carts careen past. I love these chicks. We met when they invited me to give the inaugural opening keynote at their baby, the Mixed Roots Film and Literature Festival in Los Angeles. 

Listen.

Loved thier podcast at

http://heidiwdurrow.com/mixed-chicks-chat/

My name is C. I am an 18 year old black/white mixed chick. I found your podcast a few weeks ago and find it very insightful, thank you. I just finished the second bonus episode and at the end when the question of what advice would you give a young mixed chick came up I started crying. It fits me so perfectly. I was raised with my white family with very minimal black influence and I am from an ethnically diverse area in Southern California, however it is still very much white, and white influenced.

I am very light skinned, I fade during winter also, and I have always felt that pretty much the only black thing about me besides the minimal tint in my skin tone is my hair. (Sorry I kind of got off topic). Because I was raised with my mom's side of my family, the white side, I identify with white culture and I don't identify with black culture or feel I fit into it. I am at a crossroads and I guess I just try to avoid it because I know I see myself as identifying as white, but I also know that unfortunately because of my skin tone I will never really fit there, and be accepted there, but at the same time I know I do not fit into black culture.

I am only left with my culture which as of right now I do not know what it is, or where to put it so to speak. I just wanted to say thank you. Your podcast is amazing.

Really A great interview! The questions she asked are quite clear and relevant to the situation. The most important thing in interview is the subject knowledge. Many people like to give interviews and share their say, but others don’t like due to some fear, or shy etc.
