    Episode Description:

    With the holiday season comes more awkward conversations with family, so we’re bringing you an encore episode of our first ever call-in show where you, dear listeners, share with us how you’re talking gender, race, politics, and more with your parents, aunties, in-laws, step-siblings, nephews, and more. And guess what: it’s really hard! And messy! And you’re not alone! We also got our homie Gene Demby of NPR’s Code Switch on the line to talk through the now-public email exchange between Margaret Cho and Tilda Swinton about whitewashed Hollywood roles. It’s a vintage beef that highlights the ever-relevant question: when will white folks stop making people of color do undue emotional labor?
