012: Hannah Rankine hosts a special episode discussing fear, purpose, self-esteem and spirituality
Last week was such an epic conversation that I want to give it a moment to shine. It was a long episode and appreciate it may take two sittings to get through. That being said I decided to do a shorter episode this week so you've got 40 minutes of me! I used a Claude Monet quote and a daily meditation reading to spark off my monologue. The result is a personal discussion on fear versus love, the power of service, purpose, self-esteem and ego and spirituality.  I find it peculiarly easy to be honest and vulnerable when sitting solo with a microphone. This is in thanks to the stupendously kind support I've received from y'all. I'm so grateful!!

011: Daniel Edmund speaks on Edward Colston, the BLM movement and toxic masculinity
011: Daniel Edmund who opened the speeches at Bristol's Black Lives Matter protest that has since received global coverage thanks to the removal of the Edward Colston statue joined me on this week's episode. Daniel was well set to talk to the crowd that day given his public speaking work on topics such as race and gender. His perspective on the intersection of race and gender is insightful and necessary. The social-enterprise he co-founded has progressed his nuanced understanding of masculinity, the confines that society puts onto men and how that negatively effects people in day-to-day life. Daniel is extremely honest and vulnerable as he talks of his own journey with teenage grief due to not feeling accepted. We also discussed the process of listening to your intuition and stepping into your light with the gifts we each have. Daniel explained the direction he felt that eventuated in him being the opening speaker at the now iconic Bristol Black Lives Matter protest. It certainly got me revved up and ready to follow my gut! ALSO!! DANIEL HAS HIS OWN PODCAST OUT NOW ON SPOTIFY! It's called 'Race & Gender Unfiltered by Daniel Edmund'.

010: Amber Sisson talks period poverty and co-founding a charity
010: Amber Sisson talks period poverty and co-founding a charity. We discussed gender equality in corporate environments as well as the intersection of spirituality and activism as they present themselves in Amber's life. I appreciated discussing the role social media does and doesn't have with the black lives matter movement and how we can focus on the positive energy that fuels us forward. It's a long episode because we journey through so many facets of what it means to be an evolving woman. I was almost set to keep the conversation to one hour but then we hit another sweet spot at the fifty minute mark and off we went down the path of exploration on that subject.  Amber has been a huge source of inspiration for me and someone I continuously bounce off. She balances integrity, authority, audacity and tolerance.  References: The video Amber spoke of in regards to women getting hysterectomies to be able to work uninterrupted: https://youtu.be/kTIp4TCqIQw Instagram: @hanjanran & @ambersiss & @theroughperiod Facebook: thehanjanranshow  Twitter: @hanjanran  #thehanjanranshow It'd be awesome if you'd do three free things for me...

009: Dear White People (Part 2), we need to talk about our role in Anti-Racism
We are following on from Part 1, which came out last week, continuing to discuss the layers of systemic racism, fetishisation and tokenism, desegregation, abolishing the police and so much more that is difficult to summarise. Myself and fellow anti-racism activist, Sarah Baker, invite other white people to join us in dismantling our own deep rooted racist views, to unlearn and to do better in a bid to make positive change. In this episode we both share anecdotes of previously ruining family dinners and how we strategise now to approach these conversations with compassion. Learn with us as we try to figure out how to keep discussing these issues amongst other white people and have them join us on the journey. As always, we are rigorously honest and absolutely imperfect and still learning! We spent time really talking about some solution based tools and actions. We ultimately want oppression of Black people to be eradicated, but we can't wish for this to happen from our position of privilege and not do anything about it through action. The purpose of this episode is to call you IN not call you out. We are breaking it down so that together we can understand a little better and do a lot more. It is extremely important that we clarify we are not speaking on behalf of Black people, and we are in no way saying that we are authorities on racism. We are speaking as white people who have made our own mistakes in the past and are personally striving to do better and invite you to join us. So... this episode here's some of what we cover: representation and visibility fetishisation of black men, sexual racism and the dangerous consequences of these attitudes defunding the police cultural appropriation we discuss how to navigate conversations with Black friends and white family we provide some evidence of what overt and systemic racism looks like here in the UK, in the workplace and in dating References: Protests: https://qz.com/901411/political-protests-are-effective-but-not-for-the-reason-you-think/ Tokenism https://business.vanderbilt.edu/news/2018/02/26/tokenism-in-the-workplace/ Fetishisation https://metro.co.uk/2019/01/08/black-women-constantly-hypersexualised-time-stop-fetishising-skin-colour-8310363/?ito=cbshare https://collegian.com/2019/04/category-opinion-mcwilliams-fetishizing-people-of-color-isnt-a-compliment-so-dont-act-like-it-is/ Cultural Appropriation https://www.theweek.co.uk/cultural-appropriation Generational Trauma https://www.thisamericanlife.org/627/suitable-for-children/act-two Colourblind https://www.forbes.com/sites/janicegassam/2019/02/15/why-the-i-dont-see-color-mantra-is-hurting-diversity-and-inclusion-efforts/ Blackface https://www.vox.com/2014/10/29/7089591/why-is-blackface-offensive-halloween-costume

008: Dear White People, we need to talk about our part in Racism
This week is a little different. It is not an interview but a conversation and an invitation. Myself and fellow anti-racism activist, Sarah Baker, invite other white people to join us in dismantling our own deep rooted racist views, to unlearn and to do better in a bid to make positive change. We ultimately want oppression of Black people to be eradicated, but we can't wish for this to happen from our position of privilege and not do anything about it through action.  The purpose of this episode is to call you IN not call you out. We are breaking it down so that together we can understand a little better and do a lot more.  It is extremely important that we clarify we are not speaking on behalf of Black people, and we are in no way saying that we are authorities on racism. We are speaking as white people who have made our own mistakes in the past and are personally striving to do better and invite you to join us. So... this episode here's some of what we cover: the difference between not being racist and being anti-racist we admit our past mistakes where we were unintentionally racist, we talk about what we learnt in the moment and what we've unlearned since we define some of the vernacular used in the anti-racism conversations such as white privilege, white saviour complex and white fragility we discuss some common misconceptions that are mistakenly viewed as accusations on an individual rather than understood as part of a wider system of oppression we provide some evidence of what overt and systemic racism looks like here in the UK References: White Saviour Complex and Volunteering: youtube.com/watch?v=haFdtgUr52s White Fragility: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/feb/16/white-fragility-racism-interview-robin-diangelo Why I'm no longer talking to white people about race by Reni Eddo-Lodge The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander 'Thirteenth' by Ava DuVernay available on Netflix Are Prisons Obsolete by Angela Davis  A Colony in a Nation by Chris Hayes  Pushout by Monique Morris  Come find us!

007: Paige Aubort carved out space for women in a male dominated industry to empower and educate
Dear friends, welcome to the show, Paige, who is the gift that keeps on giving. This is an insightful conversation that by the end had us both contemplating a lot within our own lives. Paige Aubort is somewhat of a sensation in the Australian hospitality industry. Not only has she overcome personal battles to achieve the accolades and success Paige has enjoyed but she turned her anxiety into fuel for her creative vision. This eventuated in her founding a non-for-profit organisation called Coleman's Academy that empowers and educates women in her industry, addressing issues from misogyny to mental health and career progression to creative inspiration. Resources mentioned: 'The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles' Book by Steven Pressfield I will post the painting I talk about on instagram! The affirmation Paige references: I reserve the right to suck sometimes. You reserve the right to make accidentals and well intentioned mistakes. I reserve the right to make bad art. I reserve the right to do your best even if someone else is already doing it better because love does not depend on achievement or success. I am worthy of affection even if I fail and especially when I fail So go. Go let yourself make a beautiful mistake right now God speed Instagram: @hanjanran & @paigeaubort & @colemansacademy Facebook: thehanjanranshow & Coleman'sAcademy Twitter: @hanjanran  #thehanjanranshow The 3 regular favours: 1.

004: Ciaran Thapar, youth worker and writer, explains the difference between knowing and feeling injustice and inequality
Episode 4 is choc-a-block full of thoughtful observations and poignant insights thanks to this week's guest Ciaran Thapar. Ciaran is a youth worker and writer and advocates in both capacities for young men in London in terms of social justice. We discussed everything from his experience mentoring, toxic masculinity, knife crime, drill music, privilege and lack there of and how we can all connect if we're willing to feel.  I also spent a moment to reflect on my own white privilege and invite you to join me on that inward contemplation to then take outward action. I pose a few questions for us white people to consider so we can strive to clean up this mess for our black friends and friends of colour.  Some resources below, but as always you're so welcome to reach out. I've had some wonderful conversations of late with strangers or people I've not seen in years as a response to the podcast and my commentary on social media. I've also had some heart wrenchingly difficult conversations with people in my inner circle that have ended in distraught ruptured relationships but this is the commitment we must have to the BLM movement. It's up to us to talk to one another and not just those in our echo-chamber.  Enjoy the show! You know where to find me...
