Reading

Dignity - A book looking at how the long term commercialization of American Life has impacted what living here now looks like.

The Art of Doing Science and Engineering: Learning to Learn - An epistemological look at what it means to be an engineer. This book has done the most for helping me put a lot of the most complex engineering decisions I have to make or understand into context of other disciplines.

Podcasts

The East Is A Podcast - One of the best podcasts I've listened to for tearing down orientalism and related concepts.

Nice White Parents - This is honestly a really well done podcast about how segregation in schools exists and how upper-middle class White people can make it worse while trying to make it better. I think about this a lot, and I really do think this does a great job of highlighting the tools that White people and white-collar workers learn at work are often toxic when applied in other contexts.
