  1. Awesome music at the intro and conclusion! Your episode raises awareness about an important aspect of slavery that is often sanitized or not discussed at all. While it is difficult to talk about violence, you navigated through this topic responsibly and with sensitivity. When we understand systems of oppression, punishment, and violent consequences that were designed to dehumanize people, we also better understand how a society sanctioned those systems in the first place. I really enjoyed listening to your case study on Solomon Northup, both through historical sources and as represented in the movie, Twelve Years a Slave. As difficult as this history can be, it is so important that we spread this information and educate others. Your podcast was a great example of this kind of work, thank you for sharing such profound thoughts about this subject!
