Baby Got Black

Baby Got Black

2022-05-0301:04:391

There’s a commonly held belief that Black folks are thicker, bigger, and carry more fat than others…but where did this idea that our bodies only look a certain way come from? Join us as we disentangle fact from oftentimes fat-phobic fiction when it comes to assumptions about how our bodies are shaped. . In our Season 2 finale, "Baby Got Black", we dissect whether here is a genetic difference between the body shape of Black folks compared to other populations. Black women and men have consistently been exoticisized for their unique body features. We explore the genetics behind this starting with a publication by Dr. Jeff on the genetics of body shape and tell the historical stories behind Venus Hottentot (Sarah Baartman). . In Those Genes is an educational podcast that contains explicit language that might be difficult for some to hear. No worries, we got you! You can still get all the facts dropped in our cleaned transcript we affectionately call The Nucleus that will be posted soon. .

This week we travel to 1989 to a conversation with Dr. Edwards and NBC news anchor Tom Brokaw and we bring in the science we learned last week about what role genetics has in athletic ability to this critical conversation about Black superior athletes. . Blackletes Fact and Fiction dissects the claims made in the NBC News Tonight broadcast, “Black Athletes Fact and Fiction” featuring our guest from last week, Dr. Harry Edwards. We use the scientific method as a basis to critique the claims made then with available genetic technology at the time as well as what is available now.

Blackletes

Blackletes

2022-02-2301:00:18

Serena Williams. Usian Bolt. Michael Jordan. Some of the world’s strongest, fastest, and most decorated athletes are Blackity Black. Sometimes people chalk this up to genetics, claiming that this sort of extraordinary athleticism is unique to Black folks’ ancestry. Is there any truth to that claim? In this episode, we untangle what role genetics has in athletic ability and map out how Black Americans came to be viewed as superior athletes in the first place. . Blackletes explores the genetics behind athleticism with sports culture and biomechanist experts. We understand why there is an overrepresentation of Black athletes during certain periods of time vs others and explore if that difference is cultural or innate ability drive physical ability for competitive sports. To do this, we take a deeper look at the science and culture to develop a historical and present day narrative as a basis for trying to disentangle whether athleticism could be traced to Blackness. Are there unique qualities of phenomenal athletes like Serena Williams, Michael Jordan, or Simone Biles that are not seen in other groups of non-Black athletes that can be explained by genetics? .

Oral history is such an integral part of our family history and our collective story as African descendents; without our elders passing this history to us much of our Black History would remain unknown. This Black History Month, we revisit an episode from Season 1 that features one of my newest ancestors, the late “Uncle Warren” and other elders in my hometown of New Orleans as they discuss their views and concerns about commercial genetic testing. . Bonus Episode - “A Tribute to Uncle Warren- Re-airing of “Ion Trust Dem People from Season 1” - In this episode Sam and I travel to my hometown-- New Orleans to hear the perspective of our elders' concerns around privacy within the context of direct to consumer genetic testing companies. We go deep into how to teach our elders what they need to know when taking consumer genetic testing--what to look for and break it down step by step. We address their concerns and even get serenaded by one of our elders, LOL! We will also learn how you can be identified by the forensic scientist using your DNA and of course we have affirmations! . . As a reminder this season airs every OTHER week. .

The R&B Experiment

The R&B Experiment

It isn’t hard to point out the person in the room who is clapping off beat. But how can we use the scientific method to study why some folks are rhythmically coordinated and others not? How does one’s ancestry play into this? In this bonus episode, we head to the In Those Genes lab with neuroscientist AZA Allsop, MD, PhD to map out a hypothetical study using genetics and neurology that could help explain why some of us can catch a beat and others not. .

R&B: Rhythm & Blackness

R&B: Rhythm & Blackness

2022-01-1101:03:04

We all got that one friend that just can’t seem to catch the beat. And yes…yes, they usually are. But is rhythm really a thing you either have or you don’t? Are some of us just born with a rhythm and others not? Could this be explained by genetics? In this episode, we break down what rhythm actually is, and talk to experts who help us understand how neuroscience, genetics, and culture shape the conversation around Black people and our relationship to rhythm and music. . Episode 4: R&B- “Rhythm and Blackness” dives deep into the notion that Black people have rhythm and that it is genetic. We speak to geneticists, neuroscientists, and music experts to better understand if there is a cultural or biological difference between the social construct of race and catching the beat! We will test this hypothesis through an interactive experiment and use music in our community to elicit feelings and memories of some classic tunes that started trends in popular dance culture we see in America today. .

Black Don't Crack

Black Don't Crack

2021-12-3001:01:12

After some time traveling, and understanding why we all look so different, it’s time we look at the age old question: Why aren’t Black people aging? Through all of the beauty products, and magazines that promote youth, Black people never really seem to age. It’s cultural at this point with its cornerstone being JET magazine’s 1970 “Black Don’t Crack” . “Black Don’t Crack” is an adage that assumes that Black people age slower. This episode addresses the genetics behind physical characteristics we associate with aging such as skin (wrinkles and folds), hair loss, memory and telomere length (cellular aging). The science is supplemented by the story of Mrs. Irma Shaw, a 94 year old Black Guyanese woman living in Queens, NY. In “Magic School Bus” -esque vignettes, this episode also uses fictional skits to demonstrate how our cells age over time. . These questions are answered with the help of our guests anthropologist Dr. Tina Lasisi and fellow geneti-“SIS” Dr. Marquitta White. .

The Future is Black AF

The Future is Black AF

2021-12-2110:22

How will humanity continue to evolve? Will our distinct physical features stand the test of time? Do we still adhere to social constructs like race and gender?

Black to the Future

Black to the Future

2021-12-1458:272

Race is a social construct and not a distinction we make in biology. But as humans we do look *very* different from one another. Shoot, family members that share the same genes don’t look the same. Why do we look so different? Join three time-traveling scientists on an afrofuturist journey through the ages to trace how climate, migration, and mating patterns over the last 200,000 years have created all the different hair textures, skin, and eye colors we see today. . “Black to the Future '' is a time travel episode that follows three scientists (Janina Jeff, PhD,, Tina Lasisi, PhD, Brandon Ogbunu, PhD) who travel through time and space and learn how humans developed the physical features that make up the way we look today. Our spaceship Dedelorean guides us to many stops around the world starting South East Africa 200,000 years ago and travels to the many places humans migrated over time. We are looking for answers like, Why the hell do we look different? Who was hitting up which parts of the world and why? How did our adapting genomes interact with the climates around us? And what L’s did everyone catch along the way? . These questions are answered with the help of our guests and over 15 cameo voice guests in our fun skits that help place us in the time and space of our ancestors. .

Is Race Genetic? . “How the World Inherited Blackness” answers a common question by many....."Is race genetic?" This episode takes the listener on a journey through time to understand how race was birthed and the history behind how race became a reputable (pseudo)scientific theory that justified an entire global system of oppression still used today. We leverage the genetics expertise of our host, as well as two Black scholars leading the field in sociology and anthropology, to dive deep into HOW the world inherited Blackness AND we voyage to what a world without race could be. As with any In Those Genes episode, the story of “How the World Inherited Race”, is seasoned with hip hop, fictional characters, and Black culture to create an entertaining , educational, yet personal eargasmic experience for “The Fam”. .

2021-11-1602:22

In Those Genes is BAAAAAAACCCCKKKK for Season 2! "She Get It From Her Moma”, the official title of Season 2 builds on Season 1 and asks the central question in each episode- “Is it genetic?!” Six brand new episodes in this season will focus on understanding the origins of long-held beliefs about inheritance within the Black community that, in some cases, are and are not supported by genetics. For example, one of our favorite episodes, “Black Don’t Crack,” will explore prolonged aging and will take a deep dive into the “fountain of youth” using a genetic lens. Additional episodes will cover the genetics of rhythm, athleticism, and body shape while simultaneously learning the history of how these traits became racialized. This season is filled with more narrative stories, skits, and of course Black culture analogies all paired with a healthy dose of hip hop and TRAP music! WE EVEN SPACE TRAVELING in this thang!

Hey fam! Today we are hitting you with another Intronic episode but this time from high school interns from the Biorocket Program at Genspace who used our show as a model to do some science storytelling themselves. We call their short audio stories, SNP-its, a play upon words from an acronym in genetics that stands for single nucleotide polymorphism and describes common mutations in populations. . Over the next 40 minutes you’ll hear four SNP-its produced by this year’s Biorocket interns. The Biorocket interns worked collaboratively over the course of seven weeks to research, write, and produce a short podcast SNP-it about a science topic of their choosing. They covered everything from CRISPR gene therapies and “designer babies” to the environmental impacts of fast fashion and social impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and how it is disproportionately impacting some communities. . You can find the transcripts from our interns here, bit.ly/32UxffI. . You can find more information about Genspace here, www.genspace.org/ .

We're BACK---well kind of... . This week we want to hit you with a new Rona update all about the development of coronavirus vaccines. This update is inspired by our fam on Black Twitter and the discourse popping up that’s claiming the vaccine will be created to intentionally do harm us Black folks. . Specifically folks who are weary of engaging in vaccine related research or even taking the vaccine when it’s ready because of our history with medical racism and exploitation in this country. . On today’s Rona Update we’re going to speak about those theories, explore the likelihood of a vaccine created with specific intentions to harm one group of people, talk about some of the real concerns to have around the development of a vaccine, and dive deeper into what we really need to know about these vaccines and the trials. .

Welcome to…... the “Intronic Season”. During the intronic season we will be doing episode swaps with other podcasts that are closely related to our show or interviews from shows that I have been on. Some weeks we might just point you to a podcast to listen to, some weeks we might just drop some genetic knowledge on social media through our Henrietta Facts posts, and I will still be dropping that Helix playlist with new music that I am into during this time. So today we are doing an episode swap, we are introducing you to a new podcast, American Origin Stories, a podcast about identity, ancestry, and untold history. Specifically, season 1 explores the foundational ways to learn more about your roots and addresses the question, why is it so difficult for Black Americans to trace their ancestors? On this episode “Know Your Genes: DNA & Personal Identity” they discuss genetics. There are many ways to explore our ancestry - one modern option is DNA. Race may not be a gene or real, but technology now allows us to explore our identity by looking at our genes with direct to consumer genetic testing (e.g., 23andMe, Ancestry.com and more). Join Chris and Chauniece as they continue to explore their origin stories through their DNA and consider the ways in which the results impact their personal perspectives. . Learn more about American Origin Stories and read the blog, here! https://www.americanoriginstories.com/ . If you would like to ALSO give to our freelancers working hard to make the this podcast available who are also impacted by the pandemic you can send them donations for their hard work on this episode with the information.

In our season finale, we continue the discussion with our host, Dr. Jeff and lead producer Sam Riddell to discuss her journey to be becoming the first African American to receive a PhD in Human Genetics from Vanderbilt. We'll do a deep dive on her entire process and discuss how she overcame racism, sexism, and imposter syndrome all while still being focused on the community and centering Black people in her artistry. Then we learn how our Genet-SIS became a podcaster and how the In Those Genes team is making history being the first independent podcast of it's kind. . As promised, we will also have a Rona update at the top of the show. This week our host is back and healthy, discussing what the hottest topic around COVID-19, IMMUNITY! What is it exactly? How do you know you have it? How do we know you specifically have it for the new coronavirus? How effective is it? And how long will you have it? . After recording the Rona update we came across this interesting NY Times article on Immunoprivilege. We didn't have time to include it so we are adding it here, be sure to check it out. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/12/opinion/coronavirus-immunity-passports.html?referringSource=articleShare .

On this episode we’re bringing in our lead producer Sam Riddell to get into some questions about MY thoughts around genetic testing that y'all have been asking me all season. You'll also here Sam give the update on Dat Rona this week and we’re talking all about the SEVERE racial disparities when it comes to diagnoses and deaths resulting from COVID-19. We’re going to talk about the PLETHORA of reasons why Black Americans specifically are dying in higher numbers from the coronavirus and how these statistics are being tracked -- if at all and -- how we should interpret them. Then we are going to lay out a loose a strategy that could have dramatically changed these statistics and envision a better future. .
