About the show
Social takeout is a podcast with hosts Sarai Cole and Jeremie Johnson. They talk about provocative social topics like racism, sex, and food, through their lived experiences...sometimes with guests.
Do People Change?
Can people go through meaningful fundamental change after a certain point? We found another topic where we disagree! Or maybe we are saying the same thing but in turns and circles. What do you think, can people change?
Episode 31: Homelessness
We are talking about homelessness, which one of us has personal experience with. We go through the different types and who is most venerable. This is another massive global topic.
BONUS EPISODE: US FETISH
TW: Rape and suicide are mentioned in passing.
Interview with Johannes Müller, a German with a self described US Fetish. We have an interesting discussion about that, Trump, trauma porn, and the shallow but sparkling image projected to the world by the US.

Episode 30! *poppin' bottles* We are talking about sugar daddies. Turns out we found a topic where we don't see eye to eye. Is this type of arrangement a type of sex work? Can someone who is financially desperate have any control or give consent in this type of "relationship"? Is this toxic masculinity at its finest? We have no answers but we sure do have opinions.
More Than Tracy Turnblad Social Media
Episode 29: Fat Phobia
Crossover episode. Listen to the first part of the crossover episode on the "More than Tracy Turnblad" podcast feed on March 22nd.
We're joined by host Abby Morris and we are talking about fat phobia. When was the first time you were made to feel fat, when did you first try dieting, when is body positivity radical?
Episode 28: Colorism
With the Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Oprah interview, this and a number of important, not so talked about issues were thrust into the forefront of popular conversation. Colorism is global, it affects every place that has been colonized (and probably more since American culture and entertainment are so pervasive), and like many systems of oppression it is self perpetuating.
What is expected of men, what's expected of women? Have those expectations and roles changed over time? At times for Jeremie and Sarai it feels like they each don't fit or meet the gender expectations put on them.
Setting healthy boundaries within any relationship can be difficult for some people. This week we're talking about how difficult or easy it has been for us to implement healthy boundaries and how we've enforced them.
Episode 23: How to Build Intimacy in Friendship
Making friends as an adult is hard...or as a kid for some people...Sarai. We both have moved to a new country and experienced having to rebuild a social circle and trying to find true friends with real connections.
Episode 22: Accessibility
Disability comes in different forms but mainly only physical disabilities are taken into consideration when making things "accessible". This week we're talking about accessibility, inaccessibility, and our personal challenges in the past around accessibility.
Episode 21: Mental Illness
We're talking about mental illness. We both have more than one family member who has struggled with their mental health and Jeremie has an anxiety disorder which can be tricky to manage at times. TW: talk about depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia.
