Disorienting Dilemma Podcast

Jake MacIsaac, one of the Restorative Lab’s Associates, hosts this podcast reflecting on issues in society and spreading a restorative perspective. He and his co-host, Chris Jarvis, describe the podcast as:

Two longtime friends, both Canadian – one black, one white, and both men – explore what it looks like to adopt the mindset of an inclusive society. Instead of asking, ”How do we get there?”, Jake and Chris discuss what does it look like to act as if we’re there already.
