Welcome to the 131st episode of the award-winning Diverse Minds podcast. This month’s theme is all about recognition. In particular, recognising things we may take for granted and things outside our sphere of reference. So, in today’s episode, I’m going to be talking about how true crime podcasts can help us to see and recognise bias.

Quotes from how true crime podcasts can get us to recognise bias
- Unconscious bias refers to a bias, is something that we’re unaware of, and it happens outside of our control.
- Past experiences influence our thinking, which shape our future view.
- “We see the world as we are, not as it is” Anais Nin.
- We may also ignore the faults of people we like, and notice the faults more of people from groups we unconsciously don’t like.
- When people are more tired, and under time pressure, the more vulnerable they are.
