The Shift Episode 100: The Pedagogy of the Oppressed with Dr. Cynthia McKinney

Enjoy this 100th episode of The Shift as host Doug McKety discusses current coronavirus messaging through the lens of Paulo Friere’s “Pedagogy of the Oppressed”. This important conversation bridges the left/right paradigm utilizing Friere’s concept of dialogue as a tool for liberation in contrast to the dialectic approach behind most teaching methodologies as well as most political propaganda. We then apply these concepts to the current pandemic crisis and analyze how much of what we ingest as news conforms to Friere’s descriptions of a pedagogy of colonization and oppression.
