About Us

A journey around the world through conversation.News reporting is heavily influenced by business & political models that capitalize on narratives of crisis, war, and disaster. As a result we get a distorted view of what life actually looks like for large segments of the planet, as we’re conditioned to accept stereotypes, political narratives, and judgements that have little basis in reality.Through open conversation and personal stories, Latitude Adjustment will highlight places & communities that are either deprived of context or altogether absent from the media landscape and from our mental maps of the world.As your host, I‘ll also be sharing tips from my years of solo travel. I’ll try to balance a healthy skepticism of political correctness with contempt for oppressive power structures, but work with me, I’m learning and my aim is to inspire others to learn along with me as I confront my own ignorance. Each episode will end with an invitation for you to participate in the conversation.

The Protests - Iraq

Much like the ongoing protests in Lebanon, the protests in Iraq have largely been mobilized by youth, with no clear leadership, and with a decidedly anti-sectarian focus. Unlike Lebanon, protests in Iraq have seen a heavy handed response from the government that has led to more than 300 deaths. We speak with political analyst Raed Jarrar to get more context. This episode is the second in a series on protests around the world. #LatitudeAdjustment_Protests

The Protests - Lebanon

Since mid October Lebanon has seen some of its largest protests in years, and in this a country where sectarianism has been institutionalized since the end of the 15-year-long civil war, it’s noteworthy that one of the issues that protestors are rallying against is sectarianism itself. We talk to activist and development professional Jad Sakr in Beirut. This episode is first in a series on protests around the world.

Transgender Community

Adrien Lawyer is the founder and director of the Transgender Resource Center of New Mexico, an organization that “provides support, community, and connection to transgender, gender nonconforming, nonbinary, and gender variant people and their families through advocacy, education, and direct services.” Whether you identify as transgender, as someone who is questioning, as an ally, or as someone who is skeptical about transgender identity and rights, I think you're going to find this exchange helpful.

Zimbabwe

When I traveled to Zimbabwe as a 14-year-old the country changed how I viewed the world and my place in it forever, and while the country has endured much hardship since I visited back in 1992, it remains a place of wonder in my memory as well as a place and a people deserving of more attention than the negative headlines. Anesu Masube moved around Zimbabwe a lot growing up. We caught up with him in Washington, DC where he currently works as a Technology and International development professional.

The Gulf's Dirty Secret

The Kafala or “sponsorship” system is used throughout the Gulf countries to control migrant laborers. Under the Kafala system a migrant worker’s presence in a host country is linked entirely to their employer, with the effect that their freedom of movement, their living conditions, their ability to leave the country, and their basic dignities are all controlled by their boss. Abuse has been rampant for decades, which is why the work of our guest Vani Saraswathi and Migrant-Rights.org is so critical.

AfricaTown, Alabama (2 of 2)

In this second of a two-part conversation I talk to Major Joe Womack (USMC-retired) about AfricaTown. Now part of Mobile, Alabama, AfricaTown was founded by survivors of the last slave ship to bring Africans to the US. And the shipwreck was just discovered in 2019. Joe Womack was born and raised there and now he is leading a fight to prevent its ongoing exploitation and pollution by toxic industries.
