Same Same Different

When your buddies tell you “we like you because you’re not like most black people,” should you throw down or lay low? How do you support your transgender kid when their own sibling thinks transgender is a misguided choice? What makes someone an “other,” anyway?

Same Same Different will tackle these issues and more over five episodes, starting October 7. Host Bryce Huffman and his guests will explore identity and how to survive “otherness” with our full humanity and sanity intact.

Where do you feel like you belong?

The question of where do we fit in is one we all face at some point. And some people have an easier time answering it than others.

When was the first time you decided to flip the script on all the negative stuff you were programmed to believe about yourself?

Take Virgie Tovar, for example. She is a body image activist and the author of the forthcoming book, "The Self-Love Revolution: Radical Body Positivity for Girls of Color." She also wrote the book, “You Have The Right To Remain Fat."

How do you decide when it’s the right time to say something or stay silent?

Michigan Radio's Bryce Huffman, creator and host of a new podcast Same Same Different, joined Stateside to talk about the launch of the podcast and what listeners can expect to gain from it.

Throughout the five episodes, Huffman and guests will explore issues around identity and how to survive “otherness,” which he describes as “that feeling that you’re different, and sometimes even less than, the people around you.” 

We are looking for your help! Michigan Radio is launching a new podcast on October 7 called Same Same Different.

The show is about identity – and how to survive otherness with our full humanity intact.
