Piecing Together the News & Self

Welcome to

the Fragmented Whole

The Fragmented Whole podcast and platform is inspired by the Japanese art form of Kintsugi. This practice repairs broken pottery with gold paste, not as a means to disguise the fragment(s), but acknowledge the beauty of fragility and how imperfection is a part of the objects narrative.

The Fragmented Whole podcast contextualizes the principles of kintsugi by highlighting current events that address personal, interpersonal, and institutional brokenness, and the various tactics taken by individuals and groups to remain resilient and agentic despite marred circumstances. 

Your companionship is welcomed along the journey of fragmented wholeness.
