The Hardcore Skeptic Examines Social Justice #4

Hey everyone, this is my interview with Edwin; a Phd candidate in sociology. I say in my commentary on this one that I didn't have time to do any background fact checking but eventually I did so most of the things that I thought needed to be verified are in the links below. Edwin also gave me a bunch of links and studies which are also available for you to read. 

My guest doesn't have a website or anything to promote so I'm just going to plug in all the resource links I have from this interview. There are a lot of them.ündel

It's All in the Name: Employment Discrimination Against Arab Americans:

How blind auditions help orchestras to eliminate gender bias (The Guardian):
