Episode 5: The Principle of Radical Inclusion According to Us and Random

Radical inclusion Evan and Stever? Instead of you two blabbering on and on, why not include someone else in your podcast finally! Answering the call, we bring on “Random” or Maher who’s a long-time burner and part of key volunteer leadership with Census Camp. Tune in to hear us discuss this principle, within the context of data from Census Camp on the demographic makeup of the Burning Man community – age, race, education, income, etc etc. Per usual, we get into the nuances of this principle and discuss controversial ways this principles is used to accept or deny involvement on playa. We also talk about why there isn’t more racial diversity on playa and its ties to economic considerations that privilege those with the means to get tickets and provide for themselves during a week off in the desert. We recognize we’re three privileged dudes offering our perspectives here, so please see the references and resources links for some other voices on and around this topic.

It’s just according to us disclaimer: We are not a part of the official Burning Man Project 501(c)3 nor Burning Man Organization and so we don’t represent this larger legal structure and institution. The opinions are solely our own as merely two individual participants among a city of 70,000+ and a community of way, way more. You know…it’s just according to us…
