The Sunken Place is a term/metaphor borrowed from Jordan Peele’s movie, Get Out that explores inner disjointedness. In this episode, the host proposes four conditions that create this condition. Instead of discussing racism, as was the premise of Peel’s interpretation of the Sunken Place, she explores how other conditions in the physical, social and political world also creates disunity with one’s sense of self.
