[The Good Doctors Diagnose] Trauma at the Olympics

Y’all know we love the Olympics. We’ve spent a lot of time in the last year talking about the trauma of competition and media coverage and then the story of Russian skater Kamila Valieva dropped in our laps this time around.

Did you know that there are only three countries in the world that weren’t colonized by a European entity at some point in their history? We didn’t either, but it got us thinking about how important the legacy of colonization must be on all the others and we launched our Colonizer’s World Tour in 2021 to investigate further. Each week, we look at a different country, the legacy of colonization within it, and what that place can teach the rest of us about empathy and inclusivity.
