Ep 111: #FreeBrittneyGriner
Play • 1 hr 25 min
Money is back this week talking a tea to help calm your nerves, which was much needed after hearing that WNBA star (and lesbian heartthrob) and 2x Olympic Gold Medalist Brittney Griner has been detained in Russia for over 3 weeks. I talk my understandings of what's going on, what scares me about the timing of her detainment, and hopes for her safe return home (timestamp in the description for this discussion). Gloria Anzaldua is QueerWOC of the week this week and her words were a much needed and timely reminder of what we face as QWOC.
