we need to ask better questions
It seems to be a sort of accepted thing...the most strident homophobes are closeted gays! the idea has never sat super well with me. so i found a super smart person to talk to us about why its a crap idea. we also spend some time talking more broadly about how our society does a terrible job of studying questions related to marginalized groups. here's some folks doing good work with marginalized folks in research if you're interested! Dr. Christian Chan Dr. Adrienne Erby Dr. Anneliese Singh Florence Ashley

a bunker? in this economy?
the word prepper has a certain image attached to it. but its not exactly right. and there's some valuable stuff we can learn from fellow leftists who are preppers. and given the unrest that's almost sure to follow the election, i think its a good idea to think about these things and take some steps to keep you and yours safe. check out these resources: https://medium.com/@kittystryker https://live-like-the-world-is-dying.pinecast.co/ https://bookshop.org/books/a-paradise-built-in-hell-the-extraordinary-communities-that-arise-in-disaster/9780143118077

when you actually get cancelled
A full transcript of this episode is available here There's been a lot of talk about cancel culture lately. Its the 21st century version of the Satanic Panic. There was an open letter released by Harpers Magazine decrying this new climate of what they called censorship and suppression of views that diverge from the mainstream. They never get too specific. But when you see the names of the people who signed this open letter, their actual meaning becomes pretty clear pretty quick. My new friend Dawn has some feelings about that. She came out as trans and *actually* became the target of the sort of thing the signatories of this letter imagine they're experiencing.

intention is the secret sauce
You might remember Miri from a few weeks ago when they gave us some really good coping tips for the moment we're living in. Miri's also a breast cancer survivor. They created a super meaningful ritual in response to their impending double mastectomy. So they share that story and then talk a little bit about how we might build rituals into our own lives to find meaning and to cope.

James and Kat
Awhile back I did an interview for another podcast I was producing. I made the episode and released it in the other feed, but 1. i don't know that i did the best job putting together the episode. I was punching above my weight as a producer, and 2. the episode got like 40 downloads because it was on a totally different feed and it was like the 2nd or 3rd episode i did in that series. These folks deserve better! In these trying times, a story about folks persevering and coming out okay on the other side. Love you, friends

Online gaming isn't always known for being the most wholesome thing. But I found a game that really nails it. I played it a little and talked to one of the folks that helped make it. Wholesome content this week (except for me repeating a nasty thing I heard someone say in a game once. You can skip to 1:51 to get past that part and you'll still get the wholesome). Love you friends <3 The music in this episode is from the actual Kind Words soundtrack and its freaking rad. The composer's name is Clark Aboud and his stuff is amazing. He graciously gave permission for me to use his music for the sound design in this episode. Its streaming on Spotify and Apple music, and you can purchase it directly _here_.

I saw a pretty disgusting display on Facebook a few weeks ago. A newly out trans woman did something pretty cool. And instead of celebrating her achievements, some members of the trans community went after her for not taking more care with her appearance, whatever the hell that means. We don't do respectability politics here, so I invited her on to talk about what she accomplished, how it felt to have your own community come after you, and what she has planned for the future.

Some important stuff is happening at The United States Supreme Court on October 8th. The question: does the 1964 Civil Rights act protect LGBTQ folks from employment discrimination.

what if they disagree?
This past weekend, I had the privilege of attending Skepticon in St Louis. Among other awesome things that happened, I moderated a panel called "What if They Disagree?" How do we handle it when there seems to be an internal disagreement among a marginalized group. What is our place as allies in trying to advance the causes of racial justice, gender justice, and so on, when we're confronted with conflicting views from inside those groups. There is right and wrong, but no group is a monolith. Its a difficult question, and one we tried to tackle in this panel discussion. Check out these important links!

life is not a cartoon
Humans love narrative. We base much of our lives around it. It's very important for that reason. It's why so many of us find so much meaning in TV shows and books and movies and comics and so on. But there comes a point where reality overrides that. This week's show uses a tarot reading to take me from start to finish through that process on a super important question I'd been ruminating over. Tony's kickstarter is here
