UW #47: The Adele Controversy: the Grammys go Non-Binary
Play • 32 min

Adele was accused by the media of being transphobic after saying she was proud to be a female artist when the Grammys had just announced they were pulling the plug on gendered categories.  We dive into a conversation about Adele's past touring and vocal issues as well how this whole Grammys discussion came to be.

!!We realised after recording this that Adele said what she said after the Brits announced they were going non-binary.  Both the Brits and the Grammys went non-binary at the same time - hence our confusion.  This doesn't impact our opinion about both matters much so we decided to keep this episode as is.
