Love & Walkouts
Play • 33 min

Today we're bringing you an episode from our vault — a love story of student activism. We're taking you back to 1968, when thousands of students participated in a series of protests that helped spark the Chicano Movement, historically known as the East L.A. Walkouts. It's also when high school sweethearts and student organizers Bobby Verdugo and Yoli Ríos danced to a Thee Midniters song and fell in love.

This story originally aired in February of 2019.

Why I'm F*cking Mad (with Jonathan Van Ness)
With the launch of the hit Netflix show, “Queer Eye,” Jonathan Van Ness became a personal grooming guru for unkempt Americans across the country. But JVN has engaged audiences in so much more than better hygiene practices – a year after the show launched, JVN wrote a memoir that helped to demystify living with HIV and what “undetectable equals untransmittable” (or U=U) actually means.    JVN joins us this week to talk about living with HIV, overcoming addiction, and the steps that he hopes the Biden/Harris administration will take to overcome the stigma that he and so many other folks, particularly LGBTQ-identifying, face after coming out as HIV-positive. Tune in, henny.   Keep up with Julián on twitter @JulianCastro and Instagram @JulianCastroTX.    Resources from the episode: Tune into JVN’s podcast, Getting Curious Read JVN’s memoir, “Over The Top” Search for your local Planned Parenthood  Locate additional HIV testing by zip code  Find a PrEP provider by zip code Read up on U=U   Click this link for a list of current sponsors and discount codes for this show and all Lemonada shows.   To follow along with a transcript and/or take notes for friends and family, go to https://www.lemonadamedia.com/show/our-america shortly after the air date.   Stay up to date with us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram at @LemonadaMedia.

Feedback Bunheads by Sophie Flack (rec’d by Caroline) My Casting Couch was too Short by Marion Dougherty (rec’d by Wynnde) Black Sun by Rebecca Roanhorse, The Inheritance Trilogy by NK Jemisin, and The Raven Tower by Ann Leckie (rec’d by Cari) Questions 1. My book club has a “read your own book” format – each month we choose a theme and everyone chooses their own book to read based on it. For February, we’re doing an anti-romance theme. Basically, books about dysfunctional couples who should definitely not be together! The only book I can think of along these lines is Gone Girl (Nick and Amy are the worst). Do you guys have any suggestions for books about dysfunctional relationships? Thanks! -Sarah 2. I dipped my toe into capital-R adult Romance in 2020 for the first time, and… it wasn’t great, mainly because I deeply hate  grand public gestures/declarations of love, and also am not a fan of either the third-act breakup or the ‘this could be resolved in a five minute conversation’ miscommunications! So I’m looking for books that don’t contain any of the above, please! Other details: any sub-genre is fine; I like steamy kissing but not *too* much explicit sex (a little is okay); I’m not super keen on enemies to lovers but it’s not a hard no; and if it could have an easily accessible audiobook that would be extra great! (But I know this is a lot of very specific asks so if it doesn’t tick all the boxes that’s okay.) As I say, I’m very new to Romance so super mainstream things are probably fine! (The main authors I’ve read from are Christina Lauren, Alyssa Cole and Tessa Dare: my feelings on all of them were pretty ambivalent.) Thank you so much! -Hana 3. I love your podcast and listen to every episode 🙂 I’ve gotten many great recs from other people’s requests, and now I have a request of my own! I’d like to read a “cozy” mystery novel with a sizeable cast of interesting, well-developed characters. I’m thinking something like the Orient Express or Murder on the Nile. Nothing too heavy, and no sexual violence/ domestic abuse please! There can be some violence (a la murder weapons being wielded), but preferably in the background, and not graphic.  -Radhika 4. I was unemployed for all of 2020, which forced me to examine my relationship to work and how I tie my self-worth to productivity. I’m interested in reading books about how to untie this relationship, about ending toxic productivity obsessions, or about upending or breaking capitalistic ideas about work being inherently “good”, etc.  Normally I’m a fiction reader, but this feels like non-fiction territory to me.  Thanks so much, -Josh 5. My dad reads mostly nonfiction history and political books. Recently, I found him browsing the sci-fi section of our local bookstore. I asked him if he thinks he’d enjoy reading more fiction. His response was that growing up he read a ton of science fiction, but now all the authors he enjoyed are dead. Morbid, right?! Anyways I don’t think he really knows where to start. He’s read all the classics – Dune, the Foundation series, etc. I was hoping to give him a great sci-fi anthology that will appeal to his love of these classics, but also help him discover contemporary authors that he might enjoy. Ideally the collection would be made up of multiple contemporary authors, who have full length novels or series that he could explore after.  Thanks so much! I really love your show. I’ve read a lot of great books based on your recommendations.  -Maggie 6. I just wanna say, your podcast is so great! I listen to it all the time! I’m looking for a book (young adult) that has a lot of high adventure, epic questing type stuff, but with NO PINING. I am so sick of pining, and just romance in general in YA novels or series, and I haven’t been able to find anything with none to really really really minimal amounts of it. Some books in this genre that I enjoyed (but that have too much pining in them for my tastes right now) are Children of Blood and Bone, The Hazel Wood, Aurora Burning (although I’m looking for something a little more in the fantasy realm and less sci-fi), and The Hobbit (because of course). I enjoy books with really rich language, and some authors I like are Roshani Chokshi and Catherynne M. Valente. Please help! -Quinn 7. Classics with a bright storyline(something like pride and prejudice). Ps : I am a Downton Abbey fan too. -Hash Books Discussed Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff A Separation by Katie Kitamura Off Base by Annabeth Albert (tw: homophobia) 40-Love by Olivia Dade (cw: mention of fatphobia) Murder at the Grand Raj Palace by Vaseem Khan Proper English by KJ Charles (cw: homophobia, racism) How To Do Nothing by Jenny Odell  Can’t Even by Anne Helen Petersen A People’s Future of the United States, edited by Victor LaValle Vagabonds by Hao Jingfang, translated by Ken Liu (cw: suicide) Forest of Souls by Lori M.

110: Six Minute Sex Ed w/ Kim Cavill
Talking openly about sex is very new to me. I openly share about religion and parenting but have little experience sharing about my sex life. It feels very private so it’s hard to be vulnerable in that way. A lot of parents experience this same issue in trying to raise their own kids with healthy sexuality. This week’s guest, Kim Cavill, struggled through the lack of sex education as a child and is now passionate about keeping other kids from going through what she did. Kim started teaching sexual education for people with disabilities and those who worked with them in Australia. She now hosts the podcast Six Minute Sex Ed. On her podcast, she gives children the information and tools they need to not be as vulnerable to sexual trauma and abuse. Tune in to hear Kim and I discuss sex ed and how to discuss sexuality honestly. Show Highlights: * Kim’s story and her experience with religious trauma. * How to balance the privacy of our sex lives with the need to make those conversations open and public. * Why there is such a lack of sex ed in the home. * Research from the Kinsey Institute on our sexual identifications and behavior. * Why parents need to think of themselves more as a mentor to their kids than a teacher. * How to work through our own triggers when we talk to our kids about sex. * How to talk about sex-positivity in a sex-negative culture. * Why education isn’t a switch you can turn off and on. * How to stop carrying others’ trauma. * What our kids really want to hear from us about sex.
