Okay I obviously don’t normally use this podcast to promote my side hustles but I want very badly to tell you about this project I’ve been working on for the past year and a half, and which launched just yesterday!

Episode 3.6 Dismantling the Patriarchy Has to be a Vocal Game with Clayre Sessoms

11/9/2018
More
Content warning for discussions of sexual assault and transphobia. Like so many good things, this episode started one way and ended up another. I invited Clayre to chat about singing, and we ended up talking about community and harm and silence and what we do (or don’t do) to feel like we belong. Oh, and we … Continue reading Episode 3.6 Dismantling the Patriarchy Has to be a Vocal Game with Clayre Sessoms

Episode 3.5 Ableism and Doing a Bit Better Every Day

11/2/2018
More
It’s been another rough week, folks! But rather than getting bogged down in despair at the seeming indestructibility of the goddamn patriarchy, I’m think about something that brings me a little bit of hope: the generosity of critique, and the possibility of doing a little bit better every day. That’s something we can all manage, … Continue reading Episode 3.5 Ableism and Doing a Bit Better Every Day

10/26/2018
More
Content warning for discussions of mental health, depression, and infertility. This episode opens with me explaining the entire premise of Secret Feminist Agenda to my long-term collaborator and dear friend Marcelle Kosman, because Marcelle does not listen to Secret Feminist Agenda, and the fact that my love for her is unimpeded by this negligence is a good … Continue reading Episode 3.4 Parenting, Mental Health, and Drinking Wine in a Rec Room with Marcelle Kosman

Episode 3.3 Reading for Alternative Futures, or Hannah’s Sad Bookclub

10/19/2018
More
Not quite a content warning but definitely a heads up, that I’m talking a little bit this week about death and grief and apocalyptic despair. But only a little! Mostly I’m talking about the books that have been not just blowing my mind this year, but helping me to think differently about death, loss, climate … Continue reading Episode 3.3 Reading for Alternative Futures, or Hannah’s Sad Bookclub

I am extremely stoked that you get to meet one of my favourite Vancouver-based humans, the extremely brilliant author and podcaster Andrea Warner. We talk about her new book, Buffy Sainte-Marie: The Authorized Biography, as well as the overwhelming whiteness of music journalism, different tactics for fucking shit up, and what it might look like … Continue reading Episode 3.2 Buffy Sainte-Marie and Music Journalism with Andrea Warner

Episode 2.29 Rereading/Rewatching/Rethinking

8/17/2018
More
Get ready, because this is one of those extra-fun minisodes where I’m kind of figuring something out, out loud, as I record, so it’s a bit more like a word collage than a well-wrought urn, but it’s definitely ~20 minutes of me talking so you can’t say it doesn’t count as a minisode. Links! The Buffy … Continue reading Episode 2.29 Rereading/Rewatching/Rethinking

Episode 2.27 Slow Down!

8/3/2018
More
This week I’m talking about slowing down within capitalism’s poisonous culture of speed, and how we can make our own slowness sustainable for ourselves and our communities. It’s complicated! It’s probably worth figuring out! Here are some links! First, I cite a bunch of articles about the slow movement in its various permutations, so let’s … Continue reading Episode 2.27 Slow Down!

Episode 2.26 Getting Deeply Into Sourdough with Emily Hoven

7/27/2018
More
It’s hot as heck in Vancouver (and, apparently, most of the world) right now, but in this episode I’m harkening back to cooler days (i.e. May) when the ever-delightful Emily Hoven visited me to talk (and make) sourdough. We chat about the ethics of care, sourdough science, the new domesticity, and why everyone just wants … Continue reading Episode 2.26 Getting Deeply Into Sourdough with Emily Hoven

6/29/2018
More
We’re getting deep into academic corner this week with academic coach Jennifer Askey. Together we talk about how grad school does or doesn’t prepare you for the work of being a professor (spoiler alert: it doesn’t), the relationship between academic coaching and the neoliberal university, and how to build space for yourself and others from within … Continue reading Episode 2.24 Being a Little Bit Bigger and More Awesome than you Feel Most Days with Jennifer Askey

Episode 2.21 KITTIES!

6/8/2018
More
When I sat down to record this episode, I was thinking about travel and family visits and how they take a toll on my mental health.

Episode 2.18 Landwhales and Fat Liberation with Jes Baker

5/18/2018
More
Content warning for discussions of diet culture, mental health, and suicide. This episode is a real Momentous Occassion for me because I have been a fan of Jes Baker‘s work for YEARS. She was probably the first body positive activist who crossed my radar, and her “Attractive & Fat” campaign felt revolutionary to me.
