I have been at work on several things recently and been kept frightfully busy. I’m beginning an internship with the Sylvia Rivera Law Project in a few days, for one; but there’s still more I could be doing, I thought. When my old and dear friend Heather Chase sat down with me and hashed out some ideas for collaborative feminist projects we could work on, we settled on co-hosting a podcast. A Show of Our Own was the product of that and our first episode– with my crappy mic and all– was posted this evening. For Episode 2 I promise to have a much better sound set-up (I already tested it tonight so all systems are go with that, but it was too late for this recording).
But you can take a look at our two hour special first episode- devoted to discussions of material resources in women’s lives. It comes complete with radical music and lots of feministy conversation turning around our personal experiences and some sociological research. From the academic to the personal, we’re trying to bring all of ourselves to this. Readers of this blog will likely be familiar with some of the themes. The goal with the podcast is to create something collaborative, thought provoking, and syncretic; in other words, to synthesise multiple feminist perspectives and the narratives of our personal lives into a radical two hours of podcasting. I encourage all of my regular readers and fans (QM fans, as Bonze Anne put it rather cutely) to pop over and visit.
This podcast is a labour of love and the product of much intellectual collaborating between two deeply passionate and committed women. Hope y’all enjoy it!
