Overview:

Justice started us off with some really good news on the anti-abortion violence front: Angel Dillard is set to stand trial for threatening a doctor who had planned to become an abortion provider. The case was originally dismissed as “free speech” under the “wish/should/like” clause that is more famous for letting internet harassers off the hook. “Someone should X/Y/Z you” is often not seen as a threat because there is no active verb, i.e. “I will X/Y/Z.” Dillard’s “warning" style rather than committal language declaring she would commit the act described had gotten her off — but no longer. Having this vague threat now taken seriously in a state with so many anti-abortion legislators and law enforcement is a very positive shift.

Then we spent some time on my article for Rolling Stone on the Planned Parenthood attacks and the latest with #StandWithPP.

And before signing off, I dropped a tease: an announcement coming in the next Feminist Round-up….

In brief: I can’t tell you how great it was to be on Dave’s show. I’m a lifelong sports fan and have listened uncountable hours of sports radio; I won’t even pretend I wasn’t jumping-up-and-down excited to be on Edge of Sports Radio.

Overview:

This was definitely some of the most fun I’ve had on air, serious topic aside; I can’t imagine anyone I’d rather talk about the intersection of sports and culture with. Dave is great and everyone should read and listen to all his things. I’m still blushing from the generous compliments at the end of the segment.

We touched on Chicago sports culture, fan culture, and how to deal with the love of a team when a player is accused of something horrific. I gave some high praise to Chicago sports media who have largely gone out of their way to cover Kane’s accusations thoroughly with information on the reality of reporting rape in this country while avoiding any hint of victim blaming. And we hopefully consider that public outcry from fans could lead to teams/leagues handling of accusations and indictments better.

In brief: My regular spot with Hal Sparks on WCPT Radio, Chicago!

Note: I'm a writer and radio host full time, providing much of my content for free. If you can, consider supporting my work by becoming a patron at PATREON or making a one-time donation through PAYPAL. Thank you!

Overview:

Hal had me on to do a little celebration of my new show — something that wouldn’t be happening without him. He contends that he totally knew what he was doing putting me on air the first time (or few times); whether he did or not, I’m definitely grateful. I wouldn’t have considered broadcasting — let alone fallen in love with it — if he hadn’t decided my voice was valuable four years ago.

When I jumped in for hour two, Hal was mid-Trump Fest. He was playing roulette with Trump’s recent stump speech broadcast on C-Span, just hitting play at random places. It was everything you’d expect it to be and more. We also heard from one of Hal’s awesome regular callers who blames Palin — and therefore McCain — for the quality of the 2016 GOP candidates. I definitely see his point.

In brief: Back on with my friend Matthew Filipowicz to talk about the attempted hacks on Planned Parenthood & what they mean in context, perennial presidential candidate Mike Huckabee vowing to call in troops to end abortion, and the GOP’s complete lack of shame or awareness when bragging that they cut SNAP & WIC (they didn’t, but they want to).

Note: I'm an activist/writer/media contributor full-time. If you can, consider supporting my work so I can do more of it by becoming a patron at PATREON or making a one-time donation through PAYPAL. Thank you!

Overview:

It’s always good to be on with Matt who, if you haven’t been around since before the beginning of my restarted writing career, was the first to put me on air to discuss something I wrote. He didn’t care that I didn’t bring a platform of thousands of listeners, readers, or followers; he simply felt my penned-in-frustration-and-honesty abortion story was worth giving airtime to.

In this interview we covered a lot of ground. I talked about the Planned Parenthood videos in broad terms and transitioned to the supposed (unsubstantiated) hacks on their provider information. We put it in the context of anti-abortion targeting and violence, which is what makes even just the claim of stolen personal information an act of domestic terrorism.

We also gave Mike Huckabee and his faux-Constitutional basis for bringing in the FBI to shut down abortion clinics. And then we talked about the GOP’s long-term wish to cut food assistance — you know, because of their commitment to life.

Overview:

I don’t get the chance to talk sports that often (one of the reasons I miss doing AriseTV’s Friday round table) these days, so I jumped at the chance to chat with Justice on my “off” week from the Netroots After Show. We discussed the Jen Welter hire at the Arizona Cardinals and how she’s initially being received around the league as well as Boston activists defeating the costly Olympic bid.

In brief: I got the chance to chat briefly with the ladies from Talk Poverty on radio row at Netroots Nation about why, a couple days into the biggest progressive conference in the country, none of us had heard much about poverty.

Note: I'm an activist/writer/media contributor full-time. If you can, consider supporting my work so I can do more of it by becoming a patron at PATREON or making a one-time donation through PAYPAL. Thank you!

Overview:

I sat with the Talk Poverty hosts for a few minutes at Netroots Nation last month to discuss my just published Rolling Stone piece about food assistance and how food/economic justice seemed largely absent from a conference where the conditions of 45 million poor Americans should be at the forefront.

There is no simple or short answer beyond the compartmentalization of “the left” and how much privilege pervades any space with organizers and journalists colliding with the complicated nature of an epidemic that tacitly approves of between 9-15% of the population at any given time being hungry or on the verge of it. What can we do? Listen to find out. (Spoiler: we have to talk about it.)

Overview:

Today was another true round-up as Justice and I made our way around the country touching on WI Governor Scott Walker’s latest harmful legislation to prove his conservative cred, Netroots Nation 2015 — what was present and what was strikingly absent, and the launch of doctored videos to intimidate and discredit Planned Parenthood providers.

In brief: My chat with John & Molly about how centering marginalized communities brought about the biggest moment in reproductive justice in a generation.

Note: I'm an activist/writer/media contributor full-time. If you can, consider supporting my work so I can do more of it by becoming a patron at PATREON or making a one-time donation through PAYPAL. Thank you!

Overview:

It has definitely been too long since I’ve had the chance to chat with John and Molly; I can’t think of a better reason than the biggest moment in reproductive justice in a generation. We talk about the first proactive legislation in federal history, it’s mainstream support among voters of all demographics, and the way centering the voices and needs of marginalized groups is how this came about.

The unfortunately transexclusionary short-hand name — The EACH Woman Act — is tremendous legislation. It would end all insurance coverage bans in the U.S. including the perpetually reintroduced Hyde Amendment which is attached to the federal budget to prevent tax dollars from providing abortion care. (This is one of many reasons why the GOP’s endless effort to defund Planned Parenthood over abortion provision is ridiculous on its face.)

As per usual, the Knefels ask awesome questions, make great points, and foster thoughtful conversation. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed being on with them!
