In brief: The delightful Tom Cheevers had me on his Netroots Radio original show to talk about how I got where I am, reproductive rights, and politics in general. It was a really delightful chat; I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

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

Overview:

First, I continue to ask, if defunding or ending Planned Parenthood (or trying to) is so vital: Why is it only important to the GOP when the budget is due in like five seconds?

Hal and I discussed the debate — both the theater and the talking points the eventual candidate will be unable to run from in the general election; not every debate is going to be “moderated” by Jake Tapper. I play Politifact and explain why the GOP can’t actually defund Planned Parenthood the way they’re portraying; yes, people would lose access, but no, they can’t strip all the funding because that’s not how it works.

I also make Carly Fiorina’s lies about the CMP videos even worse: they preyed on a grieving family by stealing footage of an intensely sad moment to portray something that doesn’t actually happen, but is a necessity in their talking points to end abortion care.

Louisiana is the state Hal was referencing that Planned Parenthood is suing to restore funding. That kind of fight is expensive; PP shouldn’t have to do that and patients shouldn’t have to wonder if the clinics will be open and their healthcare will be available when they go for an appointment.

My HuffPostLive segment I referenced during the show: "HuffPostLive Panel: Will The GOP Actually Defund #PlannedParenthood? (09/17/15)”

This headline is awful & why is this even a poll? But they include a comparison of PP vs GOP, so here it is: "How the Public Views Planned Parenthood and the NRA” via Meet The Press, NBC News

In brief:My regular feminist round-up spot with Justice!

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:

Today Justice and I dug into the rift sex work causes in "Capital F” Feminism and why being an out ally as someone who has never been a sex worker is so important. We also talked about the immigrant in Texas who was reported by staff at her doctor’s office and arrested when she went for her annual exam. And then I gave an update on anti-choice violence with a report on the Washington Planned Parenthood rebuilding after arson — despite it not be a location that provides abortions. Pro-life setting shit on fire to stop life-saving preventative medicine.

Overview:

This week, Justice and I previewed the first Katie Speak Show including guests, topic, format and what I’m envisioning as its place in news, culture, and discourse. We also talked about the Pope and his limited time offer for abortion absolution. I love talking organized religion with Justice because he thought he wanted to be a priest — until he got to seminary school.
