Expert Extra #18: Susan Bordo, author of The Destruction of Hillary Clinton

June 29, 2018

Susan Bordo, cultural historian, #feminist scholar, and author of The Destruction of Hillary Clinton, which we recommended last year, generously sat down with us for a comprehensive and wide-ranging interview on what happened in the 2016 presidential election, the problem of James Comey, Trump's lack of "pivoting," and how to sustain ourselves as the low points go lower and power keeps reinforcing itself. The discussion also covers questions of clarity in our #activism and the complicity of the media, how Susan helps her college students through this moment of despair, her work as a public intellectual, and what she is working on next. Spend this hour with us and feel validated and refreshed.

Expert Extra #14: Attorney Bridget Brave on sexual assault in the news

December 1, 2017

This week's Expert Extra features attorney Bridget Brave discussing sexual assault and what seems to be a potential cultural shift toward believing women as well as less tolerance for male abuse of power.

Bridget practiced law in Wisconsin for seven years as a juvenile public defender, a felony-level prosecutor, and an advocate for children of violent crime, and uses her legal expertise to contextualize this conversation.
