Listen now (24 mins) | an audio letter about how we hate women too much to ever let everything be ok
I love listening to you - thank you for this!
I know this wasn’t the main point of your message but as a Floridian I truly appreciate you mentioning that it isn’t as easy as “just move.” My husband and I have lived here for ten years; we moved here to be close to family, and we both have careers that require state-specific licensure. As hard as it is to hear about the horrifying legislation being spearheaded by our governor, it is even more awful to experience it up close—and yet, this is our home and there are many, many hurdles to moving somewhere else.
I so loved this!!! You talk to us like we're all together in one room, or on a group phone call. And you totally get what's going on--how many others do/will? I have friends who think DeSantis is "such a nice man, and good husband" (their words!!!) It's BULLSHIT, and yet. Tons of women voted for Trump, and they had the same info about his track record with women as we did, they just didn't believe it. You are right about how this country feels about women, and the women who don't think so? They need to stop thinking that every little thing will be Ok because the men will take care of it. That was never, and will never be an option.
I listen this morning while drinking my coffee and generally starting my day. And I wanted to respond, because it felt like you were hanging out with me. I love that about these tiny, informal voice memo/voicemail notes
I’ve been having a similar conversation with myself about the Martha Stewart SI cover. She could have opted to model moving beyond the male gaze but instead??? Would love to hear your take on that whole sitch.
I didn’t realize that there was a podcast attached to this so I just read the notes and links with less context. I read the Casey Desantis article and am ashamed that I didn’t pick up on the tropes when I read it. I was just disturbed by her. After listening I can see it. I appreciate you training me to be a more savvy and critical reader.
Is the only way to listen to the podcast via Substack? I consume a lot of podcasts, and was wondering if there is (or might be in the future) a way to consume in a standard podcast app?
