Thanks for checking out our first episode! This one is a pretty personal topic, so a few times I come off a bit disconnected. Listen through and give us your feedback, questions, and suggestions. Thanks for being here. Much love! xox
Synopsis: It’s our first episode, featuring guest Andy Wilson of Big Shiny Robot and the Bored as Hell Podcast, where Brooke is also a co-host. We talk about feminism, why we’re feminists, the wage gap, rape and sexual assault at BYU and the BYU Honor Code, dick pics, the Fruitcake Lady, believing rape allegations rather than being skeptical, male privilege, and lots more.
Feminism. Why Brooke comes at things as a feminist. Why Andy is a feminist.
The wage gap. Why is this still a thing in 2016? TV anchor mansplaining. Utah culture. Brooke’s living situation.
