GBA 310 CJ And Arlie
20 Sep 2017 @ 10:24 am

In GBA 310 we get better acquainted with CJ and Arlie from The Boy Who Hasn't Lived podcast. The podcast they make is about "one friend forcing the other to read the entire Harry Potter book series for the first time" and after they tell me why they make the show I get into my issues with the Harry Potter books. From there the conversation covers problematic faves, navigating the world, calling out and calling in, dealing with individuals and with systems, looking at the intersections around gender, race and power and how everything is COMPLICATED and that's okay!

In GBA 302 we get better acquainted with Nicole Henriksen.
