We explore protests and what it means to protest!
To celebrate the end of Mental Health Awareness Month, Courtney and Olivia tackle how you can make the world a more welcoming place to people who are having a hard time with mental health. We cover everything from approaching someone you're worried about to finding a therapist to providing long term support. Find out how you can be a real cool, awesome friend by listening.
It's meandering, it's off the rails, it's a classic episode of Super Serious Social Justice! We have a new sound editor, Carly, and we take this opportunity to introduce them and share some of their thoughts and opinions on social justice, including hot takes like "what is a social justice sound editor?", "why are clothes sexist?", and "can we let the cats out?"
It's Brianne's birthday and we're celebrating with a minisode that contains not one segment covering the heartbeat bill in Iowa, but TWO WHOLE SEGMENTS covering the heartbeat bill in Iowa because we are good at communicating with each other. This is also our first episode with our new actual editor and we're SO EXCITED.
In today's episode we're not actually in the same physical space...we're hanging out at Orbit Con, an online conference for atheists who are into social justice! We decided to bring them the topic of body image this week, and it gets hairy (a bit like bodies). Listen in for Olivia going off the rails about philosophy, Brianne being thoughtful, and Courtney singing. Basically a regular episode.
It's a minisode week, so we're back with quick hits on everything from Pregnancy Crisis Centers to Kesha. Get your social justice fix by checking in on the state of the world in a super serious manner.
Our episode today focuses on the documentary Deej, a story of a nonverbal autistic man and his journey from high school to college.
We've got Boko Haram updates, some good parodies, thoughts on March for Our Lives and Autism Awareness Month. Time to get mini.
In this episode we give you some in depth insights into recent topics, replace curse words with clinical terms, sing a LOT, and say vaguely inappropriate things. So a normal week basically.
It's Minisode 12 and we're talking about International Women's Day, Barbies, the RGB documentary and more! Join us to learn a whole lot in less than 30 minutes.
We love therapy. We love it so much we're spending a full hour telling you all the amazing things we learned from it. No seriously...it's fantastic.
We're back with one of our patented minisodes. This week we're tackling everything from some truly awful topics that leave us in tears to things that make us giggle like nobody's watching (is that a phrase? It's a phrase now).
What does atheism have to do with social justice? Should atheists care about social justice? How many episode titles can Olivia and Brianne come up with in one episode? These questions and more answered.
It turns out recording in the same place is hard, so we come to you again with some small reports of things that are on our minds. Topics range from police assault to menstrual products in prisons.
Brianne was out, so Courtney and Olivia get punchy and cranky about the SuperbOwl. There's singing. There's talking in sync. There's an astoundingly impressive tummy growl. You know you want it.
