It’s rare that you get to meet, befriend, and ultimately work with someone you find inspirational. I have been lucky enough to do all three with the supremely fantastic Katie Goodman. She’s hilarious and thought provoking and brilliant — have you seen her TEDxTalk?? — and I have the privilege of calling her a partner in unfuckery.
After Katie’s badass song “I Didn’t Fuck It Up” became a hit on YouTube, she discovered that a lot of people looked at the problems around them with the same desire to fix things followed by the paralyzing question: “What exactly can I do?” What developed was UnFuck It Up — a project dedicated to honoring and showcasing people who are engaged in the effort to change the world, or at least their corner of it.
Katie has since sucked me into her world and we’re weaving a web of unfuckery! We have nominees and winners and podcast interviewees who expose real world evil villains pillaging poor countries, bring communities together through humor, fight domestic violence, photograph grassroots activism, dedicate their lives to LGBTQ rights and assist poor women in accessing health care.
This week Katie sat me down to discuss activism, frustration, positivity, fighting burnout and how to find your niche in a world with so many needs. The podcast is less an interview and more friends chatting about how we see the world, how unfuckable it is and how much we hope everyone within earshot will join in:
