All About Labels: Sexuality, Identity, Economics, Politics — #KatieSpeakShow Ep10 11/07/2015

In brief: It’s an all interview episode because I’m doing something rare: taking my own advice. I recorded early to take this weekend off; you’ll have to listen to hear why. I know you’ll love my guests Carrie Nelson and Jesse Myerson as much I do. They’re both on to talk labels and binaries — one in sexuality, culture, and entertainment; the other in economics, systems, and politics.

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation through PAYPAL. Thank you!

The intro pretty much says it all! I’m lucky to have such diverse, thoughtful, and smart friends who use a critical lens to analyze the world and our culture. Today’s two guests are among my favorite people to just listen to talk about the topics that get them excited. Please enjoy Carrie and Jesse and their breakdowns of the things that affect our lives!

Quote of the Show: “Maybe we should just understand that when I say to you ‘I’m bisexual,’ you need to ask me some more questions about my life before you can really know what that means — before you start saying ‘Oh, I know all about bisexuality, it’s this this and this.’” — Carrie Nelson, “the Kinsey of labels”
