In brief: Melissa McEwan has been blogging since before that was a word and at the forefront of online feminist commentary since those words were first strung together. I’m delighted she was able to join me for some perspective on the current election, its coverage, and the historical context in which its playing out. I also throw in some audio from the Bill Clinton event I covered here in San Diego; a former president stumping for his wife as she makes a run for the White House with a chance to win is unprecedented. You can catch the full video on the show’s Facebook page.
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!
