Episode 58: Harassment

In which the trio talks about the sometimes-touchy subject of various kinds of harassment. Don't worry, the whole episode isn't doom and gloom, we swear!

Disclaimer: We are three white, cisgender people and as such we don't really go into racism or intersectional topics aside from gender, as that's not our lane or lived experience. We speak almost entirely from personal experience in this episode.
For a bit more on those topics, we recommend our discussion with Chris Spivey (episode 46) or James Mendez Hodes' website, at https://jamesmendezhodes.com, just two of many discussions on topics we didn't cover.
