This past week has been a very emotionally painful time for our country. We stand with my sisters and brothers on the front lines fighting for change, who are risking their lives daily to create a better world for all of us. As an intersectional feminist, I want to raise awareness of the interlocking systems of oppression that continue to be used to dominate, subjugate, and harm women, people of color, the LGBTQ community, people with disabilities, and anyone deemed less than or less valued than able-bodied, cis-gendered white men.
We are podcasters united to condemn the tragic murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor and many many others at the hands of police. This is a continuation of the systemic racism pervasive in our country since its inception and we are committed to standing against racism in all its forms.
We believe that to be silent is to be complicit.
We believe that Black lives matter.
We believe that Black lives are more important than property.
We believe that we have a responsibility to use our platforms to speak out against this injustice whenever and wherever we are witness to it.
In creating digital media we have built audiences that return week after week to hear our voices and we will use our voices to speak against anti-blackness and police brutality, and we encourage our audiences to be educated, engaged, and to take action.
