The Naked Truth: Real Talk about West Coast Swing

70 EpisodesProduced by Eric JacobsonWebsite

A weekly podcast where host Eric Jacobson discusses West Coast Swing, our dance community, and the impact they both have on all of us personally.


Safety and consent

Many of us dance West Coast Swing for the joy of sharing in musical expression with someone else. Unfortunately, there are times when people cross personal boundaries, and times when people are harassed, abused, and even sexually assaulted. In this (extra long) episode, we first interview Lizzi Kampff-Jansen, a licensed independent clinical social worker, to discuss the nature of this problem in our society today. Then we're joined by Shantala Davis to chat about this problem in our dance community, as well as some of the ways we can move towards a culture where everyone feels safe and comfortable. Settle in for a serious discussion about a sensitive but critically important topic affecting our community.
