Episode 1.11 Lazy Women & Eating the Rich with Cynara Geissler

For this episode, I made an extremely fancy vegan charcuterie board and invited the always-immaculate Cynara Geissler over to talk about that thing where we’ll all slowly working ourselves to death in a desperate bid to prove our worth. You know, just a light summer afternoon chat. In addition to being a brilliant thinker on the intersections between class, gender, and disability, Cynara is also the marketing manager at Arsenal Pulp Press and the writer of many wonderful things. Here are links to some of them!

The podcast theme song is “Mesh Shirt” by Mom Jeans off their album “Chub Rub.” Listen to the whole album here or learn more about them here.

Cynara’s theme song is “You Don’t Own Me” by Lesley Gore. Why don’t you go watch an awesome live version of it.

  2. Greetings from Sydney, where I’ve recently discovered the podcast and am currently working through back-episodes as quickly as possible!

    We’re often mentioned in the same breath as Vancouver in terms of our similarly-painful housing market (‘the bubble is sure to burst!’ – nope, not yet, still waiting…), which has arisen for many of the same reasons and also in a settler nation.

    Given I am fortunate enough to live in a home that is in the family by way of inheritance – and only then because previous working-class generations were in the right place at the right time, under the right policy conditions – I consider it a duty (though that sounds boring; it’s usually quite fun) to have people stay with me whenever needed: folks between rentals, friends with no-particular-fixed-address, overseas visitors, etc. It absolutely doesn’t solve the problem, and it merely nibbles at the edges of its effects (rather than attacking its causes), but it ‘s something I *can* do, and that is useful…

    Looking forward to the rest of the series!
