Collectively, Kaarina and I are bringing you some ~extremely chill vibes~ today. I’m talking about why we need to embrace the radical potential of podcasting as a medium that has yet to be fully absorbed into the mainstream, but I’m lying on my couch while I do it. And Kaarina’s self-care corner features a very special guest star with some important insights on gentleness. It might be my favourite self-care corner yet. And now? Links!
- Did I mention that you should save the date for the next Vancouver Podcast Festival? Because you should save the date for the next Vancouver Podcast Festival. (It’s November 7-10, that’s the date you should save.)
- “Born out of the same open publishing technology as blogs, podcasting was once a quirky backwater pond of digital curiosity…” Read up on what Spotify’s $230 million Gimlet deal means for podcasting.
- “For all its lofty rhetoric, Google is an advertising broker, selling our attention to companies that will pay for it. The longer people stay on YouTube, the more money Google makes.” This is a good piece on how YouTube radicalizes users.
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. Follow me @hkpmcgregor, follow Kaarina @kaarinasaurus, and tweet about the podcast using #SecretFeministAgenda.
Secret Feminist Agenda is recorded and produced by Hannah McGregor on the traditional and unceded territories of the Squamish, Musqueam, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.
