In this episode I’m talking to Max Collins, campus radio advocate and producer behind the new investigative podcast “Dragged Out.” We discuss about four thousand things, including: community-based podcasting, drag performance and gender, Vancouver real estate, funding/monetizing art, and queer community building across generations. Also I say some shit that just might upset Toronto listeners. Sorry Toronto listeners! Here are some links!
- First off, you can find out about all of Max’s work here.
- How accurate was my micro-history of podcasts? Compare and contrast!
- We discuss a lot of podcasts in this episode, and here are some of them:
- My explanation of Marshall McLuhan’s idea of hot and cool media wasn’t completely wrong, but read this for a proper explanation.
- And here’s a great article asking exactly how good RuPaul’s Drag Race has been for drag.
- My reference to building more space for kids and parents in queer community was inspired by conversations with friend-of-the-pod Zena, who has recommended this book on the topic.
- Finally, I’m hoping to do an episode about this book, but either way you should definitely be buying Hustling Verse: An Anthology of Sex Workers’ Poetry, edited by Amber Dawn and Justin Ducharme.
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. Max’s theme song was “RAINBOW” by Gender Confetti.
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.
