I’ve set a new record in this, the first minisode of 2020, for just how mini a minisode can be. Turns out? pretty mini! But that’s okay, it’s a new year and we’re being gentle with ourselves.
- This week’s topic was inspired by this tweet.
- And here’s the thread of great responses about how people are being gentle with themselves this January.
- Finally, Jia Tolentino’s Trick Mirror, specifically the essay “Always Be Optimizing,” has been challenging me to rethink how we try to optimize our own lives. You can listen to an abridged version here!
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 and tweet about the podcast using #SecretFeministAgenda. Want to email me about your killjoy survival kit? Send it to secretfeministagenda(at)gmail(dot)com.
