    Live At Murmurs With Amelian Kashiro Hamilton, La Pachamami, Fatima Iqbal-Zubair & Emily Barker

    Tierney Talks celebrated one year of podcasting with a live show at Murmurs, a favorite art gallery, cafe, shop and community space in LA. The variety-show-esque program consists of readings, musical performances, conversations and a DJ set. Here’s the timing of everything, just in case you want to listen out of order: 2:15 - A karaoke-centric reading & performance by writer, sartorialist and Sisters With Invoices founder Amelian Kashiro Hamilton. 18:04 - PLUR poetry and pop music by artist, organizer and co-founder of Cosmo Visiones Ancestrales La Pachamami. 33:09 - A one-on-one conversation with State Assembly Candidate Fatima Iqbal-Zubair about how representatives outside of your own district can transform state-wide legislation, repelling corporate funding, running an independent campaign and housing and education inequality in LA. 57:06 - A one-on-one conversation with artist, activist, model and writer Emily Barker about the history of standardized and invisible norms in architecture, ableist design as structural violence and what inspired their most recent exhibition “Built To Scale.” 1:31:00 - Amelian's DJ set begins! Featuring incredible adlibs by NikoTheIkon. Recorded live and sound mixed by audio engineer extraordinaire Margot Padilla. Follow me on IG @TSTAR7 and tell me who to talk to next.

    Beth Pickens - More Money 2020

    Beth Pickens - More Money 2020

    Beth Pickens helps artists. She invented her own job, combining counseling and arts management, and now works as a consultant for artists and arts organizations in L.A. She is also the author of "Your Art Will Save Your Life" and the host of Getting Real About Money workshops. Beth is a Capricorn, like me, and we meet on the first day of Capricorn season for a powerful conversation about working from home, working with other people and working on our relationship to money. LISTEN TO HEAR HOW YOU CAN MAKE MORE MONEY IN 2020. Beth describes how family is the foundation of group psychology and the way workplaces often mirror the family dynamics of each employee. We also discuss coming from families who didn’t self-describe as artistic or feminist and who weren’t highly educated or rich. We talk about Beth’s childhood in the deep Rust Belt, the way attending the opening of the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh impacted her adolescence and growing up adoring Andy Warhol before the mass commercialization of his imagery. I realize I grew up in the aftermath of a “boom and bust” generation and about different kinds of money damage (and getting over the idea that nothing about money can be positive). Beth says rich people have crazy money damage too! We talk about growing up in financially homogeneous neighborhoods (like Beth’s, where the richest family around was comprised of two teachers) and financially dissimilar hometowns (like mine in LA, where heiresses and low-income could all end up in the backseat together). Beth shares one of her own most transformational financial habits and reflects on gauging whether your romantic partner is making you a better artist or not. We also touch on blue ocean strategy and The Babysitter’s Club! Follow Beth - http://www.bethpickens.com/, read her book and consider attending one of her Getting Real with Money workshops later this year!

    Paula Kahn - Running For Office

    Paula Kahn - Running For Office

    New episode of Tierney Talks with Paula Kahn! Paula Graciela Kahn is a congressional candidate currently running to represent California’s 30th District – the San Fernando Valley. Celebrate this “holiday” by listening to a femme against fascism. We talk about the just transition - as in a shift “from an exploitative, extractive, global war economy to a cooperative, regenerative network for local peace economies.” Paula tells me about how volunteering in Tijuana & observing atrocities at the border & in detention centers inspired her to run for office. She calls to shut down the Adelanto Detention Center in San Bernardino & describes her experiences advocating for detained friends in ICE centers. Paula wonders why ICE budgets are increasing when people are dying in ICE facilities, explains the immigration detention & deportation industry & shares how 9/11 & the Iraq War activated ICE. We explore her non-profit Cosmovisiones Ancestrales & the notion of using drugs to support people who are victims of state violence through demobilization, disarmament & reintegration. We discuss the first scholarly article about “cult mushroom” ceremonies, how it fueled psychedelic tourism & the present need to create ecological preserves to protect plant medicine. Paula also imagines the recodification of psychedelics & other indigenous plant medicine by white venture capitalists & Western companies patenting indigenous medicine (a la the legal marijuana industry). We also discuss the deficit of Latinx femmes in Congress & healing as nonlinear. We talk about the housing crisis in the San Fernando Valley & inclusionary zoning. The incumbent candidate, Congressman Brad Sherman, hasn’t done enough in regards to these issues. He’s been in office since 2013 :( She’s sick of trusting strangers to protect her community – please support Paula at the ballot in March! Raise your expectations for who your local rep could be! Send this to someone who votes in the Valley & donate to her campaign via the link in the bio. $5 helps!! More if you’re rich!!! Paula is the most PLUR congressional candidate of all time, promise. Follow her too 3 https://www.paulakahn2020.com/ http://cosmovisiones.org/ https://secure.actblue.com/donate/kahn2020

    April Flores - Sexy Fat Girls

    April Flores - Sexy Fat Girls

    New episode of the podcast featuring April Flores out now! April is a porn performer, model and artist from Los Angeles. She’s the star of Fat Girl, a fine art book that documents 12 years of her erotic art practice with the photographer Carlos Batts. In 2005, she got her start performing in porn with Belladonna and in 2014, she became the first performer to win the AVN Award for BBW Performer of the Year. She’s won a Feminist Porn Award for her work in “Lesbian Curves 3: Soft Girls and Strap Ons” and wrote about beauty and embodiment in Tristan Taormino’s The Feminist Porn Book: The Politics of Producing Pleasure. We talk about learning the term “zaftig” and she clears up my misunderstanding of what a FUPA actually is. She’s the first Tierney Talks guest to have her own masturbator toy and tells us all about the molding process (she’s the first BBW to be molded for such a toy & the Amazon reviews are worth reading!) We talk about entering the porn industry as a hobbyist, weed and body dysmorphia and the plus-size amount of work left to do in the fat acceptance movement! We also talk about fat representation in porn vs mainstream fashion and entertainment, enjoying her exhibitionism and her female fan base. April describes the way making porn fulfills her interests in filmmaking and says her main career motivation is to be visibly naked, fat, f*****g, having fun and getting paid for it. And we’re smoking weed and wearing lingerie the whole time! Available on Apple, Spotify, Google Play, Stitcher, etc Credit and thanks to our engineer and audio producer Margot Padilla, whose band Dis Fantasy made the music you hear at the beginning and end of this episode ("Let Me Love You" and "She Magical."

    Andrea Amez - Summer Products

    Andrea Amez - Summer Products

    Andrea Amez is one of my favorite people to speak to in general, but especially about everything to do with skincare, beauty and wellness. Oddly enough, we didn't discuss any products her first time on the podcast, but today she's back with her favorite hair conditioner, lip balm, body wash, deodorant, body exfoliants, facial peels and more in tow. Find the full list of products discussed here: http://bit.ly/TierneyAmezSummerProducts Amez explains what my “acid mantle” is, how it differs from my skin's “microbiome” and how probiotic skincare impacts them both. She illuminates the thinking behind "vibrational" and "energy-based" products intended for emotional and spiritual results. She shouts out some of her favorite product lines (@aliangeskincare, @agentnateur, @oseamalibu + dozens more), calls herself a “body wash slut" and answers all my questions. Such as: - Should I buy the big bottle of rosewater with glycerin or without? - What's the difference between $6 hyaluronic acid serum and $300 hyaluronic acid serum? - Are these vegan gummies really going to hydrate my skin? - How should I use my new Rose Quartz roller from @chakrubs? - Why are my freckles more visible directly after sun exposure? - Is it bad to love products? Fresh off a trip to Mendocino, I discuss the cannabis tourism industry and wonder about what the next big cannabinoid will be (THC and CBD are 2 / 113). I also talk about William Randolph Hearst printing racist lies about weed in his newspapers because he owned huge timber holdings and paper mills and felt threatened by hemp paper. I hit my @leunebrand vapes and sip @kikoko_hq weed tea until I begin to wonder if I'm saying half the names of these beauty brands right. I describe being in the operating room during a stranger’s Brazilian Butt Lift and the psychological reasons people love picking at their partner's skin too, both based on @wearemel stories.
