    Love the Job: Finding the Labor We Love

    Love the Job: Finding the Labor We Love

    with bell hooks' guidance, adrienne and Autumn trace the conditions that leave us hopeless and despairing at work, and look at what becomes possible when we bring love to our labor, regardless of the conditions. The sisters describe their own journeys into doing what they love to do, and discuss the importance of giving ourselves permission to be in love with our work.

    Special thanks to Wren for their Sovereignty Hymn, follow them here!

    A Prayer For Our Bodies

    A Prayer For Our Bodies

    won't you celebrate with me - by Lucille Clifton

    won't you celebrate with me

    what i have shaped into

    a kind of life? i had no model.

    born in babylon

    both nonwhite and woman

    what did i see to be except myself?

    i made it up

    here on this bridge between

    starshine and clay,

    my one hand holding tight

    my other hand; come celebrate

    with me that everyday

    something has tried to kill me

    and has failed.

Learning to be free… together

I’m just sorry I’m late to the show. This podcast has got me into podcasts as a virtual hangout with wisdom, pleasure, laughter and learning.

Such a beautiful show

How to survive the end of the world is incredible. It’s simultaneously heartbreaking, life affirming, and wonderful. This podcast couldn’t be more timely but honestly gives me hope as to how the world could be. The interviews are so thoughtful and well considered. Having lived with chronic illness the podcast also opened my eyes to so many approaches to illness and our bodies. I honestly couldn’t be more thankful for the Brown sisters’ generosity, time, knowledge, and sharing experiences, stories and kindness. Thankyou so much for putting this out into the world.

Life changing

This podcast is so inspiring, grounding and joyful. It also contains deep and cutting edge wisdom that social movement and social justice loving people need to move through our current blocks and move forward towards liberating ourselves, our families and communities, and our world.
