    For the UK: An Army of Lovers

    I'm back! And I'm sending love to everyone facing the horrible election results in the UK, in the form of a rerun of the episode I ran right after Trump was elected. It's about why pleasure isn't optional, even in these worst of times - it's a key ingredient in both our humanity and our political resistance. Let historian Hanne Blank explain as she talks with Jaclyn about what she learned during the 80s AIDS crisis, the importance of marshmallows when the world is on fire, and why an old slogan from a 1960s French Art movement should be our mantra right now.
