Uhhhhh....Josh Talbot

As much as we agree on the suckiness of Facebook, it led me to THIS.....
I am, even as I type this, listening to you and Josh. LOVE.
Thank you for existing!
I am also a working, surviving, THRIVING artist in this village. Not much comes up about me on the inter web (❤️), but actually Facebook shows some of my work.
Call if you want to hear my views on life as an artist. I’m DOING it.
I’m Live Painting @the Phantom POP-Up Gallery on Higuera during Art After Dark tomorrow if you want to witness my shenanigans.

A bit of feedback.

As a podcast nerd myself, and a SLO native, I normally enjoy this podcast. However, I was a bit disappointed with your most recent interview when speaking about catcalling and the patriarchy. This is a real issue that many women deal with daily. It isn’t only a nuisance, it’s a threat to our safety. It is not a compliment. And yes, it is certainly is a symptom of the patriarch at work. The patriarchy manifests itself deep into society, and this is just one form of it. While it may seem “harmless” to some, it is just another way of degrading women to feel as though they are objects for viewing pleasure. Chris, you mentioned you often see women coming up with mean comebacks towards harassers online. You know what? We have every right to be mad. We create those comebacks because in the moment we are so distressed and caught off guard that we are left dumbfounded and silent. And if we stand up for ourselves in the moment, it puts our safety at risk. So those comebacks you mention? It’s a way of taking our power back. Keep your privilege in check. Please keep in mind that most of your guests are from a small town, and sometimes their views can reflect that. Involving people with diverse backgrounds may do this podcast some good. Bring others to the table so that we can hear their story.
