    Becoming Poli(Sci)-Amorous: with Ettingermentum

    Becoming Poli(Sci)-Amorous: with Ettingermentum

    Today on the pod we are joined by THE guy who correctly predicted the 2022 election outcomes, Ettingermentum, and he's breaking down what the presidential elections in 2024 will look like. We're so grateful to have Josh on this week to help us understand this crazy system. We're also discussing the modern history of Southern electoral politics and the recent use of anti-trans legislation in attempts to unify the right. As it turns out, anti-trans legislation does NOT bring out more voters. Tune in to this week's episode to learn more! We think you'll leave this conversation feeling slightly more optimistic about the future of American politics.

    Check out Ettingermentum's substack.

Love this - need more! MORE SEASONS for us allies

I listen as soon as it comes ou! More, please. Compassionate and deep interviews. I need to hear these points of view.

I have trans friends and coworkers, but these are just quality interviews and discourse in general.

Upset

I’m not a trans individual but I’ve really been educating myself about the trans community. However, I think Alisa/Issa is pretty privilege because there’s people who actually are struggling or can’t afford to transition who really know they are in the wrong body. I found this very upsetting.

Normal

If it has to be normalized it ain’t normal! Quit encouraging mental illness you perverts
