The Veil is Thin w/ Candace Marie Looft
It’s All Hallow’s Eve, Mercury is going into retrograde, and California is on fire so thank the stars we have astrologer Candace Marie Looft here to put it all in perspective! She’s got serious thoughts about Instagram astrology and spiritual capitalism plus insights into Beyoncé’s star chart and a horoscope for the United States as a whole. Plus, how can we use spiritual and metaphysical practices to understand chaotic times (and still maintain a healthy skepticism) and what can his horoscope tell us about the President’s mental breakdown?
It’s the witching season and we’re celebrating by going deep into the history of witches and the church and state-inflicted terrors of centuries of witch hunting and witch trials! From the Inquisition to Salem to the unhinged claims of the President today- spoiler! one of these things is not like the others!- what seems like ancient history has direct effects on our lives today. We’ve got ideas about what it means to be the daughters of the women they didn’t burn...

Domestic labor- traditionally feminine and unpaid or undervalued- has increased even as other markers of gender-based equality have (slowly) improved in the United States. Why is this? Why do gender roles and expectations persist so strongly in cis-het households, and for single women? And what are the individual and systemic ways we can work toward more equality? We’re breaking down the ways we fall into the time suck of domestic labor and how we can value and divide it differently.

The Vagina Bible
This week we’re turning to our bible- The Vagina Bible! Dr. Jen Gunter has written a must-have encyclopedia of all things vagina-related- from basic anatomy to the myths and misinformation that are still common, and how education and science can be a source of empowerment and more pleasure for anyone with a vagina!
It’s been almost two years since sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein incited the cultural reckoning of the #metoo movement. Ursula Macfarlane’s documentary Untouchable (streaming on Hulu) and Jodi Kantor and Meghan Tuohey’s new book She Said both provide new information and context on the Weinstein story and what it reveals about patriarchy and power. We’re talking about both this week- wondering what’s changed in the last two years, whether we’ll see consequences, and why cancel culture isn’t a thing.
I love this show so much, and the host is phenomenal. An affirming and smart discussion every single show!
Good convo on leaving neverland doc
