In discussion with organizers Paige McCay and Charley James, we touched on topics such as; how the structures of the service industry lends its hand to exploitation, the importa ..read more

For this episode I am joined by author and podcast host Patrick Farnsworth.

After a long and much needed hiatus - we are back ! It has been a 8-10 week stretch of rest (due to an urgent and fairly traumatizing medical emergency with my dog)  and necessary personal reorientation of which I give a good shed of light to in this episode. I practice some long term rest that allowed my the particular experience of being between vanishing and reappearing, and even more so the particular space in which I can ask my self where are the parts of me that have been left behind and how may we nourish them back?

I am joined today by Nashville musician, producer, and writer, Thad Kopec.  In his own words, Thad is a man who is “endlessly tinkering”. Thad, by all definitions (even though there aren’t any) is a space- maker. Inspired by magical realism + religious imagery and then partnered with his observational writing style and expansive production-any listener of his music is left feeling both drawn to themselves and the greater environment they inhabit.  In this conversation Thad and I discuss his beginnings of creating music, how music is a tool to expand our understandings of reality, the ..read more

Lagnajita Mukhopahdyay has joined me to kick off Season 3 of the podcast! First and foremost, it is my and Lagnajita's desire that this conversation holds a safe space and a space of connection to any and all BIPOC who have found themselves within the duality of their lived experiences-our liberation is bound in each other, always. If this name rings a bell, it's because she was the very first writer to be featured on The Liberation Podcast website. Today,  however, she joins me in conversation  to give us a closer glimpse into her story as a person of a diasporic history and how i ..read more
