We’re digging into all the -isms in this episode, y’all. We read Such a Fun Age, by Kiley Reid, which takes a sharp look at racism, classism and all the ways they can fuck up our lives.
We read as Emira struggles to manage two flavors of problematic white people: her overcompensating, liberal #girlboss boss and her wanna-be-down love interest. They’re both a mess and we dislike them both! Listen in for a discussion on the insidiousness of microagressions, the cult of motherhood and how #ZaraWasRight.
