We recorded this episode the same day as the Charlottesville attacks and, boy, could you tell. We have no patience this week for racism, rape culture and body hatred. (Or for checking our own audio, apparently. Sorry, yo.)

We funnel that frustration into a discussion of Roxane’s Gay Hunger. Listen in as we talk (and try to deal with) rape culture, harmful reality TV shows and America’s overall wretchedness in 2017.

(Note: While we don’t go into detail, we do discuss the themes raised in this book, including rape and sexual violence against children. If needed, listen with care.)

Don’t forget to join us and Mocha Girls Read at 6 p.m. PDT/8 p.m. CDT Saturday, Aug. 19. We’re celebrating our birthday with a live tweet of the first two episodes of “Queen Sugar.” Grab your wine, find us on Twitter at @blackchicklit and use the hashtag #BCLChat to join in!
