This episode is the beginning of a mini-cluster or mini-arc that will conclude season three of Secret Feminist Agenda. The coming episodes will focus on other feminist podcasters and/or public scholars, starting with this week’s incredible guest, Jimanekia Eborn, creator and host of the podcast Trauma Queen. We talk about podcasting, sex education, respecting your guests, paying artists, and a whole lot more. Actually, we mostly talk about the silent meditation retreat Jimanekia was about to go on, which I found completely terrifying. It’s a real emotional journey. And here are some links!
- I refer to a conversation that I was pretty sure I heard on Call Your Girlfriend, and I was right! Specifically this episode, specifically the conversation with Esmé Weijun Wang.
- That part where Jimanekia is talking about Jessamyn and I get really excited? That’s Jessamyn Stanley, iconic body positive yoga activist and educator. You can hear her episode of Trauma Queen here.
- In case you missed it, the conversation I reference about consent-based interviewing styles is from Episode 3.2 Buffy Sainte-Marie and Music Journalism with Andrea Warner
- Finally, the podcasts Jimanekia recommends are The Read, The Dollop, The Quietest Revolution, American Sex, Small Doses with Amanda Seales, and of course Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversations.
The podcast theme song is “Mesh Shirt” by Mom Jeans off their album “Chub Rub.” Listen to the whole album here or learn more about them here. Jimanekia’s theme song is “Pursuit of Happyness” by Kid Cudi.
Secret Feminist Agenda is recorded and produced by Hannah McGregor on the traditional and unceded territories of the Squamish, Musqueam, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.
