Backtalk: Believe Women & Just Say No to Normalizing Nazis

Ya’ll, it’s finally December. 2017 is nearing an end and the outrageous news cycle keeps churning. This week, Dahlia and Amy talk about the latest attempt by conservative “infiltration” group Project Veritas to discredit the Washington Post for covering the sexual abuse allegations against Alabama candidate for the Senate Roy Moore and how this undermines the true stories of survivors. Lena Dunham didn’t need to get involved either, but she “naively” thought it was a good idea to release a statement in support of her friend and former Girls writer and accused sexual assaulter, Murray Miller. Then they dig into the latest shitshow that is a a New York Times profile of a Nazi and how it fails to reveal anything behind the pathology of white supremacy while normalizing neighborly hate.

On each episode, we share one thing we saw, read, and heard this week. 

WATCH: Netflix’s The Incredible Jessica James is a nice low-key, rom-commy movie about an emerging playwright just trying to make it in NYC, starring Jessica Williams of 2 Dope Queens podcast. 

READ: Amy has enjoyed the 1992 short story collection by Randall Kenan, Let the Dead Bury Their Dead, exploring the South through the lens of queerness and the fantastical.  

LISTEN: Allie X’s “Casanova” is the poppy track Dahlia listened to approximately 50 times in a row.
