Backtalk: We Made It Through 2017

Pour yourself a sweet drink because we made it through 2017! The year that felt like a decade with the inauguration of 45, no gun reform in sight, attacks on marginalized communities through policies, the normalization of supremacists, and, of course, the Weinstein effect. But we made it through because we have one another and we believe in the possibility of real concrete change. On this episode, Dahlia and Amy share their pop culture faves that got them through this year from Latinx pop music and the TV series based on Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale and Alias Grace to the November elections and pro-athletes taking a stand by taking a knee. We have hope, power in numbers, and we’re ready for 2018 for more inspiring pop culture and for invites to impeachment parties. Don’t let the bastards grind you down.
