This week on Popaganda, we bring you three stories of change.
First, singer Amelia Meath (of Sylvan Esso) talks about bringing a human sound to electronica. Then, Collectors Weekly associate editor Lisa Hix walks us through the changing gender dynamics of the comics industry over the past 120 years. We end the show with a conversation about transgender representation in pop culture, with Equity Foundation Executive Director Karol Collymore talking to two transgender community leaders who grew up in very different decades.
