I love podcasts and have many favorites (that I share here). It's a great device to tune out anxiety--replacing the voices in my head with those a lot wittier and more knowledgeable than my own.
In the No is a three part collaborative series between two of my favorite programs: RadioLab, hosts Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich, and The Heart, hosted by Kaitlyn Prest.
In the No is the hard conversation we've all been having about consent in the era of the #MeToo movement. I've had variations of this conversation with fellow survivors, allies, and cis-men who are befuddled, as well as those who are accused and angry. While I might hold a sign that cries to Burn the Patriarchy, I know that it's not simple. There is so much work to be done.
I highly recommend listening to all three parts of In the No. Send it round to your next gathering of friends as a way to voice your own thoughts about consent and the realities that exist around that wonderful ideal.
