BuzzFeed News tech reporter Katie Notopoulos drops by to tell Ana what she learned from watching YouTube star Jake Paul’s educational video series on social influencing, which apparently involves a lot of trickery and grifting. Then, Jemar Tisby of the The Witness joins Ana to discuss the hypocrisy of white Evangelicals who support Donald Trump, which leads to a broader discussion about racism and white supremacy in America.
Rebecca Traister joins Ana to recap the 2018 midterm elections, and the work that led up to them. Their conversation touches on the demographic of White women and their voting patterns, the history of why White women continually vote conservative, and the changes that were made this election to reach out to other marginalized and often disenfranchised communities.
Ana Marie Cox speaks with journalist Eli Saslow and Derek Black about Derek Black’s transformation from white nationalist to antiracist activist. They discuss current news, what Trump means for the rise of white nationalism in everyday life, and mistakes made by the media and within American culture that contributed to the normalization of white supremacy.
On this week’s two part episode, Ana Marie Cox interviews Karamo Brown and Parker Molloy. Karamo and Ana discuss Karamo's work on Queer Eye, mental health, and what it means to be different in today’s society. Parker and Ana talk about the recent memo about legal status of Trans people released by the Trump administration, what identity means to them, and what the term identity politics has come to mean.
Heather Havrilesky joins Ana to talk about her new book, her career, and politics. They discuss what 2016 meant to them both personally and politically, how feminism has changed in the era of Trump and the MeToo Movement, and their hopes for the 2018 midterm elections.
Ana sits down with Disability Rights Activist Alice Wong to discuss what ableism looks like today, how being disabled is perceived, and the responses from the disabled activist community. They also cover how the modern political landscape affects people who are disabled, and what Trump and Kavanaugh mean for healthcare decisions.
