It’s time once again for another installment of The Podunk Polymath Podcast! This week in the pre-ramble, I speak about more Trump shenanigans, namely his button measuring contest with North Korea, the release of a new book about the unmitigated disaster that is the Trump administration, and finally an op-ed in the New York Times by the organization that released the Steele dossier. All in all, things are looking pretty bad for Our Orange Overlord, though I daresay Congressional Republicans will prevent any substantive charges from touching Trump.
On the palaver this week, I talk to one of the co-hosts of Brainstorm Podcast, Angela Reddekopp. We have a frank and in-depth discussion about the origins of the #metoo movement, its effects both positive and negative, the backlash, and what we can do as individuals to keep the conversation going, most especially having men talking and doing something to monitor and modify their behavior as well as other men. It’s not always an easy discussion, but it’s one that is vitally important if we are serious about changing this culture of seeing women as property and dangerously toxic masculinity.
