Let me tell you a little bit about this video: I wanted to make a series where I sit down and talk with a friend while we try and make each other laugh. Consider this video a pilot of that idea. Tell me what you think about it, whether you want to see more, and what else we should talk about!

SHOW 150: Your Fursona is Stupid

Have you ever noticed how much you can immediately deduce about a person from the animal monstrosity that they use to represent themselves on the Internet? Well, you can! In this episode, Agouti and Aurelina endulge in the worst furry racism as they drink from separate drinking fountains and send old ladies to the back of the bus. Is there a difference between people making fun of furries on the Internet and the combined atrocities of the Holocaust, the Trail of Tears, the Alabama church bombings, and that one genocide that people don’t care about (You know the one)? We posit that there is not. So join us as we mock people for baring their souls and choosing the spiritual totem that makes their dicks the hardest.

The Walking Dead Podcast Episode 55: “Strangers”

After last week’s action extravaganza, “Strangers” is unsurprisingly a much quieter episode of The Walking Dead. Written by comic creator Robert Kirkman, “Strangers” follows the entire group traveling side by side, and introduces us to a new character (the mysterious Father Gabriel played by Seth Gilliam). Joining us this week to discuss the second episode of season five is guest Randy Dankievitch.

H* #37: Why Teachers of Color are Necessary (feat. Shirley)

How do schools and our education system reproduce inequality and teach us lies like the “bootstraps myth” when we all know that as POC we have to work twice as hard to get half as much? How important is mentorship for students of color from teachers of their respective backgrounds? For this episode (Kari is gone for the week), Chuks talks with Shirley (onetoc on tumblr), an Asian American public school teacher, to explore these questions and more.

Christina of Sweden

When Christina of Sweden was born, her parents had been trying to have a male heir for more than five years. During that time, the Queen Consort had given birth to two stillborn babies, and the couple had also lost an infant daughter. So it may have been wishful thinking that led the midwives to joyfully declare that the newborn Christina was a boy. Eventually, her father, King Gustav, decreed that she should have a princely upbringing and become his successor to the throne.

Here’s a link to our notes and research.
