In this episode we’re joined by Kat Dodds who shares one of the latest performative pieces by neoliberal daddy Justin Trudeau. Couldn’t even finish the gig.
Check out The Corporation, and now The New Corporation — the unfortunately necessary sequel.
Why are Kat and her colleagues suing Twitter and the Canadian government? As we like to do, we talk about the need to democratize social media, and we think about the opportunity to build power in the Movement through these tools (and new ones). How can we make it so that every person who wants to change the world can do so, and not just be a “clicker” behind a screen?
And we know you’ve missed it — Shelly is back with the Twitter roundup to talk about the feminist author to TERF pipeline. And just FYI – we can’t believe we have to say it but no one is saying you’re not allowed to say “woman”.

agitated. is a podcast for those who care deeply and are mad as hell. Education and inspiration to get you agitated toward action for a world that centralizes love and justice. Antics included.
Lots of us are feeling distrustful, and disillusioned — for good reason — and are looking for a down to Earth and informed analysis of what’s happening in our world that won’t leave us naive to the real deal, or feeling nihilistic and hopeless. Agitated is a show about systems, policy, history, and law and how they create and reflect culture.
Hosted by Jessica Munger, Shelly Williams, Milly Harmon and Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap — four femme friends and agitators who explore the intersections of culture, social movements, law, and politics all while caring deeply but not taking themselves too seriously. Educational. Inspirational. Actionable.
