Speak Like a Girl: A Podcast with Megan Falley and Olivia Gatwood

I am so pleased to share this podcast interview that I recorded with Megan Falley and Olivia Gatwood about their interactive feminist spoken word poetry show, Speak Like a Girl. Megan and Olivia also performed two of their incredible poems on the podcast, which was so cool! We discussed poetics and politics; their amazing work speaking out about rape culture; reclaiming  ‘girl’ as a powerful subject position from which to speak and act, and so much more. Thanks to Megan and Olivia for their insight, wisdom, and wonderful words. It was a pleasure to speak with you! x
