This week we delve into the mire that is the Aziz Ansari story, but instead of talking about Aziz and his courting rituals, we are going to talk about what it represents in the larger discussion of #MeToo, #TimesUp, rape culture and consent. We are joined by Shameela Keshavjee once again, and over the course of two episodes we have a deep dive discussion about sexual assault, the journey from victim to survivor, the impact and need for having this discussion, and why it is important now and for the future of feminism for us to be willing to listen and consider different perspectives.
TRIGGER WARNING: WE ACTUALLY HAD TO TAKE ‘TRIGGER BREAKS’ DURING RECORDING AND ENCOURAGE YOU TO DO SO AS WELL.

This episode was a beast to research and record, thank you for listening.
