EP 86: Who is the working-class? by Feminist Killjoys, PhD published on 2018-03-06T11:40:23Z Content Note: Discussion of car accident-related death of a student Tech Note: We are working on the echo thing that's happening! echo-free audio coming asap! Today we discuss the complex definition of working-class and our own complex experiences with class-transitioning. We discuss historical understandings of class, how neoliberalism has shifted that, ways that the system keeps the poor poor and the rich rich, and much more. We share a lot of personal stories, so it's a pretty vulnerable episode, and we appreciate you all for being a community that makes us feel safe to share our truths. In addition, Melody shares a story about losing a student to a car accident, so do note that discussion in the time stamp if you think it might be difficult. *** Check-ins through 9:20 Discussion of death of a student from 9:30 to 20 min Class discussion 20 - 62 min *** Intro: "Top Floor" GRRRL PRTY Outro: "9 to 5" Dolly Parton (short clip) *** Subscribe on iTunes & leave a review!
