CW: We discuss self-defense against stalking, sexual assault, and other physical attacks in this episode. We also discuss mental health concerns in both the context of an assailant’s motives and survivors’ struggles post-attack. We are not mental health professionals.
We talk to Caitlin of SEEK + FIND Boston about art’s place in the struggle, why cheap and free entertainment matters, and an upcoming zine on free women’s self-defense classes in the Boston area. We also celebrate the Vernal Equinox by talking about balancing various types of eggs and egg replacers, phallic food, and the beginning of a new year for a different calendar.
