Contributor Matt Ruby speaks with Selena Coppock, author of the book New Rules For Blondes, and a standup comedian whose latest album is called Seen Better Days. They discuss her experience in publishing, as well as feminism and politics.
Also, Jacqueline Soller and J. McVay discuss the newly released movie, Leave No Trace, directed by Debra Granik and starring Ben Foster and Thomasin McKenzie.
Along the way, we’ll also hear from Radio Dispatch’s John Knefel with his take on the Supreme Court’s recent decision on gerrymandering and how it could affect both the 2018 and 2020 elections; we’ll hear from a woman named Corey about how studying theater taught her to truly connect with people; and we’ll take an exclusive early listen to a performance by LANZ, from an episode of BTR Live Studio set to be released next week.
Music composed by and show edited by Hansdale Hsu.
