The second half of this week's episode is the premier of part 2 of our radio documentary series 'I'm A Sex Worker'. As a final project for Dr. Mary Shearman's GSWS 320: Sex Work - local issues in a global context, class, Caroline Doerksen, Micaela Evans, Carol Leung, Madi Pomreinke and Xizi Wang produced the radio documentary series 'I'm A Sex Woker'.

Today is National Aboriginal Day and we have a very special guest in studio. Maddi is a part of the Blackfoot Confederacy and is currently studying Gender Studies and Communications. She is very active in advocating for Indigenous Voices. She holds close to her heart issues such as Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, Two Spirited Indigenous People, and Indigenous Feminism. She is co-creator and publisher of a Zine called I AM Indigenous Alternative Media, to raise awareness to these issues since they are hardly recognized. She also has set goals of creating documentaries in the future that are directed towards these issues as well as other issues that intersect with the BIPOC communities to raise awareness.

This week on IntraVenus we interviewed Reema Faris. Reema is a PhD student in the department of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies at Simon Fraser University, where she studies the relevance of (mis)conceptions of feminism as they operate in popular culture. Her question is “whether the consumer-celebrity foundation of North American popular culture has rendered the concept of feminism obsolete even though the need to advocate for social justice has not abated.” 

Make sure to follow her twitter @rmfarrisSFU

Enjoy!
