Burst Your Bubble Podcast

BYB Logo Color Fill for card copyIt’s been a long time in the making, but I finally launched my podcast today!

Burst Your Bubble looks at -isms and -phobias in pop culture – like racism in music, homophobia in a TV show, or sexism in a movie – and puts it all in a historical and cultural context.

Announcement time! Tomorrow I’ll be starting my new job as Station Manager at WBCA, a new low power FM in Boston! I’m super excited that that I get to continue with community radio and youth media and that I get to keep filling my days with radio.

PCA/ACA Conference

unnamed

Yesterday I presented at the Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association National Conference! My presentation was titled “Burst Your Bubble: A Podcast that Looks at -isms and phobias in Popular Culture.”

Burst Your Bubble is a podcast that I am working on. It explores how -isms and -phobias like racism, sexism, and homophobia are intertwined within popular culture. The podcast discusses these issues in media – from music and movies to comics and games – dissecting how stereotypes and ignorance seep into our everyday lives.

If that sounds interesting to you, the website is up, and there will be more updates there soon! It’s burstyourbubblepodcast.com.
