It’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.

The City of Boston wrote an official announcement about hiring me as the Station Manager for WBCA 102.9FM. Thanks to Mayor Walsh for the kind words. You can read it here.
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.
Back in August I had the wonderful opportunity to tour Jennifer Waits of Radio Survivor around KAOS. You can check out her write up and get an inside look at KAOS here.
My first official book chapter has been published!
It’s entitled “Social Justice and LGBTQ Communities in the Digital Age: Creating Virtual and Social Affinity Spaces through Media Literacy” (lenghty, I know) and can be found in Media Education for a Digital Generation.
You can purchase the book from Routledge here as well as Amazon here.
