108. Gas Truck Pt II, with Jackson Bird & Andrew McDonald

The Grade Cricketer

This week we discuss the art of the Mankad: what’s the best way to celebrate ruining someone’s weekend? The BBL finals are finally here, but are we excited about the big dance, or suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome? Meanwhile, New Zealand’s U19’s team are cheerfully carrying opponents off the field while ours are sledging Indian blokes on Instagram; seems like the future is in good hands. But what’s the “right kind” of youth indiscretion?
Jackson Bird joins us to talk about red ball/white ball social dynamics, BBL contract chat, and bowling on Australia’s worst fucking pitch (MCG), before Budgy Smuggler CEO Adam Linforth comes into the studio to give a live performance review of TGC’s ad reads, and reminisces about captaining former school mate Jackson Bird’s cricket team to victory. We also squeeze in a chat with future Australian coach Andrew McDonald while struggling to compose ourselves over his dulcet baritone register.
And #AskTGC tackles a range of psychological issues, including more dream analysis (submitted by the wife of a TGC host), the hidden meaning behind wearing an official test playing shirt in public, and whether we did really win the Ashes after all?
As always, cheers to Budgy Smuggler for their ongoing support of the cast.

15.2: Sorting It Out: J.K. Rowling, transphobia, and what just happened to our community (with Jackson Bird)

PotterCast: The Harry Potter podcast since 2005
Episode artwork
Read more

Welcome to a very special episode of PotterCast!

This week, J.K. Rowling angered and saddened many fans when she came out in support of a woman whose company had not renewed her employment contract because she refused to recognize the legally protected rights of trans people. In coming back from a months-long Twitter hiatus, J.K. Rowling mischaracterized the facts of the case in support of a dangerous and unscientific movement that invalidates the trans experience, and in doing so flies in the face of medical consensus worldwide.

Her comments also confused a lot of fans who are not fully familiar with the issues at stake, or cannot understand how someone whose book series is so vehemently about tolerance can express support for a woman whose views invalidate so many people's existences. That's why in this episode, we are going over it all.

Jackson Bird, longtime friend of the podcast and of Leaky, as well as author, trans activist and educator, and expert Waffler, joins us to explain and process what this means for Harry Potter fans. We discuss:

  • What actually happened
  • What J.K. Rowling said versus what happened to the woman in question, Maya Forstater
  • Why many fans saw this coming
  • What to do now that the creator of the series we love so dearly has taken this stance
  • How to support trans and non-binary communities
  • How we as fans are feeling about all of this
  • What to do now, especially since we still love this community

We hope you'll listen and share. Here are some helpful resources, including things we mention in the show:

153. ’The Way to Happiness’ w/ Jackson Bird

Tomefoolery
Episode artwork
Read more
Codex is joined by writer and YouTuber Jackson Bird to find their own… way to happiness. You can find the book in Glendale or Canada.   The Way to Happiness by Lafayette Ronald Hubbard   SYNOPSIS: The choice of actions and decisions requires skill and wisdom, not just self-interest or just group interest. Containing 21 precepts, The Way to Happiness helps guide one in those choices encountered in life. This might be the first nonreligious moral code based wholly on common sense.   FULL DESCRIPTION:  True joy and happiness are valuable. If one does not survive, no joy and no happiness are obtainable. Trying to survive in a chaotic, dishonest and generally immoral society is difficult. Any individual or group seeks to obtain from life what pleasure and freedom from pain that they can. Your own survival can be threatened by the bad actions of others around you. Your own happiness can be turned to tragedy and sorrow by the dishonesty and misconduct of others. I am sure you can think of instances of this actually happening. Such wrongs reduce one's survival and impair one's happiness. You are important to other people. You are listened to. You can influence others. The happiness or unhappiness of others you could name is important to you. Without too much trouble, using this book, you can help them survive and lead happier lives. While no one can guarantee that anyone else can be happy, their chances of survival and happiness can be improved. And with theirs, yours will be. It is in your power to point the way to a less dangerous and happier life.     SHOW NOTES:    Previous Episodes: 71. 'Managing a Dental Practice: The Genghis Khan Way' w/ Jackson Bird & Mara Wilson 128. ‘Shut Up!' w/ Jackson Bird   Currently Reading: ‘Game of Thrones’ by George RR Martin ‘Out of Salem’ by Hal Schrieve   Topics: “you are well within your rights to insist that people bathe regularly and wash their hands"   Follow TOMEFOOLERY for information about upcoming episodes & books: @Tomefoolery and Facebook.com/Tomefoolery.

The Advocates Podcast
Episode artwork
Read more
On the latest episode of The Advocates podcast, the show dedicated to LGBTQ issues across generations, transgender YouTube creator and LGBT activist Jackson Bird joins co-hosts Tracy E. Gilchrist and Jessie Earl. Bird was known for his past work with the Harry Potter Alliance, a nonprofit that uses fandoms to help create social change. He was awarded the Social Media Warrior Who Helped Restore Our Faith by MTV in 2016. He also recently won the Turner Visionary Grant from the GLADD Rising Stars Grant Program to help fund the second season of his transgender-focused series Transmission.

On The Advocates, Jackson talks about coming out as transgender after having gained a following on YouTube, how he hopes to share transgender stories with cisgender listeners, as well as what it was liking gaining male privilege as a trans man. For hot topics, Tracy and Jessie discuss self-care following the recent Brett Kavanaugh confirmation, Nicole Maines premiere as the first live-action transgender superhero on Supergirl, and Tracy's recent Q&A with Boy Erased author Garrard Conley.

128. ‘Shut Up!' w/ Jackson Bird

Tomefoolery
Episode artwork

Cody is joined by youtuber and activist Jackson Bird to get to the bottom of the world’s largest and most obvious library pornography crime ring. You can find your copy of the book online and at your local library… OR CAN YOU.   ‘Shut Up!: The Bizarre War that One Public Library Waged Against the First Amendment' by Megan Fox and Kevin DuJan   What bad things could possibly be happening in your local public library? In SHUT UP! The Bizarre War that One Public Library Waged Against the First Amendment, citizen sleuths Megan Fox and Kevin DuJan expose the pattern of censorship, intimidation, harassment, bullying, and retaliation that the Orland Park Public Library engaged in (with help from the American Library Association (ALA), the Orland Park Police, and the Village of Orland Park) to chill free speech, trample civil rights, destroy a safe space, stifle debate, and frighten away critics. This one wayward public library in the affluent Chicago suburbs had for years willfully covered up dangers to children and unreported crimes…and its staff and library board trustees used every dirty trick they could think of (including weaponizing the police and engaging in lawfare with a SLAPP suit) to silence parents and patrons who complained about sexual activity, a hostile work environment, and rampant spending waste in a spare-no-expense public building with all the bells and whistles (but little accountability for public employees who blatantly ignored Illinois state library and transparency laws). The library committed itself to shutting up Fox & DuJan at all costs, in what became a war of proxy between the lobbyists of the ALA's Office for Intellectual Freedom and the rights of citizens to petition government bodies for change and redress of grievances. A public library that insisted men have a First Amendment right to sexually arouse themselves in a building full of children became obsessed with eradicating the public’s First Amendment right to address and correct dangers to children in the one place that everyone always assumed was safe for kids: the local public library. This is the story of how a suburban Chicago scandal became so outrageous that it made national headlines (and even ended up on Saturday Night Live).   Show Notes: Previous Episode:  71. 'Managing a Dental Practice: The Genghis Khan Way' w/ Jackson Bird & Mara Wilson   Currently Reading: ‘Transgender History (2nd Edition)’ by Susan Stryker ‘My Life in Orange’ by Tim Guest   Topics: Civil servants, Gay Republicans, men’s rights activism, Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln, empathy, projection, memory, leaping to conclusions, flat-earther mentality, librarians who rock, humanity, p0rnspiracy!   Follow TOMEFOOLERY for information about upcoming episodes & books: @Tomefoolery and Facebook.com/Tomefoolery.
