Ep. 204: Rebecca Traister, Part 2 -- #MeToo, Harvey & Sexual Harassment In Our Left Media
Rumble with Michael Moore
Last week, we aired Part 1 of Michael's conversation with author Rebecca Traister about President Biden's first six months in office. Afterwards, Mike and Rebecca ended up in an unplanned, revealing and thoughtful discussion about #MeToo, Harvey Weinstein and sexual harassment in progressive media. Traister has written forcefully on issues of gender, feminism, politics and culture. They discuss how abusers remain in power for so long, why the prison system and locking up cartoon villains will not solve the problem, and the importance of solidarity and unions to confront the entrenched power structure.Rumble Episode 203: Rebecca Traister, Part 1 https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/ep-203-rebecca-traister-part-1/id1490354763?i=1000530362951 The "This American Life" episode on Don Hazen: https://www.thisamericanlife.org/640/transcript Five Women Are Accusing A Top Left-Leaning Media Executive Of Sexually Harassing Them https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/coralewis/don-hazen Rebecca Traister: Inside Andrew Cuomo's Toxic Workplace https://nymag.com/intelligencer/article/andrew-cuomo-misconduct-allegations.html Rebecca's Books: Good and Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women's Anger https://bookshop.org/a/1381/9781501181818 All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation https://bookshop.org/a/1381/9781476716572 Big Girls Don't Cry: The Election That Changed Everything for American Women https://bookshop.org/a/1381/9781439150290 Music in the episode: "If I Ruled The World" - MILCK https://youtu.be/NhHKRvv4JfU 3 Special offers for Rumble listeners: 1) You can get 25% off of Liquid IV when you go to https://www.liquid-iv.com/ and use the code RUMBLE at checkout. 2) Go to https://www.expressvpn.com/rumble to get three extra months free of internet privacy. 3) Get 15% off your Raycon earbud order at BuyRaycon.com/rumble --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/rumble-with-michael-moore/message

Amanpour: Thabo Makgoba, Seth Berkley, Rebecca Traister, Jeh Johnson and Amy Sherald
As the debate over vaccine nationalism continues, countries like India are in the grip of the worst stage of the pandemic and others are forging ahead with vaccine rollout. Anglican Archbishop of Southern Africa Thabo Makgoba and Seth Berkley, the CEO of Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, join Christiane Amanpour to discuss why the G7 must put people before profit and share Covid vaccines. Just two weeks ago, we spoke with Philip Roth's biographer Blake Bailey about his 900-page tome on the late literary giant. But a few days later, troubling reports emerged or rape and grooming. Bailey denies these allegations, but his publisher says it will permanently take the book out of print. Journalist and author Rebecca Traister talks about the need for transparency and accountability in institutions. The Department of Homeland Security announced on Monday it will be conducting a formal review to root out white supremacy and extremism in its ranks. Former Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson speaks to our Walter Isaacson about why this is so significant. And finally, artist Amy Sherald's portrait of Breonna Taylor has been widely acclaimed since it appeared in Vanity Fair and now it's on loan from The Smithsonian in an exhibit in Breonna's hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. She explains what she hopes to achieve through painting the black experience. To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit cnn.com/privacy
#42: Cancel Culture or Accountability? (Rebecca Traister)
The Dr. Junkie Show
Author Rebecca Traister joins me to talk about her book, Good and Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women's Anger. We talk about feminism, cancel-culture (and accountability), the Capitol raid, representation, patriarchy, stereotypes, and how women have been vital to social movement in the US throughout history (even though their stories are often overshadowed by men). We also discuss methods of disempowerment, specifically, how women have been strategically silenced and disempowered in Western Cultures by creating the constant appearance of advancement, while nothing really changes.
Yes, we just had an election that promises to make life better for many women. But our guest this week—New York Magazine writer-at-large Rebecca Traister—is “wary of the feel-good narrative.” She tells host Brittany Packnett Cunningham why we all should be, and gets into what the framing of Kamala Harris's win says about our continued fear of full-grown women. Plus, they discuss whether the activism of 2020 will stick for the long haul—and Brittany brings you the latest Untrending News. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices
