The conversation, per the usual, goes into murky, uncharted territory and barely makes it back to the realms of coherence.What does lava, an octopus and bystander intervention have in common? (this isn't a joke but come up with a punch line to that and win a stuffed animal) TUNE IN AND FIND OUT!!!As Zach says in the interview, any time one gets a chance to talk to Shawna you leave that conversation knowing more and being better off for having paid attention.

How To Deal With Sexism And Harassment With Shawna Potter

Riot Doll

Sexism and harassment are two poisons deeply rooted in culture and politics that are yet to be purged by society from its system. Many people still suffer from these disgusting philosophies, particularly minorities. Kimra Luna aims to change our take on this matter by sitting down with the author and front person for War on Women, Shawna Potter. She explores the contents of her book, Making Spaces Safer, which focuses on how to deal with such toxic situations by empowering every space we move around in and the people we mingle with. Shawna also shares the Five D's of Bystander Intervention, as well as some tips for young women who want their voices to be heard.

The Rigs of Dad Prodcast ep 18: Shawna Potter (War on Women)

Rigs of Dad Prodcast

Shawna Potter is a true force on stage as the singer for War On Women, and an awesome friend to chat it up over drinks while off stage!  She's an accomplished singer, guitarist, writer, speaker, dog-whisperer, amp servicer, and much more! We talk about what it's like to be an accomplished artist that is not endorsed by Shure, her new book about making spaces safer (which she wrote without any help from Shure), going from a guitarist/singer to one of the most animated presences on stage without a guitar (or a Shure endorsement), and why she hates the generalization of "punk" in music.  All of this and more brought to you without Shure! If you would like to hear an extended and unedited version of this conversation, with over an hour of extra banter and beyond, check out the Rigs of Dad Patreon page at www.patreon.com/rigsofdad or just download the ap and get it right to your phone! Shawna's book "Making Spaces Safer" is available at https://www.akpress.org/making-spaces-safer-book.html This episode is supported by the fine folks over at  www.gillibus.com www.shearrevival.com and NOT Shure (though it could be...  and it could've been)

Is SHOCK ROCK even relevant in 2020? And is it possible to make money in a metal band anymore?? Featuring Shawna Potter of War On Women

The Pit Presents: LAST WORDS

Marilyn Manson is coming out with a new album soon, which begs the question: Is shock-rock still relevant?? Can anything shock us anymore? Is the dude from TRAPT the Marilyn Manson of today because he pisses people off so bad?? Also, Spencer from Periphery says it's nearly impossible to make money in a metal band these days. Is that true? If not, what does it take to succeed? The LAST WORDS crew, joined by War On Women's Shawna Potter, try and get to the bottom of it.
