This podcast is recorded on the lands of the Gubbi Gubbi, the Dharug, the Gadigal of Eora nation, and the Dharawal. We pay our respects to elders past and present and acknowledge the elders of tomorrow. This land was stolen and sovereignty was never ceded, Australia owes a debt that can never be repaid and must come to terms with the historic and ongoing genocide of the First Nations. There is no revolution without Treaties.
G’day voters and welcome to the show notes for the sixth episode of 2020; we are 3 White Guys + Guest, a political podcast for a cynical nation.
Last week we covered the end of the Sanders 2020 campaign and briefly touched on the sexual assault allegations against Joe Biden, we figured we were done with coverage of the US election for a couple of months at least. And then further developments in the allegations made by Tara Reade came to light, which has forced many in the Democratic Party to respond, but still no word from Biden.
So we decided to dive back in to look at the allegations, the #MeToo movement, the scourge of male politicians from “a different time”, the early 90s, and consent; as such our plus guest today is award-winning writer and sex educator, author of The Teen Girl’s Guide to Getting Off: Eva Sless.
