A new ep. of Shameless Talks is here! Hosted by one of our editors, Julia De Laurentiis Johnson, this podcast is an accessory to our print issues and will bring you even more of the smart & fierce discussions you’ve come to expect from the pages of Shameless.

In this episode, we’re talking Politics! And it’s a very special one because it’s our first-ever live episode, a recording of our Politics issue launch where storytellers regaled an audience with their stories of resistance. You’ll hear Lia and Tessa who began We Give Consent, a social media awareness campaign fighting to have the concept of consent included in the official Ontario Sex Ed curriculum; we’ve got Frizz Kid talking about their experience with online bullying and that day they stood up to bully in class(!); we’ve got The Degenderettes discussing gender inclusivity and finding a community that let’s you be yourself; and we’ve got Claire AH, a sex educator, podcaster and matchmaker on her work to krip sex & sex ed.

We’re also on iTunes! Please subscribe. And tell us how we’re doing! You can get us on Twitter @shamelessmag or find Julia @juliadelj or at Happy listening!

Transcript to come.
