I’ve been a bit light on the blogging this week. My energy level is pretty good, but most of my time has gone into podcast editing and guesting on other podcasts. I guess I’m a podcaster? That doesn’t sound quite right, but I’ll keep trying to figure it out.

This week on Systematic, my guest was Jared Rodriguez, an assistant professor at the University of Alabama, teaching in the department of gender and race studies. It was his second appearance, and a timely one to discuss racism in the context of current events. Conversations with Jared are always enlightening, and I love his energy.

Over on the Overtired, Christina and I recorded unexpectedly early, which meant even more off-script than usual. It turns out that, given no prompts or bullet points, we do exactly what we always do… nerd out about mental health and mass media. I do enjoy our shared love of television. My mom said no good would come from hours of watching the boob-tube, but I’m trying to make the best of it.

Find all the episodes at systematicpod.com and overtiredpod.com, and be sure to subscribe! My ability to keep the shows going is dependent on my ability to secure advertisers, which is in turn dependent on subscriber numbers. Getting yourself counted in my download stats (and maybe checking out the sponsors now and then) is all you have to do to support either or both shows!
