A little delayed, but here’s the article from The Atlantic that I got a lot of the info for 015: Subaru.
“People joke about lesbians’ affinity for Subarus, but what’s often forgotten is that Subaru actively decided to cultivate its image as a car for lesbians.”
If you want to learn more about Pride and Stonewall, here are the sources I referenced in the Gay Pride episode:
- First-hand accounts of Stonewall in this Democracy Now video
- Award-winning documentary about Pride around the world
- Good ol’ fashioned Wikipedia (don’t judge, this podcast isn’t a history term paper)
Step 1 – Find some skin toned color knee high socks in a stretchy fabric. I suggest the ones that aren’t super pale, and aren’t super black.
Step 2 – Get some stuffing!
NOTE: In the podcast I call this “quilter’s batting” THIS IS INCORRECT. You want the stuff that is loose and not in a roll. It is often called stuffing or fill.
Step 3 – Fill the sock to your desired girth, and tie at the top. I used a clear plastic hair tie.
Start slappin’ your friends!
Good news! I’m not sexist. At least, not this time.
There have been studies that show that men are scientifically better at directions than men. But I was a little simplistic in my explanation. According to an article in Science Daily: “‘In simple terms, women are faster at finding things in the house, and men are faster at finding the house,’ Pintzka says.”
Also, the theory that there’s iron in men’s noses that helps them with directions doesn’t seem to be true at all, based on this article. But hey, I’m still not sexist.
Check out the NYT opinion piece that I got some of my information from for the Safe Space episode.
“But the notion that ticklish conversations must be scrubbed clean of controversy has a way of leaking out and spreading. Once you designate some spaces as safe, you imply that the rest are unsafe. It follows that they should be made safer.”
Here’s the Guardian article I used for most of the info I talked about when telling the story of John Amaechi in Episode 002. Among the things I left out is Amaechi talking about his relationship with his father, who left when he was young.
Here’s the study I talk about in Episode 001 about how more men than I thought are using hookup apps to find dates and relationships. The original study is by GrabHim.net (not GrabHim.org, which I incorrectly cited in the episode). But GrabHim is kinda NSFW, so I wouldn’t go there on a work computer.
