Owning our identity, spoonie theory, mobility devices, and forging online friendship with Kat Inokai
In this episode I talk with Kat Inokai about the things we are doing to take active ownership of our own identities. Kat talks about spoonie theory and the impact it has had on her life, about the Alinker mobility device she has been using, and both of us talk about the mental health challenges we have faced throughout our lives and how this podcast has had to take place over the course of 10 days because of that. Kat inokai is Bumpandhustle on Instagram and the internets and is one of my favourite people in the world even though I’ve only had the opportunity to talk to her a few times before. In weird times like these it’s a really great reminder for me that we’re lucky to have access to the lives of people like Kat who share their wisdom with us daily. She also seems to have a really rad family which is no surprise given the geeky cool parenting inspiration they have.

Creating spaces for men for feminist learning and making mistakes with Erynn Brook
I have followed Erynn on Twitter for a while now and have always been amazed by the time she takes to educate others on very complex topics through her (what I consider) famous threads. Her "Ask a Feminist" segment offers a great look into the ways we can change and how we need to be willing to make mistakes, and learn from them, if we are going to truly change. We also talk about how these spaces can be created for people and how she has worked to create and navigate these spaces and how the same can be done for men willing to explore and learn more about masculinity and how their actions impact those around them.
