#8 We Are All Hypocrites
Hypocrisy, contradiction, and change are the themes of the day in this episode of Snake Oil. Benzi and Juno discuss how they will be judged as hypocrites for the changing perspectives that they share on this podcast over time. They also discuss their different approaches to dealing with COVID19 and how that intersects with their relationship anarchy praxis and rejection or acceptance of relationship rules (policing, autonomy, consent), using “can’t” language vs. the language of agency, reliability and commitment (or lack thereof) in showing up for others, self-sacrifice and social justice, pandemic psychedelic trip experiences, their thoughts on a recent conflict fishbowl, and much much more.

#7 Social Justice, Relationships, and Human Value
This is a guest episode with our friends Clara and John that we recorded almost a year ago. We talk about our differing views on displaying intimacy and affection in public, the politics of relating, social justice, individualism, the limits of empathy, and lots more.Note that because this was recorded a year ago, some of our views on these things may have changed since then. Episodes from our podcast are not accurate representations of our opinions throughout time, because we change and grow. This episode is still very valuable to us in our exploration of these concepts.
