#200 Annette Simmons and Areva Martin “Authors and Thought Leaders”

Today the show begins with a conversation with Annette Simmons, a keynote speaker, consultant, and author of four books, including The Story Factor, which is listed in The 100 Best Business Books of All Time. She received a business degree from Louisiana State University, went on to spend ten years in Australia in international business, then received an M.Ed. from North Carolina State University, before founded Group Process Consulting in 1996. Her latest book is titled, Drinking from a Different Well: How Women’s Stories Change What Power Means in Action. Learn more at her book’s website. Today Annette shares her thoughts on the different narrative men and women have around power, how women can come to trust their own instinct, how to resist gaslighting, how women can insist on their own narrative and stick to it, why moral emotions are so important and lots more. I read her book cover to cover in about 1 DAY, so I highly recommend!

In the second half of the show I get to speak with Areva Martin, an award-winning civil rights attorney, advocate, social issues commentator, talk show host, and producer. A CNN legal analyst and Harvard Law School graduate, Martin founded Martin & Martin, LLP, a Los Angeles-based civil rights firm, and is the CEO of Butterflly Health, Inc., a mental health technology company. A best-selling author, Martin has dedicated her fourth book, Awakening: Ladies, Leadership, and the Lies We’ve Been Told, to helping women worldwide recognize, own, and assert their limitless power. Today Areva shares some of her own personal story as it relates to gender inequality, what she’s learned by listening to the stories of other women, the lies that women have been told that have held them back, and how to beat a system that’s (still) rigged against women.

Here’s an astrology report for Friday/Saturday’s New Moon! And here’s a link to register for my Virtual New Moon Circle this Friday, Dec. 3rd at 8pm Eastern.

Today’s show was engineered by Ian Seda of Radio Kingston, www.radiokingston.org.

#198 June Millington “From Fanny to Institute for Musical Arts”

Today I have the ultimate honor to share my conversation with June Millington, a Filipino American guitarist, songwriter, producer, educator, actress and writer. She was the co-founder and lead guitarist of the all-female rock band Fanny, which was active from 1970 to 1974. After leaving the band, June went in pursuit of her spiritual path, continued to make music, collaborate, act, write and is the co-founder and artistic director of the Institute for the Musical Arts (IMA) aka the “Magical Queendom” in Goshen, Massachusetts.

The Institute for the Musical Arts was co-founded with partner Ann Hackler in Northern California in 1986 and received its nonprofit status in 1987.  It operated its studio and programs from Bodega, California’s historic Old Creamery until 2001 when property was purchased in Western Massachusetts for a permanent facility. The institute’s nonprofit mission is to support women and girls in music and music-related businesses.  Rooted in the legacy of progressive equal rights movements, IMA’s development is guided by the visions, needs and concerns of women from a diversity of backgrounds and has grown from the need to nourish ourselves and each other. In addition to its summer programs for girls, IMA offers concerts and workshops year-round in support of its nonprofit mission which, unless otherwise noted, are open to the public.

Today June shares about how they are supporting girls at IMA, leaving Fanny, feminism, foremothers, Buddhism, cancer, life lessons and what’s she’s got on the horizon.

Here are the important links for you! IMA and their Summer Programs. Memoir, Land of a Thousand Bridges. And if you want more of the  Fanny story, you can check out where to stream Fanny: The Right to Rock.

You can support IMA by joining in their upcoming November 20th and 27th events, both of which will be livestreamed! And stay tuned for June’s upcoming release, “Snapshots.”

You can check out June’s TEDxTalk, “Rocking the Boat: How Playing Like a Girl Can Change the World.”

Linking here also to Ann Hackler’s TEDx Talk, “Leading from the Kitchen.”

And finally the Go Fund Me for Jean Millington, June’s sister.

Here’s the Full Moon report I read from!

#191 Therese Shechter “My So-Called Selfish Life”

On today’s show I share my conversation with Therese Shechter, award-winning filmmaker and writer, and the founder of the feminist production company Trixie Films.  Her work fuses humor, activism, and personal storytelling to disrupt what’s considered most sacred about womanhood. She is a Canada Council for the Arts grantee for her documentary My So-Called Selfish Life which is having its World Premier this week at the Woodstock Film Festival. The film examines what it means to say no to motherhood in a society that assumes all women want children, and exposes what’s at stake when women are denied the right to control their own reproductive lives. It is the third part of a trilogy which includes her films “How To Lose Your Virginity” (2013) and “I Was A Teenage Feminist” (2005). These documentaries have screened from Rio de Janeiro to Istanbul to Seoul, and her work is in the collections of over 300 universities, non-profits, and libraries. I had the opportunity of a sneak peak at her film and it’s fascinating, thought provoking, informative and entertaining… and this is coming from someone who has struggled to have children yet is STILL trying!

Woodstock Film Festival Showtimes and Locations:

World Premiere: Thursday, September 30 [4:45] PM at Bearsville Theater, Woodstock, NY

Encore Screening: Friday, October 1 [11:00] AM at Orpheum Theatre, Saugerties NY

#183 Nina Isabelle – Artist, Thinker, Observer

Today’s guest is the profoundly talented Nina Isabelle. She is a process based artist working with perception, action, language, and phenomena. Her practice is a method to sort and solve the inconsistencies of language, memory, and form, and she makes paintings, drawings, photographs, video, sculpture, sound, performance and writing as inquiry into how sensory perception functions as the impetus for action, reaction, response, and choice making in art and life.

Her work has been presented at The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts in New York City, The Queens Museum as part of Emergency Index Documentation Discussion, Judson Memorial Church, Grace Exhibition Space, and ABC No Rio in Exile at Bullet Space in NYC with Feminist Art Group, as well as at Para//el Performance Space and The Ear in Brooklyn, NY. Internationally her projects have been presented at Czong Institute for Contemporary Art in Gimpo, South Korea, The Unstitute in Catalunya, Spain, Bangkok Underground Film Festival in Thailand, and NA Gallery in South Korea. Nationally her work has been shown at The San Diego Art Institute, The New School’s exhibition at The Bushwick Collective, Roman Susan in Chicago, IL, and CX Silver Gallery in Brattleboro VT, among others.

In 2018 she founded Three Phase Center for Collaborative Art Research & Building in Stone Ridge, NY where she facilitates, collaborates with, and documents the work of process based conceptual and performance artists. She’s continually motivated to work, present projects, facilitate, and collaborate with artists and idea people of any sort.

Today we talk about her upbringing be tossed in the air lots by acrobats and gymnasts and how her childhood set her up for being unmotivated by external validation or approval. This made for challenges in school, but seems to allowed for a vibrant life where she is guided by what is fun and fulfilling. We discuss some of the pursuits of her art in solving inconsistencies in language, memory and form, how perception is imperfect and malleable and several intersections between her work and thought processes and quantum physics. I try to keep up!

#168 Silvia Federici “Scholar, Teacher, Author and Activist”

Silvia Federici is an Italian and American scholar, teacher, and activist from the radical autonomist feminist Marxist and anarchist tradition. She is a professor emerita and Teaching Fellow at Hofstra University, where she was a social science professor, and she has also worked as a teacher in Nigeria. She was co-founder of the International Feminist Collective, and an organizer with the wages for housework campaign. In 1973, she helped start Wages for Housework groups in the US. In 1975 she published Wages Against Housework, the book most commonly associated with the wages for housework movement. Silvia also co-founded the Committee for Academic Freedom in Africa (CAFA), and was involved with the Midnight Notes Collective. In 1995, she co-founded the Radical Philosophy Association (RPA) anti-death penalty project. She is the author of several important texts including Caliban and the Witch, which we read and discussed during this past month of March. I am truly grateful for her generosity in time to be here with us on today’s show.

Following our reading of Caliban and the Witch, Rakel and I are honored to be able to continue the conversation with the one and only Silvia Federici. She shares generously her thoughts on why this book is still relevant today — because the events are still happening around the globe — and where the movement needs to go — grassroots organization and cooperation of activist groups to force the change to happen. There’s so much richness and value in this conversation. Let us know what you think!

Also super grateful to Rakel Stammer, who introduced me to Silvia’s work and steered the ship during today’s conversation. Here’s the link to Rakel’s art show, opening May 8, 2021, “(s)mother 2.0 care in (a time of) crisis.

P.S. Here’s the Facebook Livestream if you want to watch!

Oh, and here’s the doc Rakel mentioned, Harlan County.

#165 “Caliban and the Witch” Part 5 Book Discussion

Happy Women’s History Month! In collaboration with Women’s History Month Kingston, we bring the discussion of Silvia Federici’s Caliban and the Witch to a close this week, diving into Chapter 5, “Colonization and Christianization.” We went way off text, but had a very meaningful (to me) discussion about some vitally important topics. Sassafras has copies of the book if you want to read and revisit this in more detail. Let us know if you do. We can keep the conversation going…

Here’s Carolita’s event, Goodbye to All That Book Re-Launch + Virtual Celebration, happening on April 13, 2021.

And here’s the link to Rakel’s art show, opening May 8, 2021, “(s)mother 2.0 care in (a time of) crisis.

And here’s New York Caring Majority. Show them some love, get involved/donate, if you want to be a part of the change towards a more equitable and compassionate world. Their work is an integral part of the solution!

Rakel Stammer is an artist and teacher who primarily works in painting and drawing, but also dabbles in sound, installation, collage, writing, photography, printmaking and performance. Her work has been published in several magazines, anthologies and journals across the world and she has exhibited in Denmark, Sweden and the U.S. She was on the show before, pre-COVID in October 2019, talking about her series “The C%#& (C-word) Drawings” completed during a residency at Deer Creek Collective. Rakel speaks publicly and writes about capitalism, art, trauma, dominance and violence, seen through an anti-capitalist, intersectional feminist lens!

Carolita Johnson is a cartoonist (The New Yorker magazine) and illustrator from NYC. She spent 13 years in Paris, France, after graduating from Parson’s School of Design with a degree in Fashion Design. In Paris, she earned a masters degree in Modern Letters and Linguistics, and got some (admittedly very idiosyncratic) chops in pre-doctoral Medieval Anthropology, which turned out to be her gateway drug to cartoons and illustration. She is also a writer, has appeared on HBO and NPR, performed in various esteemed settings, is an alumnus of the O+ Festival, and most recently added teaching via SUNY New Paltz to her list of accomplishments.

See you on MOON-days starting in April!!!

#163 “Caliban and the Witch” Part 3 Book Discussion

Happy Women’s History Month! In collaboration with Women’s History Month Kingston, we continue the discussion of Silvia Federici’s Caliban and the Witch. This week we’re discussing Chapter 3, “The Great Caliban:The Struggle Against the Rebel Body.” In Silvia Federici’s words, “[o]ne of the preconditions for capitalist development was the process that Michel Foucault defined as the ‘disciplining of the body,’ which in my view consisted of an attempt by state and church to transform the individual’s power into labor-power. This chapter examines how this process was conceived and mediated in the philosophical debates of the time, and the strategic interventions which it generated.” Lots of juicy stuff in this one folks! Next week, we dive into Chapter 4, “The Great Witch-Hunt in Europe.” Let us know your thoughts and questions!

Who’s in this conversation?

Rakel Stammer is an artist and teacher who primarily works in painting and drawing, but also dabbles in sound, installation, collage, writing, photography, printmaking and performance.

Here’s the Podcast Beyond The Periphery: Reclaiming The Body Under Contemporary Capitalism w/ Silvia Federici that I referred to.

FEMINIST ACTION! Support NY Caring Majority’s efforts to increase the wages for home care workers. Call Senate and Assembly leadership and let them know that #FairPay4HomeCare is a win-win for all New Yorkers! https://docs.google.com/…/1FAIpQLSfxBCAC…/viewform…

#159 Malebo Sephodi “Miss Behave”

Malebo Sephodi is a South African writer and researcher. With over 6 years corporate and just over 20 years community development experience, Malebo has worked and spoken in various parts of Africa, Europe and the Americas. She has worked with many Schools, NGO’s and the private sector tackling numerous socio-economic projects.

She has been listed by Okay Africa as top 100 women in Africa in 2018 and a Mail and Guardian Top 200 Young People in 2018. She was the recipient of the Fabulous Woman Brave Award in 2018 and a runner up in the Gauteng Legislature Vita Basadi Award. Malebo was also the recipient of the South African Literary Award first-time Published Author in 2018 and is a Wits City Institute Mellon Fellow and recipient of the Wits University Walter and Albertina Sisulu Prize. Her research interests include: Gender, Human Development Economy, Artificial Intelligence Policy, and the Hegemony of Science.

Her debut non-fiction titled Miss Behave published by BlackBird Books (imprint of Jacana Media) was released in May 2017. Dubbed by many readers as “compulsory reading,” Miss Behave tracks Malebo’s journey as a Black Woman in South Africa fighting for autonomy over her life. She addresses issues such as Patriarchy, Sexism, Intersectionality, Body positivity and Economic Quotas. Miss Behave has been long listed for the Sunday Times Alan Paton Non Fiction Prize.

Malebo shares how growing up in a family of activists was the start of her being seen as a pillar in her community and how the pressure to remain that pillar took a toll on her body which eventually led to an awakening of sorts (my language) with respect to self care. She shares how she learned to rest, find pleasure, joy and prioritize self care. Malebo also talks about the role spirituality plays in her personal care as well as her life in general, and how honoring her spirituality is decolonial work. “Science is knowledge, but who defines what that knowledge is.” Malebo has also done a lot of work to end gender based violence, and she shares some of her lessons learned along the way. There are so many nuggets of wisdom in this talk today, grab a cup of tea and enjoy! Here’s her TEDxTalk that I mentioned.

Also as mentioned at the end of the show, here’s where you can find out about IONE’s Dream Festival, happening now! http://www.ministryofmaat.org/dreamfestival.html

#158 Artist Rosalie Frankel “Mirth and Melancholy”

Rosalie Frankel is originally from the Bronx, but has made a home in many fantastic places like Vieques, Puerto Rico and Manhattan, and now calls Kingston her home. She has been making Collage since Kindergarten, setting figures free and featuring them in new stories. The work is an attempted examination of undeniable confusion inherent in the dichotomy between mirth and melancholy. She is exploring the lively stew of relationships as well as emotions. Her art is the vehicle to expose both the glory and struggle of Eros.

Rosalie shares about when she first starting making art, how she’s finally learning to have faith in her work and process now that she’s a bit older, letting go enough so that it doesn’t stop her, not following the rules and how breathing helps her.

I also played a portion of an interview I participated in with Keiko Sono and Brett Barry, Podcasters Talk Podcasts. Check out Keiko’s Intrinsic Podcast all about what makes life worth living. It’s about the innate value of each individual and the fundamental motivation that drives us. What if we could align this value and motivation with our jobs? What if we could support ourselves and our families doing what we are good at and enjoy doing? How would that affect our society? What would such a society look like? These are the questions we’ll be asking in Intrinsic.

New Moon tomorrow! Venus and Jupiter bringing in the LOVE vibration. I’ll be working on a self love affirmation to carry us through my next 11 day practice which you can join in live (7am weekdays/8am weekends) or catch the IGTV on Instagram or follow along and join via YouTube. Starting Friday, Feb. 12th.

Love Yourself and Uplift One Another!
