An all-female politics podcast aims to give women a bigger voice at the grassroots progressive movement

Want be startin somethin

Girls were in the vanguard of the grassroots progressive movement in 2016 and kicked off the resistance to Donald Trump using the womens parade in January.

But some feel that girls arent getting exactly the identical airtime as guys in the movement. Thats about to change with the launching of Season of the Bitch an all-female innovative podcast.

It came around when Amber Taylor, a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, and others had been lamenting the dearth of girls on some leftwing podcasts.

The majority of them are hosted by guys, Taylor told the Guardian. If there’s a girl its often just one girl, and you dont hear her as much through the episode.

The first episode is due to launch on Friday 1 September, and Season of the Bitch will operate every Friday thereafter. On the schedule for the podcasts introduction: Were going to talk about the demand for the feminist perspective in the politics of the left, Taylor said.

Airbn-begone

Airbnb is deactivating the accounts of individuals attempting to attend a white supremacist rally, Buzzfeed reported this week.

The home-sharing site has been conducting background checks on individuals attempting to make reservations round the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, this weekend. From Buzzfeed:

Airbnb stated in a statement to BuzzFeed News it established community principles in 2016 that make good on our mission of belonging and that those who are members of the Airbnb community accept individuals irrespective of their race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, handicap, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, or age.

The Airbnb Community Commitment is signed by all people using the service, Airbnb stated, and the organization is removing individuals from the stage who are antithetical to the coverage. They added that they could find these users who violate the coverage through our background check and the input of our neighborhood.

The white supremacist rally, which has been encouraged by the alt-right figurehead Richard Spencer, amongst others, is due to take place on Saturday. Protests are planned.

Its probably to do with the manifesto written by the Google software engineer James Damore. The document, which was published internally in the company, railed against diversity and inclusion initiatives. Damore was fired on Monday.

Working-class individuals have been deserting the Democratic party for a long time, writes Thomas Frank on our site. But despite some wishy-washy terminology and doubts regarding Democrats actual commitment to a more liberal agenda the partys new manifesto, A Better Deal, does provide some hope by inviting Democrats to look in the mirror, ” Franks says.

We’ve got here a real crack at the wall. Lets hope that it evolves, Frank writes.
