2018 Year End Link Roundup

Posted in Editorials on December 31st, 2018

As with 2017, my personal life is just fine. My son is healthy and growing, Adam and I make time for work and being together and personal projects. We went to a Families Belong Together March, and I met comedy writer Pat Cassels while bowling for abortion funds. I went to Elton John’s Farewell tour and had an amazing time and had my most viral tweet ever. Karen and I made 12 episodes of Feminist Coffee Hour, which I am so proud of.

I don’t have much to say about movies or music (though I loved The Shape of Water, and Blackkklansman) or tv (two of my favorites – Portlandia and The X-Files ended this year and I also watched a lot of baking shows and 90′s sci-fi.) But here’s some recommendations for some articles, podcasts and books:

In Case You Missed It

Judge finalizes $25 million Trump University settlement for students of ‘sham university’

Ivanka Trump tried to ‘bribe’ Planned Parenthood to stop performing abortions

Counter-Protesting at Abortion Clinics Is Actually Counterproductive

Point: A year after Charlottesville, the alt-right is in shambles

Counterpoint: The White Nationalists Are Winning

If Nike Is Serious About Oppression Against People of Color, They Should Pay Their Own Workers

Proud Boys Founder Gavin McInnes: ‘We Need More Violence from the Trump People’

Amtrak Hijacker Participated In Neo-Nazi Chats with Charlottesville Organizers

No Joke — Real Life

No Evidence New York Legislator Died from Flu Shot

How We Know Brett Kavanaugh Is Lying

When A Woman Is Raped In Rural Alaska, Does Anyone Care?

Dean Skelos, Ex-New York Senate Leader, Gets 4 Years and 3 Months in Prison

Fox News calls Donald Trump a dictator

The Deadly Incel Movement’s Absurd Pop Culture Roots

Anti-fascists were stabbed at a neo-Nazi rally. Then police tried to charge them

Jordan Peterson’s shocking remarks remind us how Nazi apologism has crept back into our political debate

Podcast Recommendations

Of course I think you should listen to my show, Feminist Coffee Hour. We even did a year-end wrap up with almost all positive news stories from 2018 – check it out!

Scam Wow – This show about great American scams is hilarious and informative.

The Dream This is a podcast about one of my obsessions: multi level marketing and why it’s evil.

The Shadows – a work of fiction from Kaitlin Prest. A soulful, haunting romance. I listened to it in November and I am still thinking about it.
