Conversations with creative minds. This is a wonderfully listenable (and teachable) podcast: beautifully produced, carefully curated. Here’s how the podcast describes itself:
Each episode centers around an intimate conversation yet digs deeper into each woman’s background, philosophy and process through artful audio documentaries soundtracked by music made by women. The show is hosted and created by Elaine Sheldon and Sarah Ginsburg, documentary makers who are interested in how their guests got to where they are today…. We bring you stories of what makes these women tick, their beginnings, their roadblocks, and the delightful bits in between.
Especially teachable episode
Lina Srivastava What’s the nature of social impact? Can art truly change people’s perspectives and compel emancipatory change on the level of systems and structures? If so, what is the power of arguments themselves? This episode’s conversation anchors these kinds of conceptual questions in highly concrete stories and examples. Consider teaching alongside the documentary that Lina helped work on, Born into Brothels, which in turn might be more useful when paired with feminist critical theory like Seyla Benhabib’s Another Cosmopolitanism.
