Housing Is A Human Right, During #Covid & Beyond w/ #NY10 Candidate @LindseyBoylan! — KSS#178 05/29/2020 Joining me is my new favorite candidate for the House: Lindsey Boylan! She moved to New York without bootstraps, scraping by the way so many of us and so few office-holders have. Called to public service, she worked her way up to the office of Economic Development for the state of New York, where, as deputy secretary, she helped make the $15 minimum wage a reality along with paid family leave. LINDSEY! I am thrilled that you could make time to talk about not just your candidacy for Congress, but WHY you’re running and the practical {admittedly wonky} side of declarations like “housing is a human right.” BONUS content at Patreon; Keep me (and the show) afloat via Venmo (KatieSpeakMail@gmail.com) and Amazon Wish (Necessities) List Links to on-air references: SONG: ”I’m Doing Fine”, Normandie Wilson Is Tired of Being Nice (2015) My take… Seriously, take a minute to scan her Priorities Page; if she wins in her district, she goes to the House to make policy for ALL of us.

Borderlands: Centering Migrant Lives w/ @TheTinaVasquez of @Rewire_News — #KatieSpeakShow Ep176 07/13/2019 In brief: Listener fav Tina Vasquez is back! Since her last visit, #EndICE activism has ramped up — in language and action. We chat about the use of the phrase “concentration camps” to describe borderland detention facilities for a bit and I hope that y’all will take our discussion to heart. She describes the tragic deaths of Óscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez and his daughter Valeria as they sought asylum at the doorstep to our country and why the gruesome pictures being shared widely are more than just triggering. They are dehumanizing — and to a people who are already dehumanized by our administration and its supporters. Tina also does a fantastic (as always) job breaking down the intentionally jacked process by which US Marshals, Border Patrol, Children and Family Services, and ICE transfer, detain, and abuse migrants and refugees — a process that is currently persecuting and assaulting Rene Lopez, an indigenous gender nonconforming asylum seeker held in San Francisco. We pack a whole lot into 40 minutes! And as always, there are action items (eg: follow/support: Annunciation House in El Paso).

Exciting 2020 Candidates, Sh*tAss Tr*mp Policies, SCIENCE! and More w/ @AllyBoguhn of @Rewire_News — #KatieSpeakShow Ep175 07/06/2019 In brief: Happy Frida Kahlo’s birthday! For this week of the year, I’ve come to prefer celebrating a radical, bisexual, labor and worker’s rights activist, chronically ill artist who seemed to know herself so well that her life is an inspiration more than 100 years after her birth. She was only seven years older than I am now when she died and her life was fuller than most of us could begin to dream about. Today’s episode features a chat with Ally Boguhn, a long-time media watcher and current beltway reporter for Rewire.News. GET THIS: she has good news, hope for 2020, and craftiness in the capitol as left-leaning electeds work to subvert the Tr*mp agenda!

Weaponized Laws & Non-Clinical #Abortion Care w/ Jill E. Adams of @IfWhenHow — #KatieSpeakShow Ep174 06/15/2019 In brief: In our final abortion landscape deep-dive, digging into where we are and how we got here as, the brilliant Jill E. Adams of If/When/How (and SIA Legal) and I go hard at all three parts of the problematic “Safe, Legal, and Rare”. I posit that we aim for Effective, Supported, and Private — but that’s just my first, in-the-moment ‘update’, likely in need of further consideration. (And I definitely don’t speak for Jill.) She explains the breakdown in the “rational actor” theory and the disingenuous (at best) way that “objectivity” is imbued into legal educations that graduates take with them into practice — or, most dangerously and very commonly, into public office. Her take is extremely illuminating, even for long-time followers of reproductive rights and justice. I’m so excited to bring it to you!

Psssst: It's Not Just About #RoevWade! Breaking Down #Abortion Law w/ Jeryl Hayes (J.D., LL.M.) of @IfWhenHow — #KatieSpeakShow Ep172 06/01/2019 In brief: The three-part series with the experts at If/When/How (newly merged with SIA Legal Team) continues with the outstanding Jeryl Hayes! She breaks down the legal landscape that has allowed (and in some ways encouraged) the proliferation of the restrictions on abortion at the state-level. We talk about the problems caused by a relentless focus on Roe v. Wade — not just the over-confident expectation that this precedent was good enough to hold in perpetuity, but which people were never truly protected in a system that trades money for access to basic human rights like bodily autonomy. It’s a birth justice bonanza, y’all! Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone.
