Who am I?

promotional sticker

I’m a lefty, liberal, secular, progressive anthropologist who teaches at a community college. I have long been concerned about the loss of my freedom of speech – particularly with regard to anything that might be construed as political – as a consequence of my employment. Therefore the blog began as an anonymous outlet for the passion of my political opinions. It threatens now to become something very different. We’ll see.

    I have listened to your podcasts recently after discovering them a few months ago. I must say you bring up some great information and discussion points. I entered university this year(after working as a machinist for 6 years) where I experienced much discrimination and also simply overheard conversations that were quite offensive during my time in the shops. One of my classes is Women & Gender studies which I am finding fascinating, which is also done in a Canadian context(I’m from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada)

    I just wanted to share my interest in your podcast, and hope to hear more.
