Sex and Politics – Jamie Varon

Sex and Politics – Jamie Varon

The 31 year-old writer discusses feminism, sexual violence and misogyny in the context of partisan politics, and her personal life. She shares about the complexities of marrying a Muslim, growing up being told “you’re too sensitive”, avoiding her emotions by achieving, hating her body, fighting the drill sergeant in her head and learning the power of being vulnerable and letting go of shame.

Hello nice listener!

I’m so sorry but MIHH episodes one year and older are only available at Stitcher Premium. Go to www.StitcherPremium.com/mentalpod and use offer code “MENTAL” to get a free month of listening when you signup.

For $4.99/month you get access to ad-free versions of all our shows (older than one year) going back to episodes #1 from March 2011, as well as hundreds of hours of other podcasts’ back catalogs, original shows, exclusive bonus episodes, stand up comedy albums and more.

Please remember to use the offer code “MENTAL” because it gives me credit for bringing a new subscriber to Stitcher Premium and that helps me financially and the podcast needs it. I wish I didn’t have to do this but there it is. Every little bit helps.
