This will be our last blog post. We are transferring all resource links to our new Facebook page, to be announced on episode 31.

In our 30th episode (!!!) we are discuss views on trigger warnings and personal stories/strategies for teaching controversial and difficult topics in the classroom. This convo is also useful for how to engage with anyone about topics like racism and police violence, sexual assault, and more. Speaking of sexual assault (ugh), Donald Trump is again ruining the dinner party but so is Hillary for not taking a golden opportunity to denounce rape culture. All of this and more ranting on this week’s episode. 

Who is ruining the dinner party?

Just the entire 2016 election. More specifically, the news editors who created this mess (to make that money) and Hillary for not denouncing rape culture and instead taking the proverbial “high road” by not mentioning it at all.

Here, check out this SNL clip about the last presidential debate.

Speaking of Donald being a giant trigger warning, that is our main-ish topic for this week.

Inspired by a listener request to delve into the topic and trigger warnings being discussed in the public sphere, mostly because the University of Chicago denounced them.

We also share tips and tricks in having difficult conversations in the classroom. Here is one of many articles floating around cyberspace addressing faculty who want to engage in controversial topics in the classroom. need more resources? Email us.
