134 Ebony Adams – Hate Is Just a Four-Letter Word

Lizzie and Kat are joined by author, artist, activist, and (former) academic Ebony Adams. She hosts the Feminist Frequency Radio podcast, whose motto is, “Be critical of the media you love,” and coauthored History vs. Women: The Defiant Lives that They Don’t Want You to Know with media critic Anita Sarkeesian.

133 Andy Kamenetzky – The Dreams of Dylan McKay

We are thrilled to discuss this unforgettable episode with Andy Kamenetzky, who originally joined us for the season two episode, “A Competitive Edge.” Andy is a sports reporter for ESPNLA 710, and he and his brother Brian together host the Kamenetzky Podcast.

132 Our Friend Anna – Intervention

We’re very grateful that Kat is joined this week by our friend Anna to discuss the season five episode of Beverly Hills, 90210 in which Dylan’s substance abuse is confronted with a staged intervention and catastrophic consequences.

This episode features a frank discussion about mental health, addiction, and chemical dependency, and may be difficult for some listeners. The examples discussed in this interview are solely representative of the individuals speaking, and should not be generalized to apply to the vast diversity of lived experiences. If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, a resource for local support groups can be found at tinyurl.com/90210help.
