- What is intersectionality? Intersectionality acknowledges that people’s multiple identities influence how they are treated and how they experience the world. This is one of my favorite words and concepts to talk about; once you get familiar with intersectionality, you’ll begin to see it as a really useful and empowering lens.
- Why do we need to think about intersectionality? Podcasting is an intimate medium. As a listener, you can usually tell when a show was not produced with you in mind—even if you care about the subject matter. By thinking of our listeners as diverse and multi-dimensional, we can avoid the trap of assuming a singular experience.
- What if my podcast has nothing to do with identity or feminism? Even if your podcast is an audio drama or focuses narrowly on a topic that’s not explicitly feminist, thinking in an intersectional way will make you a better podcaster. The better you understand your audience, the more connected to you they will feel.
