Hey non-premium people this is an episode of Rod’s spin-off show “Medium Talk” where he interviews activist Tia Oso. Tia’s family recently had their house destroyed in monsoon storm! There is a link to a Gofundme to help with the cost of taking care of her family and their house. Enjoy the episode and think about giving if you can.
Rod talks to activist Tia Oso about her start in activism, social media, public debates in blackness, protesting at Netroots, intersectionality in activism and visibility. This was a lovely conversation that went on so long but passed by so quick. Tia is smart, engaging, funny and insightful. Talking to her felt like I’d known her forever. Hope you enjoy this conversation.

Rod is joined by certified sex therapist Renee Burwell to discuss her path towards being a sex therapist, working for Bedroom Kandi, race in sexual health, infidelity, the taboo nature of conversations about sexual dysfunction and The Carters.
We had an entertaining conversation that was also very informative. I’m toying with the idea of having her back and maybe asking her some questions from the audience about sex and relationships. If that’s something you’d be interested in please leave a comment (anonymous if you want) in this thread or email me.
