This week I spoke with author Minda Harts about the moment she made a difficult decision to leave a racist work environment and prioritize her mental health. Journalist Adam Serwer shared why he felt it was important to write about the Trump Presidency, even if he lost the 2020 election. I and business of entertainment contributor Casey Mendoza nerded out about the women of color making waves in science fiction and fantasy fandoms. And in a special episode of Sippin’ the Political Tea, retired Major General Linda Singh and Navy veteran Tashandra Poullard opened up to me about the challenges of coming home from war, and how they’d like to see the U.S. military evolve beyond the “forever wars.”
