What pronouns do you use? Have you ever been asked? Do you ask others their pronouns? This week on the podcast, we hand over the reins to our talented summer intern, Paulus van Horne, to share a very personal story about pronouns. In the spring of 2016, Paulus came out as non-binary at college, asking friends and teachers to use the gender neutral pronouns they/them/their. This summer at The World, Paulus came out for the first time at a workplace. This is their story.
Ta-Nehisi Coates is one of America’s most celebrated and insightful writers. But there’s part of him that would be fine with it all going away. Marc and Ta-Nehisi talk about the impulse to pull back when things start to get good, the burden of being treated as a representative for a larger community, and the reason Ta-Nehisi finds Black Panther so relatable. They also discuss two of Ta-Nehisi’s biggest influences: James Baldwin and David Carr. This episode is sponsored by SimpliSafe.
