Full Circle 9.01.17 “Just Pleasure: Revolutionary Approaches to the Erotic”

Just a quick trigger warning: please be forewarned that this radio hour includes discussion of colonization, sexual assault, and child sexual abuse. Please take good care of yourself while you listen.

Since the so-called sexual revolution, have we actually reached a -eh-hem- climax of sexual liberation? Might there still be unfinished work to do? Wouldn’t sexual liberation require consent, decolonization & accountability? Let’s find out.
On tonight’s show, we will:
– Learn about the history of consent on this continent
– Move beyond the dominant understanding of sexuality in settler colonial culture
– And discuss loving with accountability.

This show is a collaboration between Full Circle and Liberation Spring. Featured guests include Dr. Sarah Hunt, Dr, Kim TallBear, and Aishah Shahidah Simmons. All guests are interviewed by Anjali Nath Upadhyay of Liberation Spring.

About First Voice Apprenticeship

First Voice Apprenticeship is an apprenticeship program at KPFA 94.1 FM in Berkeley and is designed to provide comprehensive broadcast, technical, and administrative skills training in radio. First Voice also aims to build and strengthen community and empower our participants to find their voice and tell their stories. The First Voice program is based on community building, a collaborative work environment and passing on our skills and stories. We focus on bringing women and people of color into media and work in partnership with Pacifica community radio station KPFA and other community media outlets, both locally and nationally. The First Voice Apprenticeship Program is currently 18 months. Everyone is required to spend one business day each week working at KPFA, as well as two class nights. The dayshift is a three hour shift and apprentices do administrative and production tasks. The dayshift runs on an intergenerational group learning model, with each phase teaching the next, and integrates service to the station, skills acquired in classes, motivation and leadership.
