OUR SUNDAY LINKS

October 16th, 2016

from Brett

This weekend I drove five hours in a snowstorm to witness Kanye West’s Saint Pablo tour. And it was perfect. If you ask, I’ll tell you about the outfit I wore and why I chose it. I am also always willing to discuss West’s oeuvre at length. Enough about me, here are your links:  

  • Crissle, from one of my favourite podcasts The Read, has narrated her second Drunk History—this time about Stonewall! Watch it here.
  • This week in Indigenous Sci-Fi: The Northlander, directed by Benjamin Ross Hayden and filmed in Drumheller, Spring Bank forests, and Writing-on-Stone provincial park, opened in theaters this week. Listen to this short radio interview with Hayden about fantasy and casting.
  • Three ways you can support the Indigenous services necessary to fight HIV and AIDS in what is now called Canada.

  • In The Unproven Body, KL exposes the neoliberal relation between wellness and money, and what happens when your body refuses the kinds of data collection health insurance demands.

That’s all for this week! Wishing you all the power and resilience you need to get through this next week. XO
