I'm shutting down the Full-Spectrum Doula Circles monthly webinar series so it can be reborn as a podcast. I'm doing this to increase accessibility, because everyone who I've talked to about the choice between webinars and podcasts has said they prefer podcasts.
The podcast will be a combination of new interviews and many of the webinar interviews edited to be podcast-friendly and to remove the voices of anyone who doesn't explicitly consent to being on the podcast.
Our last Full-Spectrum Doula Circles webinar was last month: How Poor Women Are Deprived Of Reproductive Privacy with Khiara Bridges. Khiara talked about the power of ethnography, how racist and sexist laws are punishing poor women, and how to engage with love and revolution. Good news: Khiara agreed to have the recording of this conversation be a part of the new podcast so if you missed it as a webinar, you'll get to hear it later as a podcast.
This was webinar number 25, the last in a two-year series. I feel humbled, grateful, and invigorated looking back over those past two years. Here's an image that I shared during the last webinar of the second year of speakers (not including two speakers who preferred not to have their pictures used publicly).
There are three ways you can be a part of the new podcast:
1. Subscribe. You can subscribe to the podcast on Apple podcasts and give it a rating. These actions help other people to find it. While you're at it, you could also let your friends and colleagues know about it.
2. Suggest. If there's someone you think I should interview for the podcast, please let me know. I'm especially eager to talk with people who can shed light on supporting incarcerated pregnant people, supporting folks with disabilities, the importance of postpartum support, and grappling with models of financial sustainability and accessibility for doulas, and I'm particularly interested in sharing the mic with people of color.
3. Sustain. If you're excited about this podcast and you know you're going to gain something from it, you can help to sustain it by becoming a supporter at Patreon.
