PODCAST: DECONSTRUCTING #METOO: JOANN WYPIJEWSKI ON SEX, POWER, AND THE POLITICS OF FEAR


On Episode Sixteen of Ear to the Pavement, the third in a series of books related to #MeToo, Allison talks with NYC-based journalist JoAnn Wypijewski about her recent book, What We Don’t Talk About When We Talk About #MeToo: Essays on Sex, Authority, & the Mess of Life, published by Verso. In this collection, spanning thirty years of reporting on scandals from Abu Ghraib to theHarvey Weinstein saga, Wypijewski reveals our tendency to flatten complex stories in pursuit of villains and victims, in the process forging a “poisoned solidarity” that actually undermines the possibility of true social justice.
