This interview on CKUT with a friend, in my own home town, sitting in the studio just a short metro ride from where the Nurturance Culture essay was written, and the day before the sold out Montreal book launch, was fun, relaxed, and conversational. We hung out and talked masculinity and gender, owning and accountability, and what communities can do to foster conditions of protection for queer and trans and feminine-identified folks impacted by harm.
