Stanford and language as a tool for social change (The Amy Guth Show)

In this episode of The Amy Guth Show podcast, Guth breaks down the Stanford rape case, Brock Turner, the victim’s letter, as well as letters from the convicted rapist’s father and childhood friend, and conversations swirling around all of it online and IRL, and explains how even some common, seemingly harmless language we use to talk about victimhood, sexual assault, online abuse, power and privilege can subtly contribute to the culture. Plus, she explains a neat trick for deciding what to do when someone dismisses something as “politically correct.”

Also, she swears a lot in this episode, so earbuds, earbuds.
