Backtalk: #MeToo is Here To Stay

This week, Dahlia and Amy talk about a report that Asia Argento paid a settlement to a former castmate who accused her of sexual assault amidst questions about whether Argento’s behavior undermines the #MeToo movement. Another case has come to light about a female NYU professor who harassed and assaulted a male student and how the #MeToo movement can be inclusive for all survivors. Plus, we need your votes about the worst Marky Mark film—text “Markâ€� to 503-855-6485 to let tell us which film was suckier.

FX’s Pose is perfectly binge-worthy! Get into the lives of the folks who make up the ballroom scene of the 80’s on a show with a talented cast of majority transwomen.


What Belongs to You by Garth Greenwell is a beautifully introspective meditation on desire and consumption. The novel is about a gay American teacher in Bulgaria and his tenuous relationship with a sex worker and it’s perfectly devastating.


“I Don’t Know Youâ€� by The Marias is the slow, psychadelic-rock to lull you into falltime.
