JSC Radio – Episode 17: Lara Witt (and an update on where I’ve been)

PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  What’s Up y’all! So it’s been five months since I updated this blog and JSC Radio has kinda become more of an organized THING. When I first started doing this podcast back in March, my goal was for it to evolve into an extension of this blog and eventually become the “People’s Podcast.” It doesn’t have a set genre by design and that allows me to take on different issues every week. In the Last few months, the show has expanded to both iTunes and Stitcher Radio (Hey, Hey!). I’ve talked about everything from WrestleMania to A Tribe Called Quest to the Detroit Lions to Mass Shootings and the deaths of Philando Castile and Alton SterlingFrom Brexit to the NBA to the Olympics, I’ve been all over the place, but there’s also been a common theme: These podcasts are about giving a different voice to different subjects. I’ve also been lucky enough to have two great guests on the show. The first was Jenee Darden, the daughter of Christopher Darden — who is best known as being one of the prosecutors in the O.J. Simpson Trial — following ESPN’s incredible documentary on Simpson. The second came earlier this week when I talked to Lara Witt, a journalist, blogger, Feminist activist, and sexual assault survivor who grew up in Switzerland but moved to Philadelphia in 2010. The reason I brought her on was to bluntly (very bluntly) address the NFL’s — and football as a whole — treatment of women and how their reaction to violence against women seems to to pale in comparison to things such as refusing to stand for the National Anthem. Let’s Go

Coming up on this episode JSC Radio, Lara and I talk about:

Lara Witt is my guest on This Week’s JSC Radio. She’s a journalist, Feminist, and Sexual Assault Survivor
  • What it was like growing up in supposedly neutral Switzerland
  • How she adjusted to the United States
  • Lara goes into detail about the night she was sexually assaulted
  • What we are getting wrong in teaching boys to treat women with respect
  • Her thoughts on how hypocritical the reaction was to Colin Kaepernick
  • Lara has a few choice words for Lena Dunham after her foolishness with Odell Beckham.

Lara’s interview begins at the 15:25 mark of the show for those trying to get right to it

I want to thank those of you who continue to support JSC Radio and continue to help this show grow day by day. Feel free to support this show by subscribing, sharing links, giving me a rating and a review on iTunes and/or Stitcher and telling others as I continue to build this thing.

Until Next Time, That’s The Way It Is. Friday, September 9, 2016.
