In light of RWA's 12/23/19 censure of Courtney Milan for calling out racism, I revisit a conversation about power, fixing corrupt systems from within, and the patriarchy. New content includes a summary of the issue/themes in the intro, and previously unreleased bonus content and updated outro at the end. An edited version of episode 7 between 5:00 and 38:00. - Erin Leafe (Learning the Tropes Podcast) and I get deep into a discussion of power, privilege, the patriarchy, and pretending to be someone you’re not after reading The Heiress Effect by Courtney Milan.
Content from about the 5:00 - 38:00 mark was previously part of episode 7 of Shelf Love.
