Crazy Bitch Separatist - goblins harness the rave as a site of trauma and healing

"There's places that it's good for us to scream, and then there's a lot of places to be quiet and listen to who else is screaming."

Crazy Bitch Separatist (crazybitchseparatist.bandcamp.com) is a noisy, emo-rave void pop band powered by friendship and magic. They're launching their first tour right now, leaving from unceded Coast Salish territories and heading down the west coast. We talk about the rave, healing, trauma, friendship-based magic, collaboration, and the power of screaming.

Jeeyon Shim - goblins teach children how to use knives in the middle of the woods

"There is a difference between having needs and being fragile."

Jeeyon (www.jeeyonshim.com) is an outdoor educator with Trackers who uses story and roleplaying to teach children wilderness survival skills. She also larps, designs larps, practices magic, and exasperatedly deals with white nonsense on the regular. I'm so proud to know this goblin, and to get to talk to her about all this stuff.

I was so awkward & nervous! Luckily Jeeyon is brilliant and carried the whole thing.
