Mary Harrington Is Against Progress

Walk-Ins Welcome Episode #224

Author Mary Harrington sits down to discuss her new book Feminism Against Progress. She and Bridget discuss how it’s always taken for granted that progress is a good thing, but in order to view it that way you need to narrow your focus and ignore everything that doesn’t fit into the narrative, and the disturbing fact that slavery exists today and it’s never been more profitable. They cover Critical Theory and what it's doing to our society, how it’s not possible to be a disinterested observer ever, how you build back your life from major loss and breakdown, the importance of being embodied and what the internet is doing to us, irony poisoning, how to handle the internet and your kids, being a stay at home mom, the complicated moral questions of surrogacy, and how women’s interests are not the same across classes even within a single society and the repercussions of how that plays out.

Bridget Phetasy admires grit and authenticity. On Walk-Ins Welcome, she talks about the beautiful failures and frightening successes of her own life and the lives of her guests. She doesn’t conduct interviews—she has conversations. Conversations with real people about the real struggle and will remind you that we can laugh in pain and cry in joy but there’s no greater mistake than hiding from it all. By embracing it all, and celebrating it with the stories she’ll bring listeners, she believes that our lowest moments can be the building blocks for our eventual fulfillment.
