Writer Karol Markowicz sits down with Bridget to discuss her first book, Stolen Youth: How Radicals Are Erasing Innocence And Indoctrinating A Generation . They discuss the definition of "woke," not allowing kids to just be kids, how the trans movement got ridiculous, how a live and let live ideology has gone out the window, why a lot of people don’t really understand what’s going on out there, and the creation of a situation where you’re only allowed to think one way. They also cover how there’s no alternative avenues for parents of trans kids right now, where the right is making a mistake, why having a kid means you can’t ignore the culture war, the effectiveness of school shooter drills, being refugees from NYC and LA, why mockery is so powerful, and the most surprising thing she learned from writing this book.
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.
