A deeply moving and inspirational conversation with writer/podcast host/incredible human, adrienne maree brown.
We're not quite sure how to even describe this episode, other than to say it left us wanting to journal afterwards. Erin has been trying to get adrienne maree brown on the show for quite some time, and after listening, you'll hopefully understand why. Her new novel, Grievers, is based in Detroit, and centers around a mysterious illness, loss, gentrification, loneliness, and ultimately, the importance of community. It is a poignant reflection of her life's work, and we get into her origin story, Pleasure Activism, the toxicity of Capitalism, and how to overcome the anger and the sadness to realize the bigger picture. Thank you adrienne for this lovely therapy session, you rocked our world and we hope to have you on again sometime soon!
