    (Ep 32) Connecting Appalachia & Palestine: Interview w/ Tiara - Part 1

    8 APR 2024 · Starting off April on the right foot: no fools here, just Chelsea and Tiara sitting down for what was supposed to be a primer on the situation in Palestine, but turned into a conversation that had to go on for two whole days and six hours of content. This is the first of the episodes that came from that content, and in this episode, we get to know Tiara better as a fresh face to cohost the podcast with us. She tells us about the grief that compelled her to stand in at a direct action in solidarity with Palestinians in October, and how that vulnerability in sharing her grief has transformed the lives and hearts of her own family members. We do our best to pull on the threads that are woven between Appalachia and occupied Palestine, and touch on the importance of paying attention, holding space, and reciprocity. We start to dig into the geopolitical history of the land and its people that led to the current genocide, but we cover that much more in depth in next week's episode. *TRIGGER WARNING - this episode contains dialogue related to genocide, settler colonialism, white supremacy, anti-semitism, and violence against human beings (including children)* You can support this podcast at; for all the places you can find us, check out our If you want to share your story on the show, get in touch with us at RESOURCES & FURTHER READING: - - - - - - - PEOPLE TO FOLLOW ON THE GROUND: - Motaz Azaiza  - Saleh Aljafarawi - Ismail Al Dahdouh - Bisan Owda - Wael Al Dadouh - Plestia Alaqad

    (Ep 31) It's All One Big Conspiracy!

    25 MAR 2024 · SEASON TWO is back, this time with two new cohosts to make the show extra fun! In this episode, we introduce our new cohosts that are joining Chelsea on the show: Sierra (from episode 8) and Tiara, two additional loudmouthed and badass Appalachian women to raise hell and make good trouble with us. We declare ourselves a fullblown conspiracy podcast as we touch on everything from Amazon to Kate Middleton to AIPAC to Epstein to the Irish Prime Minister and on and on. As we tend to do in the show, we bring it all full circle around the idea that our liberation is inherently interconnected and none of us are free until al of us are free. *DISCLAIMERS: This podcast SHOULD NOT be considered legal advice at all, even if one of our hosts works for a Public Defense office.
