“Together we’re going to figure out how to MAKE love.” – 001
Aaaaaaand: we’re off! Welcome to episode 001 of How To Make Love, a podcast by laura brewer.
In this episode, you’ll hear why I made this podcast, why the primary voices will be those of historically and culturally marginalized people (plus really rockin’ allies & co-conspirators), and what the hell it is that we’re up to. Cliff’s notes: I believe the key to repairing our human spirit and shared sense of humanity is learning how to MAKE love. To be able to choose it, to wield it, to create it — at will. And that means we have some cultural baggage about the concept of love, the ideology of love, and the very inconsistent and often harmful “practice” of love that we need to scrutinize.
You’ll also hear snippets of future episodes, along with powerful perspectives from many folks who share why and how they are understandably skeptical about love. And I’ll discuss how we’ll all work to make it. Welcome to the conversation.
Thank you for listening!
