Ep 12: #CancelPinkwashing and the Intersectionality Boogieman

On this episode: we addressed the deluge of #intersectionality related articles in the Jewish press, and spoke with Liza Behrendt of Jewish Voice for Peace about the Cancel Pinkwashing mobilization that took place at the National LGBTQ Task Force’s Creating Change Conference in Chicago. Our (newly appointed) New York media correspondent Jonathan Katz discussed the place of Tablet Magazine in the Jewish mediascape, and for those keeping track, we re-introduced the anti-shkoyach.
