CONTENT WARNING: This episode contains discussion of homophobia and mental illness. Listener discretion is advised. In this public release of a bonus episode originally released on Patreon in August 2019, Jaye discusses the divorce announcement of Joshua Harris, the author of Christian self-help book I Kissed Dating Goodbye, and his wife, singer Shannon Bonne, and their apparent ongoing deconstruction from evangelical Christianity. Are people who hold harmful beliefs capable of change? Jaye acknowledges her own deconstruction from toxic theology, and reflects on two people who influenced her life journey and departure from evangelical Christianity. These two people, who both passed away in the summer of 2019, were instrumental in setting her on the road to becoming a better human in both heart and mind.

The Atlanta spa shootings on March 16, 2021 were one of many large-scale shooting incidents that occurred after a lull in mass gun violence due to the pandemic. But this spree shooting stuck out due to the various issues the tragedy touched on, including gun control and the Second Amendment, stereotyping and discrimination against Asian people, racialized misogyny, policing biases, and toxic teachings within evangelical Christianity. Jaye discusses each of these issues in light of this incident, centering the victims and making the case for an intersectional approach to such horrifying events.  Twitter: @potstirrercast IG: @potstirrerpodcast Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/potstirrerpodcast/ Website: PotstirrerPodcast.com Source Links: https://www.nbcnews.com/news/asian-america/he-shot-everyone-he-saw-atlanta-spa-workers-recount-horrors-n1262928 https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/suspect-deadly-atlanta-area-spa-shootings-says-he-was-motivated-n1261299 https://www.nbcnews.com/news/asian-america/racism-sexism-must-be-considered-atlanta-case-involving-killing-six-n1261347?icid=related https://www.nbcnews.com/news/asian-america/soon-chung-park-worked-long-days-single-mom-bring-5-kids-korea-us-rcna514 https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/apr/16/us-police-officers-public-officials-crowdfunding-website-data-breach https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/mar/18/atlanta-shootings-victim-delaina-ashley-yaun https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/mar/23/yong-ae-yue-atlanta-spa-shootings https://www.history.com/news/black-panthers-gun-control-nra-support-mulford-act https://www.history.com/news/free-school-breakfast-black-panther-party?li_source=LI&li_medium=m2m-rcw-history https://time.com/4431356/nra-gun-control-history/ https://time.com/5948259/atlanta-shooting-victims/ https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2021/03/17/jay-baker-bad-day/ https://www.washingtonpost.com/religion/2021/03/17/atlanta-shooting-southern-baptist-pastors-wrestle/ https://religiondispatches.org/dont-discount-evangelicalism-as-a-factor-in-racist-murder-of-asian-spa-workers-in-georgia/ https://cstroop.com/2018/12/11/ex-evangelical-conversations-professor-of-psychology-joshua-grubbs-featuring-advice-for-exvies-seeking-therapists/ https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2021/03/17/georgia-shootings-eight-people-killed-attacks-spas-atlanta/ https://www.chosun.com/international/us/2021/03/17/XSDXYLMAQZCC5JWMQ4HGRZGOG4/ https://www.kxan.com/news/atlanta-shootings-put-spotlight-on-surging-anti-asian-sentiment-in-america/ https://www.teenvogue.com/story/anti-asian-hate-crimes-violence-us-history https://newlife.com/emb/bounce-your-eyes/ https://newsone.com/4114669/atlanta-spa-shooting-survivor-speaks-out/ https://www.vox.com/22338807/asian-fetish-racism-atlanta-shooting https://www.wbur.org/hereandnow/2021/03/22/objectifying-asian-women-racism https://www.stanforddaily.com/2021/03/29/experts-say-atlanta-shooting-reflects-the-fetishization-of-asian-women/ https://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/detroit/2021/03/21/paul-michels-georgia-spa-shootings/4792531001/ https://abcnews.go.com/US/atlanta-shooting-victims-family-grieves-afar-strangers-organize/story?id=76883538 https://www.wsj.com/articles/last-spa-shooting-funeral-planned-by-chinese-american-community-11617537601 https://www.ajc.com/news/breaking-officials-release-names-of-4-women-killed-in-atlanta-spa-shootings/UJR22SSUQZE2JHB7EFWRT6DUZI/ https://people.com/crime/son-of-atlanta-shooting-victim-hyun-jung-grant-recalls-their-last-moment-together/ https://www.thedailybeast.com/atlanta-massage-parlor-shooting-victim-sun-cha-kim-remembered-as-a-fighter https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/19/us/atlanta-shooting-victims.html http://sk.sagepub.com/reference/violentcrime/n255.xml https://digitalcommons.wcl.american.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1164&context=tma https://animemotivation.com/anime-fetishization-weebs-japan/ https://www.vice.com/en/article/qjpymm/the-alleged-atlanta-shooters-church-tried-to-disappear-from-the-internet https://www.crabapplefbc.org/ https://www.newyorker.com/news/us-journal/two-georgia-churches-grapple-with-the-shootings-in-atlanta Music: Potstirrer Podcast Theme composed by Jon Biegen from Stranger Still http://strangerstillshow.com/ http://jonathanbiegen.com Magic composed by Johny Grimes https://soundcloud.com/johny-grimes Creative Commons — Attribution 3.0 Unported — CC BY 3.0 Free Download / Stream: https://bit.ly/31WXS2t Music promoted by Audio Library https://youtu.be/rsz_WNXpTYc Scream composed by ELANSARIX Creative Commons — https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Download Free: https://elansarix.fanlink.to/scream Intractable composed by Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 4.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ Rain and Tears composed by Neutrin05 https://soundcloud.com/neutrin05​ Creative Commons — Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported — CC BY-SA 3.0 Free Download / Stream: http://bit.ly/2PKvY28​ Music promoted by Audio Library https://youtu.be/RRsQBq9nSXQ Villanous Treachery composed by Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 4.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ Sad Music Sound Effect composed by Scott Buckley www.scottbuckley.com.au YouTube - bit.ly/2xeSz0l Music promoted by no copyright music store https://youtu.be/UrCRjIXrd7Y
CONTENT WARNING: This episode contains graphic descriptions of physical violence, physical suffering and death. Listener discretion is advised.  In this public release of a Patreon bonus episode originally released in July 2019, Jaye discusses graphic images of suffering and oppression. Should these be protected by content warnings? The episode dives into the history of violent images and how  unaltered visuals moved many Americans to act politically. She also explores the downsides of consuming violent imagery, particularly on mental health, and why content warnings are used to alert audiences to graphic content.

It is the middle of President Joe Biden's first 100 days in office, and his administration has been hard at work attempting to end the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States, as well as other policy priorities. But actions on immigration-related policy, as it relates to a shift in direction from Donald Trump, have been more modest. Jaye discusses Biden's ending of the Muslim Travel Ban and the lifting of restrictions for allowing unaccompanied minors into the US, among other immigration policies. Has Biden gone far enough to reverse Trump-era immigration policies, or is his centrism getting in the way of doing more?

In this public release of a Patreon bonus episode originally released in January 2020, Jaye tells the story of the 1969 University of Wyoming Cowboys football team. Fourteen African-American players on the team were dismissed by their head coach in the middle of the 1969 season for asking permission to protest. How is the Black 14 incident, and the aftermath, instructive for understanding social protest by athletes today?

How could seemingly normal Americans end up becoming right-wing extremists? Jaye discusses the role of extremist Christianity as a gateway to radical right-wing movements.

86 - This Is America

86 - This Is America

2021-01-1149:37

The year 2021 has begun in the United States with a tragic attack on democracy. On January 6, pro-Trump rioters who were taking part in a protest stormed the US Capitol Building in Washington DC, during a joint session of Congress held to certify the results of the 2020 presidential election. The Capitol attack, incited by the rhetoric of Donald Trump and other Republican politicians, led to the deaths of five people, including a Capitol police officer who was murdered by rioters. It has led to many questions about possible Trumpist infiltration of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, racial and political bias in how we view the act of protest, the health of American democracy, and many more. Ervin Johnson II, cofounder of Shining Otaku Comics, joins Jaye to discuss the Capitol Riots and the surrounding issues, as well as what happens next - both to Donald Trump and to America. This informal conversation also includes some levity - as sometimes we need to laugh to keep from crying. *Correction: Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff are the first Black and Jewish US senator respectively representing the State of Georgia.

In the fourth annual Potstirrer Podcast War on Christmas Special, Jaye reflects on the strange, horrifying year that was 2020. Would a decently better response to the pandemic have netted Donald Trump a second term? And does incoming president Joe Biden have the fight in him to take on the groups who are seeking to end democracy in the United States?

In this flashback bonus episode - originally a two-parter first released in May and June of 2019, Jaye shares her Top Five Terrible Humans List. These are influential Americans, dead or alive, who made a negative contribution to their sphere of influence during their lifetime. In this episode, Jaye discusses her purely, 100 percent subjective criteria, dishonorable mentions, and the full list of Terrible Humans. Neither Donald Trump nor Mike Pence can be found on the list, because that's way too easy. But listen in to see who does make the list!

The 2020 US general election has taken place, and after days of counting in several swing states, former Vice-President Joe Biden has won the election decisively over Donald Trump. However, the expected gains for Democrats in Congress - the "blue wave" - were not realized. Why did this result occur? Jaye details what she believes is the real reason why centrist Democrats are blaming progressives and black activists for the unmet expectations in Congress. Meanwhile, Trump has yet to concede the presidential election to Biden, and has pushed the courts and state legislatures to set aside the election results in favor of gifting him a second term, citing "fraud" that has yet to be proven in a court of law. Are Trump's efforts a sign of a soft coup, or a grift? And should Americans be concerned about democracy, even as it appears Trump is failing in his efforts?

The 2020 US general election is coming up, and it's time to get ready! Jaye discusses political polling - including why the 2016 presidential poll predictions were not as much of a failure as it has been reported in the press. Will 2020 be a repeat of 2016? Also, Jaye discusses the current landscape and provides guidance in case of a Donald Trump victory or should Joe Biden win the election.

In the runup to the 2020 US general election, many events have occurred on local, state and federal levels that point to an authoritarian slide for the United States. Jaye discusses some of these events, including the presidential and vice-presidential debates, the plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, the Kentucky grand jury decision in the Breonna Taylor case, Donald Trump's ban of "critical race theory" in public schools, and the rushed efforts to confirm staunch conservative Amy Coney Barrett to the US Supreme Court in advance of the election. Focusing on the example set by the Christian Right, Jaye makes the case for progressives voting for Joe Biden in this election, and warns that on this year's ballot is the fate of this democratic republic.

CONTENT WARNING: The following episode involves discussion of crime, police brutality and bigotry, including physical violence, murder, and racism. Listener discretion is advised. In this commentary episode, Jaye shares her reaction to the events during the week of the 2020 Republican National Convention, including the shooting of Jacob Blake Jr. by police, and the shooting at the resulting Kenosha, WI protests, allegedly perpetrated by Kyle Rittenhouse. How did the police approach each of these incidents, and what do the differences say about the nature of police brutality and the police state in America? Jaye makes the case that the way the police, the Republican Party, and many right-wing voices discuss the terrorist attack committed at the Kenosha protests should give every American, regardless of race or ideology, pause.

CONTENT WARNING: The following episode includes discussion of physical and sexual abuse, including the abuse of children. Listener discretion is advised. In this flashback bonus episode first released as a Patreon bonus episode in August 2018 originally entitled "Abuse: Endorsed by Scripture?," Jaye discusses the use of Romans 13:1-5, a passage in the Bible invoked by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the White House Press Secretary at the time, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, to justify the separation and detainment of families seeking asylum at the US-Mexico border. What does this Bible passage really mean - in a historical and contemporary context - if Sessions and Sanders are correct? Jaye outlines the danger of using religious passages to justify oppressive government actions. This episode also includes fresh new commentary that frames this episode in the current context of the COVID-19 pandemic and Black Lives Matter protests.

Listener discretion is advised. In the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd at the hands of police, and the resulting Black Lives Matter uprisings and protests, there has been an ongoing national conversation regarding police brutality and race. In the final part of a two-episode series, Jaye discusses developments in policing that have increased the danger police pose to society, including the infiltration of police departments by white supremacists and police militarization. She also outlines some possible solutions that are intended to make all communities safer, from police reforms such as increased accountability and demilitarization, to police restructuring such as defunding the police and abolishing police. Why is even incremental change so difficult, and what does it truly mean to "defund" and "abolish" police?

CONTENT WARNING: The following episode involves discussion of crime and police brutality, including violence, injury & death. Listener discretion is advised. In the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd at the hands of police, and the resulting Black Lives Matter uprisings and protests, there has been an ongoing national conversation regarding police brutality and race. In Part 1 of a two-episode series, Jaye contends that to discuss police brutality in an honest way, we must discuss policing in America. What are some common hurdles to discussing the issue, and what are some important facts in regards to policing and race? Jaye also delves into the history of US policing, including why modern police departments were developed. Is the system truly broken, or working as intended?

In the public release of February 2019's Patreon bonus episode, Jaye discusses the news story from January 2019 about the confrontation in Washington DC, between Catholic high school students from Northern Kentucky and a Native American elder. How does a seemingly straightforward news story, complete with video, morph into a controversy dividing society along the familiar lines of partisanship and race? Jaye happens to live in the same metropolitan area the school is located, and she gives her unique insight on the events and underlying issues, as well as the symbolism of the Make America Great Again hats worn by the students. For the public release, Jaye also provides an update of the incident, and reframes it in light of Black Lives Matter and America's current reckoning with its treatment of black and indigenous people of color (BIPOC).

CONTENT WARNING: The following episode involves discussion of the COVID-19 pandemic, police brutality, and historical events related to racial, ethnic, disability and class discrimination, including discussion of violence, illness, injury & death. Listener discretion is advised. Against the backdrop of a deadly pandemic, the fabric of the United States is coming undone. Jaye discusses the impact of the novel coronavirus on communities of color, including Black, Latino, and Native Americans. Also, were the anti-quarantine protests truly "peaceful," and who was truly behind those protests? In addition, Jaye reflects on the George Floyd murder by Minneapolis police officers, the resulting anti-police brutality protests, and the aggressive police response. What do the events of 2020 say about our country's leadership and the future of America?
