Today I’m bringing you a special, a recording of an expert panel discussion I moderated at the recent Women in Language conference, entitled *“Feminism in Our Language World”. * This is a top quality conversation I think you should hear. It isn’t a talk about how to learn vocabulary or find conversation partners in some kind of feminist way. It’s an examination of the world we live in, and how it may impact us as humans, not just language learners. > "Feminism helps me to get space to just say what I want to say and not feel like I can't say my message." > "A lot of people still see "feminist" as the extreme end of the spectrum and so are reluctant to use the term to describe themselves." > "I can talk all day about the intersectionality of all things. But when you're not in a place where you can make mistakes, we're not in a place where you can make change." > "To become the best version of yourself, you need to stand for the humanity of someone else." I am grateful to Lindsay and Shannon as well as our panelists Archana Parmar, Chesline Pierre Paul, Martina Gerdts, and Samantha Lassaux, for allowing me to put this audio out on the podcast.

We've never had it so good, have we? Language instruction is easily available these days through apps, social media, and teaching platforms. And it's so affordable ...if not entirely free! Sounds great, right? Well, just like every other big global industry "disruption", things aren't so simple with this one either. In today's podcast episode, we bring you a deep dive into that Boston Review (https://bostonreview.net/class-inequality/yuliya-komska-alberto-bruzos-moro-roberto-rey-agudo-who-pay-cheap-language-classes) article called "Who Pays for Cheap Language Instruction?" We discuss: * working conditions of language teachers and course creators * how the apps profit from language learners * what the tutoring market is like for teachers from different parts of the world * why this is weakening the language learning industry * what you can do about this right now "We have put up with “products” inspired less by linguistic justice than by game design. We have acquiesced to corporate cognitive-science experiments that harvest and mold our habits as data When it comes to acquiring languages, we have learned to ignore our agency, our sense of ethics and social justice, even as we have flexed these same faculties to support a bookstore or a clothing company. Simply put, we have consented to being the consumers that the language industry wants us to be. Where do you listen?
