I don’t think it’s anybody else’s job to educate me
— Ani Lee

In this podcast episode, I'm sharing a conversation with teacher and podcaster, Ani Lee. You can find Ani online as Close Knit, a catch all term that she uses to encompass her teaching and creative pursuits. In this conversation we touch on body image, shame, privilege, using creative pursuits to process emotions, intersectionality, and activism vs self care. We also spend some time discussing how Ani is trying to navigate her way between noticing struggles that need to be fought whilst not being paralysed by it.

You can find Ani in the follow spaces online:

We sing the praises of the meme to educate in a fast consumption world (don't stop there though, dive so much deeper):

Resources that Ani mentions:

  • We Should All Be Feminists’ by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie [please note that at this moment, Chimamanda’s stance regarding her feminism and trans inclusion is widely debated outside the scope of this interview. My feminism is transgender inclusive]

  • The ‘2 Hours a Week’ email newsletter for civic engagement

  • Ani also quotes an extract from a poem by Rev. Victoria Safford, 'The Gates of Hope'.

  • She talks gratefully about her experience of interviewing Brandi Harper of PurlBKnit for her podcast. You can catch that episode, here.
