Sexual Misconduct: The Questions & The Answers

Karrin Vasby Anderson

Remy Carrerio

The Silence Breakers: Times Person Of The Year. Al Franken Announces His Resignation. Matt Lauer Is Fired. Alleged Child Molester Runs For The Senate. Donald Trump Admits Assaults On Women & Becomes President. The headlines surrounding sexual misconduct tell only part of the story. When is misconduct a crime? Why are some of the accused forced to resign, while others are fired? And, how come some of the more abhorrent allegations are overlooked? Worse still, how is it possible for a self-confessed sexual-abuser to sit in the Oval office? To help us make sense of a many-layered and confusing topic, two astute guests will join the next edition of Life Elsewhere. Karrin Vasby Anderson, Professor of Communication Studies at Colorado State University, will make her first appearance on the program. Dr. Anderson is Director of Graduate Studies and teaches courses in rhetoric, political communication, and gender and communication. She studies the culture of politics and the politics of culture, examining the ways in which political identity is rhetorically constructed and contested in popular media. She is the coauthor of two books: Woman President: Confronting Postfeminist Political Culture and Governing Codes: Gender, Metaphor, and Political Identity. Also, returning to the program is Remy Carreiro Deputy Managing Editor, Rantt News and author the aptly-titled article, “How Misogynistic Male Reporters Shaped The Coverage Of The 2016 Election”. Our two guests expertly answer Norman B’s questions, including, “Is there an opposite of Misogynist?”

What’s In It For Me

The Hit That Never Was is the popular weekly musical interlude where listeners take over and select a piece of music they think deserved to get more attention. This week, aspiring architect Delphina, wrote to us with flattering comments about Life Elsewhere and asked to hear What’s In It For Me from Bows & Arrows, the 2004 album by The Walkmen. Delphina says in her email that she saw the band live once and believes they should have been (or still could be) huge. She emphasizes “huge” by repeating the word about 20 times! We agree, and are delighted to play a big favorite at the Life Elsewhere offices. If you would like to get your Hit That Never Was on the show, this what you do, send an email with a little info about yourself and why you think your selection deserves to be heard, to: hitthatneverwas@lifeelsewhere.co

Also in the program, Robert PriestFounder and Editor of Eight By Eight the dazzlingly creative and premier magazine devoted to the beautiful game of soccer, helps us understand all about the Power, Corruption & Lies that brought FIFA and the unlikely-named Sepp Blatter into the world’s headlines this week.

Plus, former banker at J P Morgan, Michelle Miller talks about her debut novel, The Underwriting. corporate thriller that takes place at Hook, an online dating start -up, where a high-stakes deal pitches the power of Wall Street against the savvy of Silicon Valley – until a young woman’s death threatens to topple it all.
