Misogyny: The Word Of The Year?

What a year it has been, even the casual observer will acknowledge, we have never seen or lived through anything like the last twelve months. So, what should be The Word Of The Year? “Unprecedented certainly sums up the antics of the 45th President. But, is there a better word that encapsulates 2017? We here at Life Elsewhere were in continuous debate over this when a brilliantly succinct article in Rantt came to our attention, “How Misogynistic Male Reporters Shaped The Coverage Of The 2016 Election”. Skillfully authored by Remy Carrerio, Rantt Deputy Managing Editor, her piece coincidentally appeared just as the story of Matt Lauer’s expulsion from NBC was breaking. Lauer, you might remember, oversaw a live prime-time forum with Trump and Clinton in 2016 somewhat of a practice round for the later televised debates. It was a moment for Lauer to prove his broadcast chops.

Instead, he revealed his own personal biases clearly steeped in misogyny. He spent approximately one-third of his allotted time with Clinton questioning her use of a private email server meaning he then had to rush through topics of actual importance, such as foreign policy and terrorism questions.” Writes Ms. Carrerio. As, the list of powerful men facing serious consequences for sexual misconduct allegations continues to grow, yet, the most powerful one of all, so far, faces none. This prompted us to go back in time, hold our noses while revisiting the infamous Access Hollywood tape. Misogyny sadly permeates from the Oval office. There it was, our Word Of The Year, Misogyny!

Remy Carreiro joins Norman B for the next edition of Life Elsewhere to talk about her article and our Word Of The Year: Misogyny.

Also in the program, new music from Australian, Stella Donnelly with Boys Will Be Boys, from her latest album, Thrush Metal. The singer-songwriter confronts a man who raped her friend and takes to task the accompanying victim-blaming. Donnelly recalls horrifying details like the young man’s father telling him “women rape themselves.”  Alex Stewart is originally from Toronto, she’s now based in Brooklyn and goes by the name, Aces. Her new single, Stranger came about when jet-lagged one night, improving at home with a video camera, she pretended to get ready to go out with someone she used to know, but had become a stranger. To round out the show, we hear Red from Bobby Kakouris, from Scotland. Bobby also performs with Alex McComas as Elizabeth Wolf.

Show #249

Three Topics

If you have been to the renown Art Basel, you would not be alone in finding it overwhelming, confusing, albeit intriguing. Londoner, Ryan Stanier felt the same, his experiences at Art Basel and other prestigious art fairs led him to believe there was a need for an alternative to the high-end, glossy, money-dominated events. So, a few years ago, Ryan founded The Other Art Fair which has become the leading artist fair to discover and buy directly from the very best emerging artistic talent. With fairs strongly established in the US, UK, and Australia, The Other Art Fair has grown with editions now in London, Bristol, Sydney, Melbourne, and now New York. Ryan Stanier joins Life Elsewhere to help us understand art today and, The Other Art Fair.

Donald Trump’s sexual harassment accusers hope President goes way of Weinstein

#MeTooCongress: women in politics take action in wake of Weinstein

These are the headers, for two recent articles in The Guardian by Lucia Graves. The talented writer returns to Life Elsewhere to talk about the ramifications of allegations of sexual misconduct. The list of the accused, from Hollywood to Capitol Hill and all points in between appears to show no sign of abating. Why is this happening now? Is this the result of living in the age of Trump? With the outcome of Tuesday’s elections are we seeing a national response to Trump and all he stands for? Don’t miss this intense discussion, plus you’ll hear host, Norman B talk about his encounter with unwanted sexual advance.

The musical interlude this week is from Perth, Australia, Stella Donnelly has a new single, Boys Will Be Boys, from her latest album, Thrush Metal. The singer-songwriter confronts a man who raped her friend and takes to task the accompanying victim-blaming. Donnelly recalls horrifying details like the young man’s father telling him “women rape themselves,” she stays measured and plainspoken. This effect is the most chilling thing about Boys Will Be Boys. Don’t miss it!
