"I try to balance politics with less serious content like 2 Dope Queens, Pop Culture Happy Hour, and Bitch Sesh. Each of these shows are run by smart women who can talk about feminism, but also be silly and enjoy things like the real housewives shows. It is so critical to my mental health because I otherwise could not get up in the morning and face the realities of the world right now."
