Where we Know From:

Sara Ahmed, Complaint, Duke University Press, 2021.

Don't Be A Karen, Be A Kohar 

Season 1, Episode 9

Hey, friends! In this episode we're talking about Sara Ahmed's term: complaint!  An idea that names how we learn about power from those who dare to complain about it.

Before we give you the tl;dr (too long; didn't read) of Ahmed's Complaint, Iman shares her own experience of becoming the problem when she complained about a problem. We discuss the inevitably of encountering weirdos when you're a part of capitalist institutions, the vulnerability it takes to speak up, the importance of whisper networks, and our love for the people who create safe harbors for us in stormy weather.

As always, we close out with our half-baked thoughts. The segment where we share ideas we haven't fleshed out, but stand fully behind. You'll just have to listen to the episode to hear those.
