On this episode, we’re talking to the editor-in-chief of Bitch Media, Evette Dionne. Evette offers some insight on a topic even we struggle with: preserving your mental health while navigating news media and pop culture.

As a black feminist and writer, Evette helps us define black and intersectional feminism and how it differs from feminism through the white lens. She also sheds a light on her experience as a former HBCU student, the good, the not so good, and how attending an HBCU be a form of community care.

She also offers some guidance on how to manage that relationship with your problematic favorites. In her opinion, we must focus on the person being called out just as much as we focus on the agendas of the outlets doing that calling out. Are mainstream journalists educated and experienced enough to handle intersectional news reporting?

Be sure to keep up with Bitch Media on their social media. Their podcast can be found here: Propoganda BackTalk. You can also connect with Evette (@freeblackgirl) on Instagram and Twitter. As always, you can find this episode and much more on our social media @SelfCareSundays.
