Rookie

The Roadmap for Liberation, feat. Janet Mock

EP13
RELEASED 06/20/2017

This week, host Tavi Gevinson talks to writer, podcast host and transgender rights activist Janet Mock at The Strand bookstore in New York City. Mock’s latest book ‘Surpassing Certainty: What My Twenties Taught Me’ is a memoir tracing her path to adulthood through college and first love.

And Author Roxane Gay answers questions from listeners for our recurring segment, Ask a Grown, about being politically aware without burning out and identifying as a feminist without adhering to labels. Plus, Rookie contributor Victoria Chiu brings us a Life Skill: How to be an active listener.

Each week on the Rookie Podcast, we'll interview people we admire: artists, writers, musicians, filmmakers, activists. We'll also spotlight the work of Rookie readers (now listeners!) and contributors. We'll discuss creativity, pop culture, feminism, activism, self-care, love, friendship, and more.
