A podcast by Ambivalently Yours
Co-produced by Hannah McCasland
Rebelliously Tiny is a podcast about the subtle emotions that draw us together. For the last five years, I have been exploring my ambivalence and feminist questions by posting pink drawings on my Tumblr blog. Eventually, people started responding to my work by sharing their personal stories with me and asking me for advice, often anonymously. Since I’m in no way qualified to tell anyone what to do, I began answering these messages with ambivalent drawings. Today, I have over 1000 messages waiting in my inbox, and I’ve decided to ask for a little help responding to them. Each episode of this podcast will focus on one question, which I will discuss with someone I admire and trust, who I met through or because of the Internet. Our goal will not be to provide answers, but to explore the tender emotions we are often told are unimportant while highlighting the value of talking to each other instead of about each other. I will mark each episode by creating a drawing inspired by both the initial question and the conversation it sparked.
In a world that teaches us that strength is loud, harsh and masculine, this is a place for those of us whose struggle is both impossibly large and rebelliously tiny.
