In today’s episode, we’re joined by tanner menard, who leads the organizing team at Equality Arizona. We reflect on political polarization, personal reinvention, and frustration with labels; we talk about internet culture, but also about connecting with nature; we look back on how local progressive organizing in Phoenix has changed over the past decade, and talk about their experience in the poetry community both as the host of the Queer Poetry Salon and a graduate of the MFA program at Northern Arizona University.
