Accusations vs. Allegations Podcast Review

Although, the beginning of the podcast started off a mess, the rest of the podcast went pretty smoothly from there. We began to find our footing a little and talked about the day’s topic “Rape” and “Gender Roles”. We started the conversation talking about our opinions on the #metoo and the #timesup movement. We talked about how despicable the act of rape is, and then went on to talk about the double standards of rape between men and women. In which we discussed that if a man if raped, society looks down upon him and pretty much calls into question, his manhood. Yet, if a woman is raped, the perpetrator is demonized regardless of innocence. As a result of this discussion, at about the seventeen minute mark we begin to shift into the stereotypical gender roles for both men and women. This conversation goes on for another seventeen minutes. We go on to take a break at about the thirty-three minute mark and brought in a female perspective on the subject. When we returned from break, Andy shared an interesting statistic with us and posed a question to our female cohost. Our female cohost goes on to answer the question she and Andy had an interesting back and forth for about fifteen minutes. The conversation then transforms into another conversation of gender roles for another eight minutes. The show goes on to close with Andy’s final thoughts on the topic discussion as well as our female cohost.

Even though the conversation started off clunky, we rebounded well in the middle and end. As stated before, this topic was a bit touchy and tad bit controversial, but we need these types of conversations to happen in order to grow mentally. I think we tackled this subject matter really well and hopefully we can grow from this and deliver better content for you guys.
