PostBourgie Podcast #2: Addicted To Bourgie

We’re back and at it again. PostBourgie: The Podcast, Episode 2: “Addicted to Bourgie.”

G.D., blackink, and I are joined by special guests, writer and photographer Syreeta McFadden, and Latoya Peterson from Racialicious and Jezebel. We chop it up about Obama’s first State of The Union address, Chris Matthews’ response to the address, and That Quote in a recent NYT piece on educated women and marriage.

And now the podcast is up in the iTunes Store. You can access it directly here, and, most importantly, subscribe. (Note: still trying to figure out why the art won’t display. If you have any suggestions, e-mail us.)

You can also listen to it here on the blog (but subscribe, anyway!). Click once to play, click again to download.

  • This podcast was great. So great, in fact, that when I closed my eyes, I forgot you all were black.

    Having a good number of years in a third world state (Wyoming) where the only real viable economic engine is to take things from the ground and ship them elsewhere, I can tell you far more about “clean coal” than I wish I ever knew.

    But there are folks who really believe in it and think it’s the savior. I don’t think the conversation is going away anytime soon, because the real issue here is about doing things the way we’ve always done them, to ensure the people who’ve always benefitted continue to do so.

    Obama supported clean coal all along, and poured money into a clean coal project through stimulus funds. He talked about it as a mid-term solution to make what we emit cleaner and reduce dependency on foreign oil, and added it in addition to long-term solutions like renewable energy. Not that I support it — I don’t think any coal is clean — but that’s probably why you didn’t immediately hear a gigantic uproar from environmental groups. It’s not a change from what he said as a candidate.

      Right. The only stance he seemed to walk back from his candidacy was being wholly against offshore drilling, but I may be misremembering.

      • but he didn’t flip on offshore drilling. he floated it in the SOTU speech in a pretty vague way; it was hardly a commitment.

      • here’s the line:

        “But to create more of these clean energy jobs, we need more production, more efficiency, more incentives. … It means making tough decisions about opening new offshore areas for oil and gas development.”

        The wording there is deliberately noncommittal.

      • quadmoniker

        I think his objections to off-shore drilling were equally noncommittal. Like, it’s not the whole answer.
