This last summer, ‘The Heart’ put out a mini season called “No”. It’s an exploration of personal boundaries, consent, and sexual coercion as told through host Kaitlin Prest’s own experiences.
In the first episode, we meet Kaitlin in her youth as she learns to navigate her first sexual experiences along with the confusion of her desires. Kaitlin learns how to decline unwanted sexual advances and the difficulty of advocating for her needs. But what is she to do when her words are ignored and her agency is taken from her? You can find the entire season here.
What happens when doing what you want to do means giving up who you really are? Radiolab travels to Venice with reporters Kristen Clark and David Conrad, where they meet gondolier Alex Hai. On the winding canals in the hidden parts of Venice, they learn about the nearly 1000-year old tradition of the Venetian Gondolier, and how the global media created a 20-year battle between that tradition and a supposed feminist icon.
