28 – Models of Masculinity w. Emanuel Dubbeldam & Sophie Gareau-Brennan

2 returning guests on this episode! Emanuel Dubbeldam & Sophie Gareau-Brennan are here to have a chat about masculinity and what makes a man.

We break down what it takes to be a man the only way we knew how: by using the 5-line chorus of Mulan‘s ‘I’ll Make a Man Out of You’ as our starting model of masculinity. We continue to discuss the gender politics & sexual identity issues raised in the film via the Internet classic: Am I Gay?: A Journey of Self Discovery with Shang (seriously, who made this meme-gem?!). We also talk about the various real-life or fictional men & women in our lives who helped shape our perceptions of masculinity & femininity.

Go follow Emanuel on Twitter and also go follow Sophie’s Twitter for upcoming surprises!

You should also check out Emanuel’s first appearance on WenghTalk when we went over Transgender Questions.

17 – #YEGTheatreStats w. Samantha Jeffery

Professional theatre artist Samantha Jeffery is here to discuss her pilot project: #YEGTheatreStats – a professional theatre database of jobs in the Edmonton theatre industry based on gender.

We go over how Sam collects and presents her data; the nuance of creating categories and sub-categories in order to make her spreadsheet accurate, yet readable; and we also talk about how vital a public database of this sort is for those seeking to recognize their hiring trends within the Edmonton theatre community.

You can read the spreadsheet here (https://jefferysl.wixsite.com/yegtheatrestats) and, if it’s within your power, you can support Sam and this project by donating to her Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/Yegtheatrestats).
If you’re in the Calgary area: check out OUTReels (https://www.fairytalesfilmfest.com/outreels/), a non-profit film-based diversity education program that does wonderful work.
