In brief: This week’s interviews couldn’t be on more different topics, but they connect to remind us that “straight, cis, white male” shouldn’t be the only human description of a person deserving of life, liberty, and whatever happiness they can grasp in their short time here on earth. Tina Vasquez is back on to discuss DACA and immigration and Suzanna Weiss is on to discuss the genderedness of pleasure.
