Delicious Ingredients

Season Four - Bayard Rustin

  • about 1 month ago

Bayard Rustin was a key, behind-the-scenes leader of the black civil rights movement—a proponent of nonviolent protest, a mentor to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the principal organizer of the landmark 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.  And he was gay and open about it, which had everything to do with why he remained in the background and is little known today in comparison to other leaders of the civil rights movement.Read Bayard Rustin’s 1987 New York Times obituary here.  It identifies his partner Walter Naegle as his “administrative assistant and adopted son.” To read Rustin’s own words, explore Time on Two Crosses: The Collected Writings of Bayard Rustin here. Rustin’s papers reside at the Library of Congress.PBS’s award-winning POV documentary Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin can be found here.For a biography of Rustin, check out John d’Emilio’s Lost Prophet: The Life and Times of Bayard Rustin here. Listen to this episode of the State of the Re:Union podcast to learn about Rustin’s indelible contributions to the Civil Rights Movement. PBS’s award-winning POV documentary Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin here.  Read Senator Strom Thurmond’s August 13, 1963, denunciation of Rustin in the congressional record here, starting on page 14836. The New York Times reported on Rustin’s rebuttal here. Rustin’s partner Walter Naegle was featured in a short film by Matt Wolf titled “Bayard and Me.” You can watch it here. In her interview with Rustin, Peg Byron inquires about Rustin’s recent D.C. visit with Black and White Men Together.  Learn more about the group here. Watch President Obama honor Bayard Rustin at the 2013 Presidential Medal of Freedom ceremony. Watch Walter Naegle accept the medal here.  Gay astronaut Sally Ride was honored alongside Rustin that same year; find out more about Ride here. Eric Marcus’s interview with Walter Naegle was conducted at the home he shared with Rustin, which in 2016 was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. You can see the building on the website of the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project here.  The webpage has some great photos of Rustin, including one in his apartment with his extensive cane collection.

This wasn't one of host Eric Marcus' archived interviews with gay rights icons, both well- and little-known, from the 80s and 90s, it was tape that Bayard Rustin's partner had saved from another interview - what an awesome find. Rustin played a key role in the civil rights movement but was never recognized for it, so I really loved hearing this missed piece of history.

Holy cow. 1) I'm glad I don't live in California, 2) I need to make an emergency preparedness kit STAT for a hurricane (which would be the emergency we'd most likely have here in Texas) and keep some water at my desk at work in case I end up stuck there, and 3) this is extremely well done, vascillating between stories of people who have survived earthquakes, expert advice, and a first-person walk through what you would actually be faced with after The Big One hits.

I professed my love repeatedly for Still Processing last year so I'm thrilled it's back, and it came back with an awesome first episode of the year mostly about Hart and how lame his apologies have been. But a giant bonus was host Jenna Wortham calling a childhood friend and apologizing for a wrong from decades ago - it was so powerful and absolutely encouraged me to make some apologies.

SBG 18: I Love Lucy

  • 3 months ago

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about why I Love Lucy should have been gay. Lucy and Ethel are the 1950s gal pals of our dreams. From working together at the candy factory, opening up their own business together, fighting over their own ship name (should it be Ethelu or Lucel?), snuggling on the roof together, wallpapering Lucy's living room in overalls and bandanas and trying to make a lesbian long distance relationship work, Lucy and Ethel originated some of our favorite lesbian tropes. Above all else, Lucille Ball and Vivian Vance are true feminist icons so why not be lesbian icons too? Follow along on Twitter @lezhangoutpod and Facebook and Instagram (@lezhangoutpod).

I picked a random episode from this show, so this wasn't the most recent one, but I loved this funny take on the gayness of I Love Lucy, or how it could have been improved if they just made Lucy and Ethel an out couple. The hosts have a great, fun and easy to listen to rapport.

SoulCycle: Julie Rice & Elizabeth Cutler

  • about 1 month ago

Before Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice met, they shared a common belief: New York City gyms didn't have the kind of exercise classes they craved, and each of them wanted to change that. A fitness instructor introduced them over lunch in 2005, and before the meal was done they were set on opening a stationary bike studio, with a chic and aspirational vibe. A few months later, the first SoulCycle opened in upper Manhattan. Today, SoulCycle has cultivated a near-tribal devotion among its clients, with studios across the United States and Canada. PLUS for our postscript "How You Built That," how "kid-preneur" Gabrielle Goodwin and her mom Rozalynn invented a double-face double snap barrette that doesn't slip out of little girls' hair, no matter how much they play around.

I appreciate a good "luck" story when it comes to starting a business, because it gives me hope not for myself, but for people who don't have a lot of money but have a killer idea they're super passionate about. I love those underdog success stories. Cutler and Rice also get very honest about their third partner.

Sikh-ing Mr Right

  • about 1 month ago

Min is determined to only marry a Sikh who wears a turban. But after a decade of looking her family and friends want her to widen her search by the time she turns 38. As the only daughter her mum and dad just want her to be happy but also married and settled with her own family and they don’t mind who she marries. Min’s mum thinks not only should her daughter abandon her search for a turban wearing Sikh but she should widen her search further to include non–Sikh’s. With only three months to go before Min turns 38 the clock is ticking, will Min consider someone without a turban let alone out of faith? The producer is Perminder Khatkar.

I love this story that's really more than just about a woman who has a certain attraction to men who wear turbans. It's about the judgment and pressure from family and friends regarding something that is so very personal - who we fall in love with. I loved when Min explained why she is attracted to the turban.

I typically stay away from true crime that has to do with kids - I started listening to Cold but just couldn't handle it knowing the outcome; hits too close to home as I have two young boys. But there's something different about Broken Harts that I can't quite put my finger on yet after listening to just two episodes - I definitely want to listen to the whole thing, and I'm incensed at how it sounds like these adopted children were treated, but it's palatable and for that I'm glad.

Another home run from Other Men Need Help (I will continue to tell you as often as possible that you should be listening to this show about men and their insecurities; I'm telling you, it has the potential to neutralize some toxic masculinity). This time host Mark Pagán talks about his own brother, who was many years older than him, and with whom he had a unique and special relationship.
