On this edition of the weekly beef, Lisa checks in on her homework from Revolution from Within and we have a very special guest: Dr. Nikita T. Hamilton!
Dr. Nikita T Hamilton is a staff writer on Freeform’s The Bold Type as well as an actress and comedian. She also hosts The Whisper Network, a podcast that delves into Hollywood jobs and the industry’s open secrets, and tries to shed light on the intersection between academia and industry.
This minisode is all about privilege and self-help. How does it affect the industry as a whole? What’s the makeup of the self-help industry and why does it look like that? Where do we think marginalized people are going for help? How are they figuring out self-care? Are there ways to make things more accessible/useful to everyone?
