Welcome to The Intersection of Things!

This is Marianela Ramos Capelo and Ruth Coustick-Deal, and this is our podcast.

We're two friends separated by vast amounts of water, and eight hours of time, bringing you friendly conversations about technology and human lives on the Internet, all with an intersectional feminist twist.

Each episode we catch up, drink wine or coffee, and then tackle a different theme: from Consent to Work; from Outrage to Libraries.

Together we discuss the unseen intersections of that topic: with the Internet, with gender, with race, and sexuality. We also often invite badass guests to join us for these chats and bring perspectives that are not being heard elsewhere in the white male dominated world of technology.

New episodes are released every third Thursday, and are available from wherever you get your audio delights, including iTunes, Soundcloud, Stitcher, Acast, and Spotify. If you have questions for us, email thingsintersect@gmail.com to get in touch.
