Cemetery Confessions: A Goth Talk Podcast

Despite historically loathing and delineating itself from ‘mainstream’ society, goth culture and identity often finds itself interpolating broader systemic values. On todays episode we will explore those behaviors and ideologies that seep in from the systemic framework of patriarchy and white supremacy. We’ll also examine the subtle yet pernicious impact capitalism has on our relationships and hierarchies within goth.

Our guests this month are Aimee (Mixcloud, IG, FB) Ellen (Etsy, Modeling, YouTube) and Sienna (IG)!
