Radio Segments

As a volunteer for Radio GAG, Pacifica WBAI's weekly gun violence prevention show, I'm producing segments, writing scripts, and occasionally co-hosting the live show. Radio GAG airs Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. on WBAI 99.5 FM NYC.

Social Media, Hate, and Mass Shootings

March 26, 2019

Produced and co-hosted by Maria Luisa Tucker and Virginia Vitzthum
What should we do about people who broadcast their hate online? Should they be allowed to own guns? We interview Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams about his controversial proposal for law enforcement to review social media accounts of prospective gun owners. Plus: A lawsuit from Sandy Hook families moves forward; New Zealand bans assault rifles; and the U.S. Senate holds a hearing on red flag laws. We remember Joyce Fienberg, who was killed at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.

Will Gun Policy Affect the Vote in Upstate New York?

Produced by Maria Luisa Tucker and Virginia Vitzthum

Coming Soon

The How to Be a Badass podcast is a practical guide for confronting life’s bullshit without apology. In each episode, I’ll interview a woman who has developed a uniquely badass way of tackling a specific challenge: how to respond to street harassment, what to say to a mansplaining co-worker, how to preserve our daughter’s natural badassness before it’s socialized out of her. Listeners will get real advice for dealing with everyday sexism—and other -isms. I’ll try out that advice myself in first-person segments that will be sometimes funny and always instructive.
