Episode 85: The Same Stuff as Stars (with Amanda Nguyen)

We never thought we'd do a single episode on both outer space and sexual assault, but that's because we hadn't met activist and aspiring astronaut Amanda Nguyen yet. She founded the organization Rise, to advocate for the rights of survivors of rape.

Did you know that in some states, untested rape kits can be thrown away after 30 days? Amanda tells us how legislation reflects rape culture, and how we can change this. When she's not busy fighting, Amanda is preparing herself for space travel. (Yup!) We talk about who we'd want to beam into the beyond, and remember that even in the darkest of times in this universe, we're never alone because we have each other. 

You can find out more about Amanda's organization at www.risenow.us.
