Nia King's trying to figure out if her dream of making a living as an art activist is beyond reach. In this podcast, she seeks advice from other political queer artists, trans artists, and artists of color who seem to have figured out how to make art and make rent without compromising their values.

Love Corazón is an incredibly wise (and accomplished) young woman who has just published her first book, Trauma Queen, about surviving childhood sexual abuse. In this interview, she shares some of her wisdom on how survivors can support each other, when "harm reduction" isn't enough, and the tyranny of self-care. Highlights include:

- Why she quit sex work,

- How she got her book deal, and

- Why we need to shift from a paradigm of "self-care" to "communal care."
