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

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