    Jaye gives her thoughts on the recently-implemented Texas law restricting abortion past six weeks gestation. The discussion includes maternal mortality, adoption, surveillance culture and more. How is the assault by Texas and other states on abortion rights related to the recent attacks on "critical race theory" and efforts to suppress the vote?

  • Theology professor, author, and African Methodist Episcopal elder Obery M. Hendricks Jr., Ph.D. joins Jaye on this episode of Potstirrer Podcast to discuss his historically rich and theologically informative book Christians Against Christianity: How Right-Wing Evangelicals Are Destroying Our Nation and Our Faith. This enriching conversation includes discussion of the racially conservative roots of right-wing evangelicalism and its effects on Black Americans, the ways in which right-wing evangelical Christians have compromised their own stated aims for the sake of political power, social justice versus "biblical" justice, and more.

  • This multi-episode series is about efforts to suppress or limit the vote in certain communities across the United States in order to achieve specific outcomes. In Part 2, Jaye discusses the history of voting rights in the United States based on sex from the founding until the immediate aftermath of the 19th Amendment, which prohibited the government from restricting women from the ballot box. The woman suffrage movement in the United States, as the defining issue in first wave feminism, was that of both diversity and internal conflict. Jaye discusses the intersection of sex, race and ethnicity, and socioeconomic class in the direction of the woman suffrage movement, and how events at the time led to the movement intentionally sidelining Black women in its quest for the franchise.

  • In this public release of a bonus episode originally released on Patreon in December 2019, Jaye discusses the life of Dr. Timothy Leary, the "Godfather of LSD." How did someone so apolitical (in the height of an extremely political era!) make political enemies, and what made President Richard Nixon call him "the most dangerous man in America?"

This riveting conversation includes themes that are a part of Dr. Boyd's book, teaching and activism, such as understanding one's "race story," how to overcome the reticence of some white Americans to engage with and discuss race, "white saviors," anti-racism, solutions that engage and transform the culture, and more.

  • CONTENT WARNING: The following episode includes brief discussion of physical violence and sexual assault. Listener discretion is advised.

    This multi-episode series is about efforts to suppress or limit the vote in certain communities across the United States in order to achieve specific outcomes. In Part 1, Jaye discusses the history of the vote in the United States as it pertains to race and ethnicity from the founding through the Jim Crow segregation period. She argues that there has always been tension between the democratic impulse to expand the electorate, and the anti-democratic desire to limit the electorate to more powerful, privileged groups. Nothing is new under the sun.

    In this public release of a bonus episode originally released on Patreon in August 2019, Jaye discusses the divorce announcement of Joshua Harris, the author of Christian self-help book I Kissed Dating Goodbye, and his wife, singer Shannon Bonne, and their apparent ongoing deconstruction from evangelical Christianity. Are people who hold harmful beliefs capable of change? Jaye acknowledges her own deconstruction from toxic theology, and reflects on two people who influenced her life journey and departure from evangelical Christianity. These two people, who both passed away in the summer of 2019, were instrumental in setting her on the road to becoming a better human in both heart and mind.

  • The Atlanta spa shootings on March 16, 2021 were one of many large-scale shooting incidents that occurred after a lull in mass gun violence due to the pandemic. But this spree shooting stuck out due to the various issues the tragedy touched on, including gun control and the Second Amendment, stereotyping and discrimination against Asian people, racialized misogyny, policing biases, and toxic teachings within evangelical Christianity. Jaye discusses each of these issues in light of this incident, centering the victims and making the case for an intersectional approach to such horrifying events.

  • CONTENT WARNING: This episode contains graphic descriptions of physical violence, physical suffering and death. Listener discretion is advised.

    In this public release of a Patreon bonus episode originally released in July 2019, Jaye discusses graphic images of suffering and oppression. Should these be protected by content warnings? The episode dives into the history of violent images and how unaltered visuals moved many Americans to act politically. She also explores the downsides of consuming violent imagery, particularly on mental health, and why content warnings are used to alert audiences to graphic content.

  • It is the middle of President Joe Biden's first 100 days in office, and his administration has been hard at work attempting to end the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States, as well as other policy priorities. But actions on immigration-related policy, as it relates to a shift in direction from Donald Trump, have been more modest. Jaye discusses Biden's ending of the Muslim Travel Ban and the lifting of restrictions for allowing unaccompanied minors into the US, among other immigration policies. Has Biden gone far enough to reverse Trump-era immigration policies, or is his centrism getting in the way of doing more?

  • In this public release of a Patreon bonus episode originally released in January 2020, Jaye tells the story of the 1969 University of Wyoming Cowboys football team. Fourteen African-American players on the team were dismissed by their head coach in the middle of the 1969 season for asking permission to protest. How is the Black 14 incident, and the aftermath, instructive for understanding social protest by athletes today?

  • How could seemingly normal Americans end up becoming right-wing extremists? Jaye discusses the role of extremist Christianity as a gateway to radical right-wing movements. Does the fact that Christianity is the dominant religion in the United States blind us to the possibility of family, friends and others we associate with becoming radicalized?

  • The year 2021 has begun in the United States with a tragic attack on democracy. On January 6, pro-Trump rioters who were taking part in a protest stormed the US Capitol Building in Washington DC, during a joint session of Congress held to certify the results of the 2020 presidential election. The Capitol attack, incited by the rhetoric of Donald Trump and other Republican politicians, led to the deaths of five people, including a Capitol police officer who was murdered by rioters. It has led to many questions about possible Trumpist infiltration of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, racial and political bias in how we view the act of protest, the health of American democracy, and many more.

    Ervin Johnson II, cofounder of Shining Otaku Comics, joins Jaye to discuss the Capitol Riots and the surrounding issues, as well as what happens next - both to Donald Trump and to America. This informal conversation also includes some levity - as sometimes we need to laugh to keep from crying.

    *Correction: Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff are the first Black and Jewish US senator respectively representing the State of Georgia.

  • In the fourth annual Potstirrer Podcast War on Christmas Special, Jaye reflects on the strange, horrifying year that was 2020. Would a decently better response to the pandemic have netted Donald Trump a second term? And does incoming president Joe Biden have the fight in him to take on the groups who are seeking to end democracy in the United States?

  • In this flashback bonus episode - originally a two-parter first released in May and June of 2019, Jaye shares her Top Five Terrible Humans List. These are influential Americans, dead or alive, who made a negative contribution to their sphere of influence during their lifetime. In this episode, Jaye discusses her purely, 100 percent subjective criteria, dishonorable mentions, and the full list of Terrible Humans. Neither Donald Trump nor Mike Pence can be found on the list, because that's way too easy. But listen in to see who does make the list!

  • The 2020 US general election has taken place, and after days of counting in several swing states, former Vice-President Joe Biden has won the election decisively over Donald Trump. However, the expected gains for Democrats in Congress - the "blue wave" - were not realized. Why did this result occur? Jaye details what she believes is the real reason why centrist Democrats are blaming progressives and black activists for the unmet expectations in Congress.

    Meanwhile, Trump has yet to concede the presidential election to Biden, and has pushed the courts and state legislatures to set aside the election results in favor of gifting him a second term, citing "fraud" that has yet to be proven in a court of law. Are Trump's efforts a sign of a soft coup, or a grift? And should Americans be concerned about democracy, even as it appears Trump is failing in his efforts?

  • The 2020 US general election is coming up, and it's time to get ready! Jaye discusses political polling - including why the 2016 presidential poll predictions were not as much of a failure as it has been reported in the press. Will 2020 be a repeat of 2016? Also, Jaye discusses the current landscape and provides guidance in case of a Donald Trump victory or should Joe Biden win the election.

  • In the runup to the 2020 US general election, many events have occurred on local, state and federal levels that point to an authoritarian slide for the United States. Jaye discusses some of these events, including the presidential and vice-presidential debates, the plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, the Kentucky grand jury decision in the Breonna Taylor case, Donald Trump's ban of "critical race theory" in public schools, and the rushed efforts to confirm staunch conservative Amy Coney Barrett to the US Supreme Court in advance of the election. Focusing on the example set by the Christian Right, Jaye makes the case for progressives voting for Joe Biden in this election, and warns that on this year's ballot is the fate of this democratic republic.
