A Life

A weekly podcast about asexuality

A Life #72: Media Image

Download (MP3)

A brand new show! Is that even possible? Apparently.

This time the panelists talk about the image that media uses to portray asexuality.

  1. Hello Henrik! (sorry if this is a bit inappropriate)
    I followed you here from the “Unscrewed & Illuminated” podcast, & I’m glad I did :)
    I was disappointed to see that your personal site is entirely in Finnish :(
    I’ve used GoogleTranslate to get the gist of it & the process was quite funny.
    also, your video doesn’t play for me :(

    Hello Vlad!
    You sound very nice & you’re doing a good job (most of the time) of bringing Henrik back to the subject of discussion when he goes on a rant :)

    Keep the good work guys & I promise that my future comments will be more relevant to the podcasts.

  2. (actually regarding the podcast)
    1. – Henrik, since you’ve mentioned your transition & it sounds quite interesting, you should keep us posted on the process :)
    2. – Excellent of you guys to post the relevant links!
    3. – As someone who likes “cheap” & unconventional romance stories (though I mostly call them “fanfiction”), I wouldn’t be deterred by such a cover or the examples of article illustrations that were discussed. Mostly because I don’t have high expectations from things like this… (though I’m not sure if I’d be willing to pay money for writings of somewhat questionable quality).
    As someone of the asexual spectrum, personally I am not offended by such a representation. But again, it’s ‘cos I’m a pessimist & I assume things could always be worse.

    ~ Cheers

  4. Perhaps a bit late, as someone who’s actually getting published in the anthology could you give the contents a chance? I agree that the cover is kind of awful but I’d like to think that my writing is terrible based on the cover.
