Is “queer” inherently subversive? The unnamed whiteness of Porpentine

  1. This makes me think a lot about discussions around the media of radio and podcasting. Podcasts have the unique ability to be “intimate.” To go straight from the mouth of the podcaster into that of the listener with no space. They are in your ears just like video games and interactive texts are at your fingers. But who has this power to be intimate, to traverse this space? Who gets listened to and gets a platform? “Public” radio is very homogeneous along class and race lines. The voice is not an unmarked tool even though it is detached from the visual appearance of a body.
