November’s episode features a discussion on the politics of laughter with Delia Casadei, Assistant Professor of Music at the University of California Berkeley. Gender Jawn host Maria Murphy and Casadei discuss the social reproductive labor of laughter, how laughter articulates political unknowns, the Feminist killjoy practice of withholding the social reproductive labor of laughing, and laughter that renders unrecognized labor audible.
