EP. 219 — Overcoming Domestic Abuse with Chelsea Devantez

Jameela is joined by writer, comedian, actor, and director Chelsea Devantez (The Problem with Jon Stewart, Girls5Eva) to talk about the unspoken mundane details of domestic abuse, how to spot difficult power dynamics in relationships (and what to do about it) and how she always finds the humor from dark situations throughout her life. Chelsea also talks about what she learned from the drag community, having Jon Stewart as a boss and the importance of female friendships and community.

 

This episode includes discussion on topics like men’s violence against women and complex post-traumatic stress disorder, so please take care while listening.
