Episode 05: Pride Month 2021 Roundtable Discussion

In celebration and recognition of Pride Month 2021, the Access FSU podcast team decided to invite a couple of guests for a round-table discussion about LGBTQ+ issues, the queer community, LGBTQ+ people with disabilities, representation, and self-perception. Beth Thompson from the Sexual Health Coordinator in the Center for Health Advocacy and Wellness (CHAW) returns as a guest on the show and is joined by the OAS's own Carla Larriviere Rosas to talk with hosts KimBoo York and Shannon Bernick about their own experiences, opinions, and insights into what it means to live in the intersection of identities.

Episode 04: Finding the ME in Social Media 

Social Media and social network in the modern era are ubiquitous — on our computers, our tablets, our phones, and even the physical environment around us in the shape of "smart" devices. Sometimes it is hard to remember that social media is just one tool we can use to live happier, more productive lives, while also not realizing the hidden costs that can come with it in the form of distraction, demotivation, and even depression. Shannon explores the latest research on social media use among college students and presents healthy ways to manage social media use long term, while KimBoo puts a lens over what's behind attempts by social media giants like Facebook and Twitter to monopolize your time.

This episode, hosts KimBoo York and Shannon Bernick interview two important figures at Florida State University on the intersectionality of gender and disability in regards to sexual health: Sarah Lull Castillo is the director of the Victim's Advocacy Program (VAP); and Beth Thompson is the sexual health coordinator with the Center for Health and Wellness (CHAW) at Florida State.
