'Starting a Riot'

Thirty years ago, a movement called riot grrrl started in the Pacific Northwest. It wasn't just music – it was politics, feminism, culture and zines. And we're still feeling its effects today. This podcast tells the history of riot grrrl: why it started here in the Pacific Northwest, and what its lasting impact has been. And it focuses on the stories that haven’t really been told as part of the history of the movement. We’ll hear from people on the margins, people who felt left out, and the people who insisted on being part of the conversation anyway.

'Dying For A Fight'

"Dying For A Fight," the second installment in Somethin’ Else’s "The Fault Line" series, investigates the killing of Sean Kealiher, an anti-fascist and anarchist. In 2019, months before the racial justice uprising and daily protests that would bring Portland international attention, Kealiher was killed while leaving a bar that was a known hangout for the city's anti-fascists. Nearly two years later, his homicide remains unsolved, and his mother Laura Kealiher believes police hatred for her son, and his politics, is the reason why.
