  1. Concerning “Stranger Things”: If you went to the “Stranger Things” experience at SDCC, then one of the first things you saw was a shrine to Barb….because the showrunners heard us and wanted acknowledge us.

  2. Got to see Kandi Mosset speak this weekend at PowerShift in Melbourne and she’s amazing! So inspiring to see Indigenous women fighting the fossil fuel industry. I was almost crying when she was talking about miners destroying her land.
