Racism and Recovery with Jessica Hoppe

Feminist Hotdog
Oct 22, 2020 • Season 4, Episode 1

Show Notes


Feminist Hotdog is back! In this episode, I had the privilege of speaking to writer Jessica Hoppe about her experience as a first-generation Latina woman with Indigenous roots navigating the recovery landscape. Jessica is using her storytelling skills—and what she learned from getting and staying sober during the Trump era, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the recent uprisings in defense of Black lives—to talk about why recovery communities must acknowledge and address racism in healing spaces. Whether recovery is part of your life or not, you won’t want to miss out on Jessica's wisdom or her inspiring story! (Music by Ava Luna and Loyalty Freak Music.)
