Dear Friends,

In this episode of the Likeville podcast, we talk with Kimberley Manning, head of the Simone de Beauvoir Institute, about why she’s leaving academia for politics; why she chose the Liberal Party (as opposed to the NDP); how her prolonged study of China’s Great Leap Forward has shaped her view of progressivism; trans rights and the founding of Gender Creative Kids; the role of faith, compromise, and activism in political life, and much else.
