Evgenia Kovda. LA River. Feb 2021.
Evgenia at the LA River.

We’re about to become parents so this ep has serious breeder energy. We start off by talking about Evgenia’s recent great essay on “procreation horror” and then we move on, riffing on things like fertility under neoliberalism, Soviet bourgeois family life, dogs as baby replacements, and having children as a consumer choice.

—Yasha Levine

Notes: Evgenia mentioned Natalya Baranskaya, who wrote stories about what life was like for women in the Soviet Union. She also mentioned Eternal Eve, a history of gynecology.
