Phoebe Maltz Bovy (@tweetertation) is my guest today. She’s the author of The Perils of “Privilege”: Why Injustice Can’t be Solved by Accusing Others of Advantage, published in 2017.

Her essays on privilege and politics have appeared in The New Republic, The Atlantic, The Washington Post, and other publications. She also co-hosts the heterodox show Feminine Chaos with Kat Rosenfeld, available in streaming video on bloggingheads tv and as a podcast. We’ll be talking about her book and some of her more recent articles on privilege.

Here is a transcript of this episode.
