Sinister Myth

An education podcast from Department of English

Sinister Myth challenges cultural mythologies about sexuality in the West, because so often they encourage, perpetuate, or foster violence against women and minorities. The series is made up of interviews with writers, academics, and people working on community projects. Alongside the interviews, the series also includes “Sinister Bitesize” which offer short soundbites from experts with advice on allyship and more, and there will also be “Sinister Keywords,” which feature short conversations about language, and how words can encourage or harm minority groups.

Sinister Myth was generated through an Ohio State Affordable Learning Exchange (ALX) Grant, and it was created by Zoë Brigley Thompson and Brendan Walsh. The views, information, or opinions expressed during the Sinister Myth podcast series are solely those of the individuals involved and do not necessarily represent those of the Ohio State University and its employees.
