Producer Chana Joffe-Walt fills in for Ira Glass this week. We hear from a person you don’t normally hear from in these kinds of stories — the partner of a man who has been accused of sexual harassment.
Growing up, Deanna is told that relationships with men won’t be easy: that men are dumb and she’ll have to make sense of things for them. Throughout her twenties, this proves true.
Alternet editors try to figure out what to make of Deanna’s odd behavior at an all-staff dinner. (3 minutes)
When Onnesha asks Don for a raise, he asks her a weird question.
