Author, Poet, and Activist: Sunu Chandy

In this episode host Emily McGranachan and co-host Dakota Fine meet with Sunu Chandy and discuss her recently completed book of poetry My Dear Comrades. On the pod, Sunu reads three poems and gives careful thought to her work and life as a lawyer, mom, wife, daughter, and outspoken member of the LGBTQ+ community.

We discuss: being the child of immigrants, fertility issues, adoption, misassumptions about identity, and being a parent and a caretaker.
