UpFront PM

UpFront PM – September 8, 2021

On today’s show:

We discuss the Taliban’s recently installed interim government in Afghanistan with Khury Petersen-Smith (@kpYES), Michael Ratner Middle East Fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies.


A media campaign by sex workers and allies successfully forced the online subscription-based content sharing platform OnlyFans to reverse its decision to ban explicit content. Siri Dahl (@thesiridahl), an adult film performer joins us to discuss how the platform helps sex workers to work safely during the pandemic, and the groups who applied pressure on payment processors to restrict explicit content.


An excerpt that comes from an interview that first aired on August 17, 2020. It was produced by former UpFront intern Bee Soll (@bee_soll) who spoke with Mickey Mod (@themickeymod) an adult film performer, and Creative Director for Content at Kink.com.
