This preview of Backstage (Basic Folk's bonus episodes) features the premiere of a new song from Jean Rohe (also of the duo Robinson & Rohe) called "Animal," which tells of her experience with abortion. After the song, I'm joined by Jean and Abby Minor, board member at Abortion Conversation Projects. Check out the full episode by contributing to Basic Folk. Links below!

Editor's note: This conversation was recorded before we knew about the leak of the Supreme Court draft opinion to overturn abortion rights. Although the timing of this release is coincidental, we're honored to be able to meet this difficult moment with a nuanced conversation about abortion experiences, creative process, and the many ways that songwriters and artists approach stigmatized subjects.
