Musician Saffron A has always been an outsider. A songwriter with a clear sense of self, Saffron's clarity of purpose has often isolated her from the "in-crowd" but left her with a ton of creative fuel. She uses music to process and open conversations on tough stuff—sexual assault, trauma, and what it means to be truly resistant and resilient. In this ep, Saffron and Mica chat about why music has proved to be a more effective vehicle for justice than the actual justice system, how Saffron balances faith with feminism, and why a shaved head is a powerful thing!
