The Hurry Up the Cakes Podcast 2022 Philippine Election Special

This is for the cynic, the optimist, the disenfranchised, the rebel, and the Filipino voter.

My anxiety and trepidation concerning the 2022 National Election (and the one from 2016, for that matter) have been bubbling to the surface recently, so I decided to hash them out with my dear friend Mia Marci. Mia is an educator, a writer, a cynic at heart, a foul-mouthed Christian, and one of my favorite people in real life and on the internet, where she chronicles her journey of “decoñofication” and, more recently, her thoughts and feelings about the pursuit of justice alongside the Laban ng Masa coalition. We talk about our struggles during the 2016 Election season, we articulate the journey of choosing her candidate in Ka Leody De Guzman and mine in Leni Robredo, and we attempt to process what it might mean if the villain wins next week. All of this and more in this very special one-off episode of the Hurry Up the Cakes Podcast!

This episode was recorded on Star Wars Day 2022.
