the first goat to have opinions

sarah zedig is a video essayist, podcaster, and fanfiction author who dares to ask the question: what if a goat could talk in first person?

hi. i’m a transgender furry with pronouns (she/her, in fact) who likes to talk about media, gender politics, and storytelling. current projects include:

  • “let’s talk about stuff” -a youtube channel where i talk about stuff. currently investigating the lack of a materialist foundation in much contemporary media criticism; exploring the infinite sneaky ways that liberal ideology makes itself invisible both in art and in life; and understanding my own tendency towards self-destructive obsession with fictional universes.
  • “trans questioning / genderpunk” -an ever-evolving autobiographical slash current events slash interview podcast about living as a person with weirdgender in the context of the indoctrinated self trapped in a hegemonic neoliberal death cult called “the united states of america.” increasingly fixated on the undeniably eldritch qualities of capital in the here and now.
  • “godfeels” -an ongoing experimental homestuck fanfiction that starts with a depressed young man becoming a woman to mixed approval from her friends, and culminates in a macrocosmic war between every body and every mind. it’s a comedy, a slice-of-life drama, a space opera, a cosmic horror, a series of romances, a meditation on the self, an existential argument against copyright law, and an embrace of world-shattering queer love. it’s also got a dog in it

you know i know what i’m talking about because i went to writing school, film school, worked in the oklahoma film industry a while, and i’m literally a goat. if you wish to support my harried bleating, please deposit assorted grains (”dollars”) in the feed slot (”become a supporter” button) below.
