Adding to the feminist discussion one podcast at a time. Every other week, Natalie and Kelly bring you a (generally heated) conversation exploring current events, pop culture, history, and media.
20: Winter Olympics - Surya Bonaly - Reading Roundup

Surviving Trump's America #11: Sexual Coercion, Consent, & Rape Culture
We're back with a super long episode to make up for our absence!
In this installment of Surviving Trump's America, we talk about the Aziz Ansari date we've all been on, how pervasive coercion is in women's relationships, how we are socialized to ignore and minimize woman's feelings and desires, and how all of these things and everything in between contributes to rape culture.
Send your thoughts on coercion, consent, or anything we talked about to email@example.com.

19: Goal Setting & 2017 Faves
Hello 2018! This week the Furies bring you a cliche new year episode. Kelly JeaniusTM shares her proven goal setting (and achieving!) strategy, which, unsurprisingly, is very similar to the goal setting process of Fortune 500 companies. Then we reflect on the books, movies, and tv shows we (mostly) enjoyed in 2017. Spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
18: White Santa - Crazy Ex-Girlfriend - Aging
In this week's episode, Natalie and Kelly talk about the absurdity of some people's preference for White Santa. Then we have a MAJOR SPOILER discussion about Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (spoilers through S03e06 "Josh is Irrelevant"). We wrap up with some thoughts about aging as a woman and some of the complexities we're beginning to observe and experience as late-twenty-somethings.
White Accountability pt 2
We're FINALLY bringing you part 2 of our White Accountability series. This time we focus on tactics for breaking white silence, the spectrum of racism, and how to have conversations with the problematic white people in your community. We use the word "journey" about 60,000 times.
If you have suggestions for topics to cover in our next installment of the White Accountability series, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hollywood - Blade Runner 2049 - Glow
Kelly and Natalie discuss the outpouring of allegations in Hollywood. Content/Trigger warning for rape, pedophilia, assault, etc, as we do mention some of the allegations. We then have a spoiler discussion of the new Blade Runner movie, including an examination of how it portrays women. We wrap up with a recommendation to watch the Netflix show Glow, starring Alison Brie.
