    Feminist Utopia E83: Bye Bye New York Times

    We are DONE! People on the right often complain about how lefty main stream media is....we disagree. It seems to us that there is an effort to turn away from the existential crisis that our democracy is facing. Join us in our group therapy session as we break it down.

    Feminist Utopia E 82: LuLaRich & MLM Misogyny

And if you're someone who believes in social justice (and if you're listening to this podcast I bet you do) it can feel overwhelming just trying to do the right thing. So this week I want to discuss the "good enough" activist.
