ep.43 The Feminist Spanish Armada
In this very catholic-sounding episode Mari talks to Virginia, who took her Spanishness and went to be a raging feminist in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
She is the brain power behind The Feminist Shop and is just so unapologetically honest and straight forward, that it’s just impressing beyond belief.
Some topics discussed in this episode: intersectional feminism, abortion rights, violence against women, pregnancy loss, equality, socioeconomics. We also talk about books and books and books.
Ep. 42 Indian Mothers, Stand Up Comedy and R*pe Culture ft. Anshita Koul

Tune in for the most uncomfortable funny conversation you’ll ever witness.
TW: violence against women; sexual assault; harassment; mental health issues
Ep. 41 My first ever love letter
After a long hiatus Mari is back in the pod tent to tell you why she loves you. And how she's spent the last few months. There's a lot of talk about mental health, the Soviet Union, why patriarchy really sucks and how our brains are as full of old junk as our wardrobes are full of crap from 2005.
It's going to be short, not too sweet and you probably won't cum. That's what he said.

Episode 20 Feminism and all the tough topics
This episode is another Mari-in-a-tent-ranting episode.
She talks about feminism, intersectional feminism, what is up with Eastern Europe not dealing with their racism and all the shitty things that come to her mind sometimes about other people. There’s talk of slavery, serfdom, cultural differences in how history is understood and why it matters today.
It’s raw, it’s honest, it’s brutal and it’s Mari.
