    #83 Choice Feminism with Haley Nahman

    #83 Choice Feminism with Haley Nahman

    Hey Podulters, I hope you’re having an ok lockdown so far! This week's episode is with writer and editor based in New York, Haley Nahman. She was the features director and deputy editor of Man Repeller, and now she runs her own blog ‘maybe baby’ with 30 thousand subscribers. I found her when I read her blog ‘the Emily Ratajkowski effect’, that she wrote in response to Emily’s essay on reclaiming her own image. Here is the piece if you haven't read it yet; https://haleynahman.substack.com/p/24-the-cult-of-emily-ratajkowski. We discuss lots of the themes in Haley's blog but mostly consider 'choice feminism'. I hope you enjoy, and as always please do rate review and subscribe.

    No Time To Spare, Ursula Le Guin
    Never Let Me Go, Kazuo Ishiguro
