Britney Spears has been under a permanent conservatorship since 2008. All financial and personal decisions must be approved by her conservators, including her father, Jamie Spears. Britney has earned hundreds of millions of dollars during this time, performing and touring extensively, while being deemed too impaired by the courts to be in control of her life. Britney is one of the most recognizable celebrities in the world, yet very little of the massive media coverage she generates has focused on the conservatorship until recently as the #FreeBritney movement has grown. Why aren't more people aware that Britney Spears has been under a permanent conservatorship for more than 13 years? Why and how is it possible that one of the most famous women in the world has remained in a virtual prison of lawyers, managers, and handlers with no end in sight? Eat, Pray, Britney tries to draw attention to the restrictive situation Britney is currently in, while also examining her life and career through a feminist lens.
2 Years of Eat, Pray, Britney!
In this episode, we celebrate two years of our little podcast! We kick the conversation off with a discussion about Britney's IG post referring to Framing Britney Spears.

Part Two will be available on Dunzo this Friday.
Shifter Jason Trawick
Jason Trawick is a bit of a mystery despite his relationship and subsequent engagement to the Queen of Pop, Britney Spears. We take a full episode to discuss his personal background and career.

The Slow Road to Justice
In this episode, we discuss all of the current Britney events from late February through March.

Steve Dennis: Inside the Dream
In this episode, we interview biographer Steve Dennis! His book, Britney: Inside the Dream, is required reading for our podcast, so we were thrilled to ask him all of our burning Britney questions.
Steve shares many fascinating insights about Britney's childhood, family, fame, and life-shaping events, and puts Britney the person back in the forefront of the conversation.
Looking at Lynne
In this episode, we review an interview with Lynne Spears from way back in 2008. We break down her candid answers during a time when Britney was just launching her comeback. There may be many Lynn/Lynnes in Britney's orbit, but her mother is by far the most interesting!
