    Media Storm - a new podcast from The House of the Guilty Feminist

    Media Storm - a new podcast from The House of the Guilty Feminist

    Media Storm is a new podcast from The House of the Guilty Feminist.
    It’s a current affairs show that starts with the people who are usually asked last. “Migrants”, “criminals” and “sex workers” are some of the biggest stars in the headlines, yet we rarely actually hear from them. Here, we provide a space for these minority groups to get their right of reply. Media Storm hands the mic to people with lived experience, to shed new light on old stories and roast the headlines that love to roast them.
    To listen to more episodes, click here: https://podfollow.com/media-storm
    Or search for “Media Storm” wherever you get your podcasts.

Kiblet22 ,

Thank you for the joy-restoring comedy!

I hadn’t realised how much I’ve missed Ned Sedgewick’s voice! Y’all rock and this episode is the perfect pick me up on a chilly autumn day that looms too closely to scary elections. Lovely stuff.

sculptureJLF ,

Deborah Frances White is so good! She’s truly changing my life and I just got all caught up, listening to all of these in just a few weeks..funny entertaining, interesting and just again funny!
