    Episode 15: Resistance! The Nightingale/ Guerrilla Girls

    This week the sisters talk about the overlap of two seemingly different things: The Nightingale, a novel by Kirstin Hannah and the art of the Guerrilla Girls, an anonymous group of feminist activist artists producing projects since the mid- 1980s.
