    64 The Witcher

    Every once in a while, the girls come across a piece of non-film media that deserves discussion. This week, that is THE WITCHER, aka Game of Thrones' heart-warming, goofy, better-written cousin. They'll discuss female-created fantasy, break down the primary characters and share hopes / predictions for Season 2.

Anyone inspired by Roxane Gay has a fan in me!

Only recently discovered this podcast, but I’m already obsessed! The hosts are charming and informative in their analysis of current film and pop culture trends. Just bought a Bad Feminist Film Club baseball tee and can’t wait to keep listening <3

More like Rad Feminist Film Club!

You know you love a podcast when you’ll happily listen to the hosts talk about anything, even Twilight. Kelly and Sarah have delightful chemistry and a true love of film. They’ve introduced me to some smaller movies I may not have seen otherwise and tackled big-name blockbusters from a feminist perspective. Their dissection of whether or not a film is feminist, independently of whether or not it’s a good movie, is always interesting. I’m seriously excited every time a new episode drops. Everyone should listen to this podcast! <3 The Indoorswomen Podcast
