Disobedient Femmes features fascinating feminists

I’ve been binge-listening to this excellent podcast. Suzanne LeGrande is an excellent host; she’s so good at discovering interesting stories about her subjects, and she has a lovely rapport. Now I eagerly await new episodes!

Suzanne's podcasts

I've listened to a few of these podcasts and find them informative, useful and helpful. Suzanne is a great host. She's always prepared, has familiarized herself with her guest's work and thought and comes up with stimulating and provocative questions. I'm a fan.

Conversations with Women Re-making the World

This is a smart, wide-ranging podcast that features women who are transforming the world in a variety of ways. There's an artistic bent to the interviews but they have a broad appeal, too. I appreciate how the host provides a lot of space for the guests to speak deeply and expansively. High quality stuff!
